    Hi there.

    I downloaded both NeoReader and QuickMark today. They're two QR-Code decoding apps that have this very neat functionality: if the QR Code you're decoding is an URL, they allow you to open a browser and go there immediately. So I thought: is it possible to redirect a user to another android app instead of the browser?

    Say I build an app with a 5 pages of info and I build 5 QR Codes, each of them with the ID of one of the pages. Is it possible for me to, by using a QR Code Reader, redirect the user to the right page inside that app according to the QR Code he's decoding?

    I hope I was clear enough and thanks in advance.

    Edit: I found out that creating a QR Code with the following link: "market://search?q=pname:com.metago.astro" does not open the browser, but goes directly to the market search. So is there any code that I can insert into a QR Code that would do the same thing but with another app?
