I don't know if Android (etc.) support this, but in iOS, apps can assign themselves URL-like addresses, and even have complex actions attached to them. For example, fb:// launches Facebook, while fb://profile launches your profile and fb://requests opens the requests page. This works from Safari, of course, but also can be used wherever hyperlinks can be used: emails, to-do lists, and specialized apps like AppLauncher. I'd love to plug it into my ifttt Gmail→Boxcar push notification rule (for the users: for all those times when push notifications may be down; for the devs: cheaper you pushing notifications yourself).
