You use an
MKDirections object when requesting or providing directions. If your app provides directions, use this class to decode the URL sent to you by Maps. If you need to request directions from Apple, pass an instance of this class to an
MKDirections object. For example, an app that provides subway directions might request walking directions to and from relevant subway stations.
For apps that provide directions, you receive direction-related URLs in your app delegate’s
application: method. Upon receiving a URL, call the
is method of this class to determine if the URL is related to routing directions. If it is, create an instance of this class using the provided URL and extract the map items associated with the start and end points.
