    react-native-check-app-install

    Installation

    npm i --save react-native-check-app-install
    react-native link
    

    Usage

    Check out the example app in the example folder.

    import { AppInstalledChecker, CheckPackageInstallation } from 'react-native-check-app-install';
     
    // To check by app name:
    AppInstalledChecker
        .isAppInstalled('whatsapp')
        .then((isInstalled) => {
            // isInstalled is true if the app is installed or false if not
        });
     
    // To check using URL (works on iOS and Android):
    AppInstalledChecker
        .checkURLScheme('whatsapp') // omit the :// suffix
        .then((isInstalled) => {
            // isInstalled is true if the app is installed or false if not
        })
     
    // To check using package name (Android only):
    AppInstalledChecker
        .isAppInstalledAndroid('com.whatsapp') 
        .then((isInstalled) => {
            // isInstalled is true if the app is installed or false if not
        });

    You can retrieve the list of supported app names by calling AppInstalledChecker.getAppList() or check in app-list.js. If your app is not in the list, you will have to find out the URL scheme or package name and use either isAppInstalledIOS(url) or isAppInstalledAndroid(pacakge-name).

    Android package names can be found on the Google PlayStore. For example, the URL for the Twitter app is https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.twitter.android the package name is the value of the id query parameter, i.e. com.twitter.android.

    iOS URL schemes can be found by googling or checking this unofficial registry: http://handleopenurl.com (site seems down at the moment)
