I concur!
I use Drafts extensively as my collection point for iOS devices, and I would VERY much like to have the URL scheme available for that and work Workflow.app.

Bump. This is still an open question.

Can you give an example of how you used this?

Yes, I used the Workflow app to get the site URL and Page Title from Safari. I then made the page Title in title case and copied it to the clipboard. Finally I had workflow send the web page URL to TheBrain on iOS using the app URL. 

When TheBrain automatically opened I could create a new thought and paste in the page title as the name. Then I could add the web page from the Inbox. 
I had this working and a copy posted in the iOS forum so anyone with the Workflow app could use it. 

This really smooths out a difficult workflow for TheBrain iOS, adding a new thought from a web page. Otherwise I have to create the thought, remember what the page is called, type the name, then add the URL.

Thanks for explaining. The URL scheme you are thinking of existing only because when that version was released, there was no other way to share from Safari to TheBrain. In V9, the inbox can be accessed via iOS's share sheets.

If you could create a thought from an item in the inbox (which would name the thought based on the page's title, just like on the desktop) that would accomplish the same thing, but better, correct?
