API Usage

Check for latest version

Check if the current running app is the latest version available in the public store:

bool isLatest = await CrossLatestVersion.Current.IsUsingLatestVersion();

Get latest version number

Get the version number of the current running app's latest version available in the public store:

string latestVersionNumber = await CrossLatestVersion.Current.GetLatestVersionNumber();

Get the version number of any app's latest version available in the public store:

string latestVersionNumber = await CrossLatestVersion.Current.GetLatestVersionNumber("appName");
  • appName should be the app's bundle identifier (CFBundleIdentifier) on iOS/macOS and the app's package name on Android.
  • This method is not currently supported on UWP. Only GetLatestVersionNumber() is supported.

Get installed version number

Get the version number of the current app's installed version:

string installedVersionNumber = CrossLatestVersion.Current.InstalledVersionNumber;

Open app in public store

Open the current running app in the public store:

await CrossLatestVersion.Current.OpenAppInStore();

Open any app in the public store:

await CrossLatestVersion.Current.OpenAppInStore("appName");
  • appName should be the app's bundle name (CFBundleName or CFBundleDisplayName) on iOS/macOS, the app's package name on Android, and the app's Store ID or App ID on Windows.

Example

using Plugin.LatestVersion;

var isLatest = await CrossLatestVersion.Current.IsUsingLatestVersion();

if (!isLatest)
{
    var update = await DisplayAlert("New Version", "There is a new version of this app available. Would you like to update now?", "Yes", "No");

    if (update)
    {
        await CrossLatestVersion.Current.OpenAppInStore();
    }
}
