    Actually, i don’t really understand. What should i write if i want to download 4shared app at https://market.android.com/details?id=com.forshared&feature=search_result

    /details?id=com.forshared instead of “package.name”?! many thanks

    @Allengether: I guess you would put …
    market://details?id=com.forshared

    Don’t use http, otherwise that would launch the page in the browser. What we want is to open the Marketplace directly on your Android device.
