Thanks for a great tool!

I would like you to consider adding a button to do something like:

 

 public static void MoreFromPublisher()
        {
                Microsoft.Phone.Tasks.MarketplaceSearchTask t = new Microsoft.Phone.Tasks.MarketplaceSearchTask();
                t.ContentType = Microsoft.Phone.Tasks.MarketplaceContentType.Applications;
                t.SearchTerms = "publishername";
                t.Show();
        }

Hi Jerschio,

you may take a look at the following project: http://applistcontrol.codeplex.com/

After installing this User-Control you can add an additional pivot page to your about dialog with the following entry in Data.xml:

<Item Title="showcase" Type="xaml">
  <AppsListControl:PublisherAppsControl
    xmlns:AppsListControl="clr-namespace:Coding4Fun.AppsListControl;assembly=Coding4Fun.AppsListControl"
    PublisherName="<your publisher name goes here!>" />
</Item>
 

I believe this is a better way to promote your other apps as the user doesn't has to leave your app. Looks more "intergrated" imho :)
