    What's the BB / forum code for linking to an app?

    I know I can right-click in iTunes and then come here and paste that link and use the "Insert Link" widget [​IMG]
    but I'm sure there was a quick-type method just using the name of the app and some straight-bracketed [APP] method or something...

    Can anyone enlighten me?

    Well I can use tags to link to Google:

    HTML:
    [url="http://www.google.com"]Google[/url]
    If there's a similar way to link to apps, that would be cool. :)

    Edit - maybe this works?
    HTML:
    [app="insert url to app"]App name[/app]
    Let's try.
    [app="http://itunes.apple.com/WebObjects/MZStore.woa/wa/viewSoftware?id=299461156&mt=8"]Rolando[/app]
    Hmm no that doesn't work completely.

    However, if you simply paste the exact app name after
    HTML:
    http://linktoapp.com/
    , it will work.
    So
    HTML:
    [url="http://linktoapp.com/Rolando"]Rolando[/url]
    will give you
    Rolando

    Oh, and if you're mobile, on twitter, or simply don't want to type much, just use http://L2app.com since it will work as well (in fact, it's the same). :)
