Would be great if URLs to http://slideme.com/application/* could be opened by SAM.
This way it's easier to promote applications with links and QR codes.
Thanks. That's a great suggestion! We will add into our SAM release, which should be out today.
We are thinking something like this: sam://search?bundleId=ccf29ee2-7b12-102c-9e11-12313a00d126
This feature is now in the latest SAM 3.0 release. Check it out.
Excellent! I really love when requested features are added within five hours :)
How can I find the bundleId for a given application? I've been looking at the html source without any luck :)
I also get a Force close with the SAM URL you provided.
How are you testing this? I did a link from a page directly within SAM to test and it worked fine. But in the browser sam:// is replaced by http:// making it fail. It looks like for you at least the right activity is being called. Are you doing this through a browser?
Thanks for this report it was helpful. Mine was passing since I already had this app entry in my local catalog. I just moved the remote catalog loading BEFORE using the cursor for display. I'll have this fix out for 3.1.
On your web page it would be nice to have a QR code for each application satisfying the use case:
As a user
I would like to browse the SlideMe catalog using my web browser and when finding an interesting application easily download it to my phone.
By the way, I still wonder how I can find the bundle id for a given application?
A link to the new documentation would be nice. I can't find information anywhere on SlideMe about how to do this - there is only the developer FAQ. I would like to link to my paid app from my free app, so people will buy it on SlideMe.
