Getting URL from UIWebView

It thought I'd post how to get the current URL string from a UIWebView object. Here you go:

NSString *currentURL
= myWebView.request.URL.absoluteString;

That is assuming myWebView is your UIWebView object.

To open a web page in Safari from a UIWebView, do this:

[[UIApplication sharedApplication]

Awesome, and very elegant. Was trying to implement a JS-based method/assignment, but this one-liner fixed all my problems, and required a lot less code.
