Marketplace Links, a Follow Up: There’s An App For That

A couple of weeks ago, I posted about the best way to share marketplace links, so that links would open in the correct marketplace for your platform (web or phone). But if someone is still sharing the web links, well there’s a lot of faffing around to get that to open in the marketplace on the phone, so is there a solution? Yes.
I recently had an app approved in the marketplace called App Link Helper. What this will allow you to do is put in the web marketplace link (the one that looks like this http://www.windowsphone.com/en-GB/apps/cbcf4731-d988-4d9a-83c3-ec95df272de2), just paste it in, and open that app straight from the phone’s marketplace. You can also copy the proper link to your clipboard or get a bitly shortened link for it.
