Hi ukerandi,

How are you opening this another app? Launch or openUrl?

Thank you very much for your email.

LaunchUrl does not have any options but openUrl accepts openUrlOptions which allow you to pass height and width. I am not sure if your app can do it or not. I think openUrl is only supported in Model-driven apps, not in the canvas apps.
