How to open another app from inside our app

I am trying out something in my game, for that to work I need to open a certain app from the user’s device at the start of the game. This app is in-built, something like settings/contacts etc, so it will always be present on the user’s device. Is it possible to open such an app through my game code? The device can be Android or IOS.

I wanted to do something similar, is it possible to do this on solar2D?

You can open any app from your application.
