Link from within an app to App World

Is there a way to provide a link within an app to another app on App World? Basically a link that brings up the App World app on the phone with this other app already selected and ready to purchase.

 

For example, within App Lite I want to promote and provide a purchase button for App Pro. Both Android Market and Itunes have this mechanism so I am fairly sure App World probably has a way too, but I havent been able to find it. This would be very useful in the Try & Buy implementation to let trial users easily purchase the full version.

 

thanks

Yes.

To find the appid, log in to the vendor portal and hover your cursor over your application on the list, and note the id.

 

Hope this helps.
