Open Google Maps APP, Not the web page

I have used the following code to open Google Maps in the past.

app.launchURL("https://www.google.com/maps/search/" + this.getField("txtAddress").valueAsString);

However now some want to use their iPads & google maps in offline mode.  As far as I know this can only be down with the Google Maps Application, not the web app.  I can download google mapse from the IOS Google Maps application to an iPad, but cant seem to open the App instead of the website using the field "txtAddrress" as a search string.


Any help opening the Google Maps IOS application and not the web site htp://maps.google.com, then using my text field as a search string, greatly appriciated.
