    Registering an app to be available in the ShareLinkTask list.

    I have searched and am not sure it is possible to create an app which will be in the list of options for the ShareLinkTask launcher. From what I have read, the only apps that can do this are built in apps.
    The reason for leveraging this API is the following:
    A user browses on the phone and would like to share this link via another social networking site. It is not Facebook or Twitter or any of the other built in sources.
    Is this possible?

    As far as I could find this is not possible at the moment.

    This article details all the possibilities for integrating with the Windows Phone platform: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/libr...v=vs.105).aspx

    If this is a feature you'd like to see in a future version of the platform you could submit it at http://wpdev.uservoice.com and have fellow developers state support there.

    What you can still do is to register a URI for your App as described in http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/libr...RIassociations so other developers can actively choose to allow sharing using your App. Several Apps already allowing for this can be found here: http://developer.nokia.com/Community...n_Schemes_List If you decide to go that route it would be best to add your App's URI to the article so other developers know about the App they can share with now.
