Updatable metro style app RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I'm developing an app that needs to be updated in the future, but i don't know how to implement an updatable metro style app yet, so can anyone kindly answer my few questions belowed:

    1. If i deploy my app via App Store, do i need to implement any thing or does the App Store will take care of the update for me?

    2. How do i tell the App Store that there are updates available for my app?

    3. Is it possible to update my app manually without any help from the App Store?

    Thanks,

  • You would submit the updated app to the store. You won't need to do anything else special.

    The user will update the app through the Store app.

  • Hi Rob,

    Can you answer my 3rd point above? E.g: if i install a metro style app, later on, i have a newer version of the app package locally, can i be able to update the installed app using my local package? Or do i have to uninstall the app first, then re-install using the new package?

  • Same answer as before: you would need to submit the update to the store for the user to download.

    Thank Rob, i get the picture now. And i have one small question that may need your help in. When the App Store update my application, what will happen to the application data? Will they be kept?
