Windows Marketplace for Mobile 6.x to be Discontinued

If you publish apps on the old Marketplace for Windows Mobile 6.x you should have received reminders that the service will be discontinued in two weeks. If you have been using our Mobile In The Hand product with a managed code app there are a couple of issues to be aware of. Our libraries contain the following two classes to provide programmatic access to the Marketplace client on Windows Mobile 6.x:-

  • InTheHand.Phone.Tasks.MarketplaceDetailTask
  • InTheHand.Phone.Tasks.MarketplaceLauncher

If these are called on a device with the Marketplace client installed they will launch the client application however once the service is discontinued no application details will be accessible so this may result in a confusing experience for your users. Consider these classes obsolete as they will no longer be supported and will be removed from the next release.
