1. A computer-implemented method of invoking a third-party target application (app) from a mobile browser and automatically returning to the mobile browser upon completion without user intervention, the computer-implemented method comprising:

  • receiving, by a mobile device platform of a mobile device, first call data of a service process submitted by the mobile browser of the mobile device when a service call for the third-party target app installed on the mobile device is initiated, wherein the first call data comprises a custom parameter used to invoke the third-party target app and identification information of the mobile browser, and wherein the identification information comprises package name information of the mobile browser;

    invoking, by the mobile device platform based on the custom parameter, the third-party target app to execute a corresponding target service;

    transferring, by the mobile device platform, the identification information of the mobile browser to the third-party target app to cause the third-party target app to execute the corresponding target service;

    receiving, by the mobile device platform, second call data indicating that the third-party target app executed the corresponding target service, the second call data including the package name information of the mobile browser submitted by the third-party target app, wherein the second call data comprises an intent constructed, based on the package name information of the mobile browser, by the third-party target app and used to invoke the mobile browser;

    receiving, by the mobile device platform, the intent;

    querying, by the mobile device platform, a system server for an activity component corresponding to the package name information of the mobile browser; and

    invoking, by the mobile device platform, the activity component to return to the mobile browser, wherein invoking the activity component to return to the mobile browser includes ensuring application compatibility and eliminating data security breach points by automatically returning to the mobile browser instead of requiring manual selection of the mobile browser.
