One great interactive feature to add to your Mag+ Issue is the ability to tap a link and have a pre-populated e-mail open—this is great for letting users communicate with you or for giving them a way to share a snippet of a story, like a recipe.
Here's how to create a link that opens an e-mail:
- In the URL field of the Hotspot, you can enter one of the following:
- If you want the email address to be pre-populated, type the address (i.e. mailto://firstname.lastname@example.org).
- If you want to pre-populate the subject, body or both enter something like the following:
mailto://email@example.com?&subject=Check this out&body=Check out this awesome app
- If you want to pre-populate the subject and body but leave the address blank, enter something like the following:
mailto://?subject=Check this out&body=Check out this awesome app!
When the user taps the Hotspot, it will open an e-mail window on top of the page. When the user hits Send or Cancel, it will return them to the screen in the app that they were reading. They do not have to leave your Mag+ app.
