  • No, there is no API specifically for this. You can link to specific apps as described at Linking to your app, but the overall store information is only exposed through the visible site, not programmatically.

  • Thank you the quick answer. I  am sorry to hear that :-( In iOS and in Android it is possible to reach the store programmatically and there it is possible to write small good utilities for the store. It would be nice if the Microsoft allow it, like them.
