  • That is what hidden does, it hides the app from searches (Related apps, etc) on the market.

  • If an 'hidden' app is not searchable in the marketplace but available to people with the url, it is quite an acceptable implementation. But the problem is that the 'hidden' app is searchable in Google (but not Bing) and the link is live, then I think MS should do something about it and other developers should know about this so they know what they are getting into when they 'hide' the app.

    So I have un-marked the answer, hoping to keep this alive and get MS attention to fix it.
