Check for application version and notify the user that there is an update?

    Question

  • Hi, I have developed an app for W8 (JS, CSS, HTML) and wanted to know if there was a way to check if the version in the marketplace is differente than the version that the user is running, so as to notify him of this.

    Thanks and best regards

  • The Store API doesn't provide this information, so you will need to provide it yourself. You can provide the latest version information in a web service and update it when you publish the new version.

    The default behavior is for the store app to notify the user of all updates.
