How to find if an Windows Phone App is installed from Marketplace or Sideloaded ?

Today , i was testing one of my Windows Phone App and ended up verifying the wrong version …

Infact , i had the 2 different version of the same App installed on my phone of which one was installed from Marketplace and the new one was sideloaded or a developer App .

Here’s a simple idea to find out if the Windows Phone App is installed from Marketplace or Sideloaded .

1. Tap and hold the App icon in the App list .

2. This will show a context menu with list of options .

The App that is sideloaded or loaded by the developer will not have the “Rate and Review” option in the context menu .

See the screenshots below
