Hi,

Have you seen the free apps that advertise paid apps and clicking the ad opens AppStore on an iPhone/iPod Touch? How can I create something like that?

should openURL of UIApplication work? (Although on Simulator, it opens Safari and pops an error message saying "Safari cannot open the page because address is invalid")

--
Regards,

Yes it will work on the device, the App store App is not available on the simulator.
