get the most updated version of my using a sort of of WebAPI on the windows phone store RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi guys, I need some help.

    In my application I need to know if the app version is running on the devices of my customers is the most updated OR it could be updated. Other App store (iOS and Adroid) it's available a web API that provide detailed info about the version currently available on the app store in a confortable JSON format. Is it available something like that in the Windows phone store? or is it possible to obtain the "current" version in the store in any other way?

    Thank you, thank you all.

  • This isn't generally necessary since the apps will auto-update by default (the user can turn this off).

    The only time you really need to check is if the app talks to the server and the protocol may change. Then the client and server should confirm the protocol version and insist on an update if they are out of shape.
