CurrentAppSimulator.AppId Property


Gets a simulated app ID. Since CurrentAppSimulator is intended only for testing during app development, the returned CurrentAppSimulator.AppId will contain only 0's.

Once your app is listed on the Windows Store, CurrentApp.AppId will get the GUID generated during app on-boarding and used to list your app within the Windows Store catalog.


App updates or changes to the app description will not result in a change to the CurrentApp.AppId.
