Opening App World from within AIR app without having the browser open a blank window?

Hi all,

 

My question, as you can see from the title of this post is, Can you open the App world app from within an AIR app without using navigateToUrl, which causes the browser to open first with a blank window.  In my app right now I have a button that open the App World page from my app so users can post reviews,  or buy the full version,  but it just looks a little slopply the way this works when using navigateToUrl.  Is there any other method for opening the App World app?

 

Thanks

Use navigateToUrl(new URLRequest("appworld://content/[app_id_here]"));

Yes, but is there a way to get around the blank screen in the browser? (I am in the same boat but I don't think there is a workaround.)

This does not open the browser. If you look at the url, it starts with appworld: , which opens the appworld directly.
