<-- App ID (required), Affiliate Data (Optional), Argument (Optional) -->
<meta name="apple-itunes-app" content="app-id=myAppStoreID, affiliate-data=myAffiliateData, app-argument=myURL">
<-- Digg's tag -->
<meta name="apple-itunes-app" content="app-id=362872995, affiliate-data=bevbOqLt02I, app-argument=digg://">
