How to handle UIApplication handleOpenURL with multiple URL's

I have an app that will be using both Facebook and Instagram API’s, both of which require me to use this delegate method:

- (BOOL)application:(UIApplication *)application openURL:(NSURL *)url sourceApplication:(NSString *)sourceApplication annotation:(id)annotation {

    return [PFFacebookUtils handleOpenURL:url];

}

and this is the code provided by instagram:

  • Link to app manage subscriptions in app store
  • Unable to search in iTunes Store on iOS8
  • iOS 9.3 freeze after calling openURL
  • UIApplication openURL background
  • Handling different URL Schemes in iOS (Facebook and Instagram)
  • Story link flow using SSO facebook - openURL not being called
  • -(BOOL)application:(UIApplication *)application openURL:(NSURL *)url sourceApplication:(NSString *)sourceApplication annotation:(id)annotation {
    
        return [self.instagram handleOpenURL:url];
    
    }
    

    As you can see, this is a problem because I can only return one URL handler, but I need to be able to decide which one.

    In my app delegate, I have commented out the Instagram option above and left only Facebook. As expected, Facebook will work just fine, but I get this error when I tap authorize on Instagram:

    Instagram URL error

    Obviously, Facebook is trying to handle the return URL from Instagram so it will error.

    Is it plausible to check the URL to see if it contains the app ID for each service I am trying? So if URL contains the instagram ID, then return the instagram handler, if it contains the Facebook ID, then return the Facebook Handler.

    Any help would be great, thanks!

    Facebook and Instagram both had you setup a custom URL scheme for their services, so we will use that to filter the URL.

    -(BOOL)application:(UIApplication *)application openURL:(NSURL *)url sourceApplication:(NSString *)sourceApplication annotation:(id)annotation {
    
        if ([[url scheme] isEqualToString:INSTAGRAM_SCHEME])
            return [self.instagram handleOpenURL:url];
    
        if ([[url scheme] isEqualToString:FACEBOOK_SCHEME])
            return [PFFacebookUtils handleOpenURL:url];
    
        return NO;
    
    }
    

    Where you define your variables as

    #define INSTAGRAM_SCHEME @"ig12345678910"
    #define FACEBOOK_SCHEME  @"fb12345678910"
    

    exactly as you did in your Info.plist file
