  • Hi Anuj,

    Metro style applications are sandboxed for security.

    You cannot share data between two apps without either using share contracts or talking to an external web service that could allow the apps to talk.  The exception is if these two apps are packaged in the same app package, but that does not seem like what you want.

  • I am sorry Anuj, I do not understand what you are asking.  Are you asking how to reformat your Metro style app so it displays differently in snapped view?

  • Hi Jeff,

    My Question is when the app is snapped I can work on 2 different apps simultaneously. How can i make them interactive on invasively without invoking share contracts ? We are exploring this for our POC. Please help
