You’ve already seen a number of ways that apps can communicate with each other. In  Chapter 6, you used FileOpenPicker and FileSavePicker to share resume data between UWP apps.

In the case of the Maps app from  Chapter 8 you learned how parameters can be passed from the calling app and utilized in the receiving app. This chapter continues the notion of app-to-app communication by introducing a number of new ways in which apps can communicate with one another. You will also be revisiting the aforementioned approaches. The primary ways that data can be shared between apps are


Application Service Event Handler Protocol Activation Query String Shared Storage
