    I have a real obscure bug with Kendo UI mobile, if you navigate to this page on an iPhone
    http://www.bobclubs.com/app/Person/1064?Region=uk#/ click the "send SMS/Text" link, all works fine.

    Now save the page as a "add to home screen" and reopen, the SMS link now doesn't work.

    I have tested this on a windows phone and Andriod phone and it all works ok even if I pin the page to the start/home pages.

    Hi Richard,

    This looks like an issue with iOS7 and it is not related to Kendo UI Mobile. Please check the following link to see if it is going to work from your home screen:


    Currently there is a bug in iOS7 that does not allow links to be opened from home screen apps. I guess this is the reason behind the problem that you are facing as well.
