"Unpublish" and "Hide" don't really work. Can still get the app if you know how to look for it. RRS feed

  • Question

  • I made a couple of webapps to display the website of a couple of companies that were dragging their feet on supporting Windows Phone. They subsequently made their own apps and complained, so I both hid the apps from the store and unpublished them. I thought that would take care of it.

    Today, I have noticed that if I go to the purchase history in the MS account associated with my phone, I still see those apps with the notation "this app is no longer published" but I can still click on the link, see a full description, and download the app manually.

    I do not want these companies to have any ammunition to use against me. I have complied with their wishes as far as I am able, how do I make these apps really be unpublished?

  • You can only download it but you won't be able to install an unpublished app.
