AppStore Links

Description

Use this Plugin if you are tired in changing URLs and prices on every Link to the AppStore on your page. This plugin updates all Data directly from the Apple Server. You also can setup caching-times for images and the content. If you have an PHG-ID the plugin automatically creates Affiliate Links to the AppStore.

You can easily add Links to the Apple AppStore with using [app ##idnumber##] in your posts, pages or comments. The ID number is the number from the official AppStore URL.

  • [appimg ##idnumber##] gives you the screenshots!
  • [appext ##idnumber##] gives you info, screenshots and a nice border.
  • BETA (use with care): You can use something like: [app 307658513]Developer:{trackname}
    Price:{price} {dllink}
    [/app]
  • With these tags: {trackname}, {sellername}, {dllink}, {price}, {stars}, {description}, {artwork100}, {artwork60}
