App install support

This allow users to download your app (if the user doesn't already have it installed), or deep-link into your own app (if the app is already installed on the user's mobile device). Please note that if you have an iPhone app, but no iPad-optimized app, you should include the iPhone app id, name, and url for both iPhone and iPad-related tags. When no value are provided, CedTwittercards will simply render a "View on web" link pointing to your article. App ID value for iPhone and iPad should be the numeric App Store ID, while the App ID for Google Play should be the Android package name. Deep-Linking If a user does have the application installed, you can specify a deep-link into the correlated resource within your own application. When a user clicks on the "Open in app" tap target, Twitter will send that user out into your application. This value is specified in the "twitter:app:name:(iphone|ipad|googleplay)" tags. The app url should be your app-specific URL Scheme (requires registration within your app) that launches your app on the appropriate client.
