A Bonjour service discovery app for iPhone, iPod, and iPad

HelloNet version 1.2.1 added support for customer URL handling, allowing other apps on your iOS device to launch HelloNet and start looking for services. Developers can build support for launching HelloNet in their apps and websites.

Supported URLs

HelloNet responds to two URL formats. The simplest one is used simply to launch HelloNet.


The second format launches HelloNet and starts discovering the specified service type.

hellonet://browse/<DNS SRV Service Type>
