Launching the Amazon Shopping App from Ionic

As a small technical note for “the community”, the Shoulder Angel technical team would like to flag up the importance of the “allow-navigation” elements in Ionic’s “config.xml” file. If you want to launch the Amazon Shopping App from your Ionic app – not simply redirect to pages in Amazon – it is important that you NOT have a line in config.xml that allows a wildcard navigation.

A line like…

… will ensure that your stuff never goes to the Amazon app. You need to restrict your allowable navigations, in order to force the navigations back to the Amazon app.
