    Launch Another Windows Phone Application from my Application

    Hi Nokia Developers,

    I want to use other inbuilt Windows Phone application within my Windows Phone application. (ex. I am building an Application for competitive Exams like GRE or GMAT , I want that my app user can use calculator inside my application itself. I don't want to code my own calculator rather would like to use inbuilt calculator application inside my application) . How may I do this?

    If using other application within my application is not possible. Then is there any way by which I can launch calculator app to open on say button clicked event. So that my user doesn't go out of my app and searches for calculator app to perform calculations.

    If you see the list of options provided by Launchers and Choosers then you will see Calendar app is not mentioned there.

    yes I don't find any such launcher that is why I am asking this question here on the forum. I want a way to either open another app within my application or launch it from my application

    Actually you can't , the Windows Phone system doesnt allow that.
    WP applications are sandboxed, each app is totally independant and isolated from the others.

    You can't embed another App into your App but theoretically you can Launch other Apps using the URI assciation model, see: http://msdn.microsoft.com/de-de/libr...v=vs.105).aspx
    This is WP8 only though and does not exist in WP7.

    That being said, I would not know of a URI association for the Calculator App.

    Thanks SB Dev,

    It would be an interesting challenge for me to find URL extension for the inbuilt calculator App . Sad that this method doesn't support WP 7.x development. This would in someway restrict this functionality of my application users to WP 8.x only. But still at least goal can be achieved and user experience could b improved
