  • Question

  • Hello

    Is anyone know how to check for new version of my app in market?

    I want to show message for user that is new version of app are available.

    I know about Linking to your app article, but this is not that I needed, because it's open page with all apps updates.

  • there is no builtin api for this.

    what you can do is trace the network traffic of the windows store (with fiddler). Then you can ask the latest published version with code in your app and compare it with the current version.

    BUt realise in windows 8.1 the user gets an option to automaticly update their apps without any user interaction.
