How do I share an app? I'd like to share an app with my friend. Is it possible? Just want to send him a link to the store directly from my phone.


If you have the app installed on your phone, just find it in the app list, long-press on it and select "share", then choose how you want to share it (email, SMS, Facebook, OneNote and so on).

If you don't have the app installed, open Store and find it there. If it's a free app, then tap the "share" button at the bottom. If it's a paid app, then expand the app bar (tap the "..." icon at the bottom") and select "share" from there.


Open play store on your phone, open the particular app (you want to share the link of ) , as you open at the bottom you will see two option install/view and share click on share you will get options like google mail , Yahoo mail, facebook and many others choose the one through which you want to share the link.
