Linking to other Apps in an App

I want to reference another related app within my application.

 

I went to App World copied the link to the app, put it into the app which references it, previewed it in the web browsers, and it worked fine. But once the referencing app was updated on App World the link no longer worked.

 

Why is this? How can I link to another app from within my app?

Re: Linking to other Apps in an App

Did the AppId change when the app was updated in App World?  If so that would change the URL that you are launching.

Re: Linking to other Apps in an App

I double checked and it hasn't changed. The link works perfectly fine in my browser still.

The app which links to the other app is

https://appworld.blackberry.com/webstore/content/117347/?lang=en

Playbook version only. If you open up the app its the 3rd link down that says 'Canadian Sheep Breeds' then you go to an informational page which has another link that says 'download'.

Re: Linking to other Apps in an App

@Astanley I will have to try the method you linked to.
