URLHelper on Ipad


we have noticed interest in opening the Email client on Ipad from the mobile App.   Unfortunately, sap.m.URLHelper does not work there, but we have a nice solution for it.

if (typeof cordova === "undefined") { // Browser




} else { // Phonegap installed app


  var urlHelper = window.open("mailto:" + mail, "_blank");

  setTimeout(function() {




        }, 1000);


If we are on a browser, then SAP URLHelper will be used.  If we are in the mobile app, then window.open is used, along with a small timeout before closing the dialog.

Enjoy !
