Parameters
text TextView: TextView whose text is to be marked-up with links

pattern Pattern: Regex pattern to be used for finding links

scheme String: URL scheme string (eg http://) to be prepended to the links that do not start with this scheme.

matchFilter Linkify.MatchFilter: The filter that is used to allow the client code additional control over which pattern matches are to be converted into links.
