Another interpretation is that they have been forced to come up with a proprietary url scheme because iOS doesn't allow/enable the handling of URL schemes/app association.

For example, when receiving an email with http on iOS, you can't send it automagically to Opera Mini. 
Users don't have choices on iOS.
