This isn't possible given WP's security model. The WebBrowserTask launches the Web Browser application, which doesn't have access to your application's Isolated Storage.
This is a user feature, not a development feature
Thank you for the suggestion and the spirited commentary. We are not adding this capability in the 8.0 release, but know that it is high on the consideration list for future Windows Phone releases.
I am familiar with ShareStatus/Link, but they don't include custom features such as "like" or accessing the user's friend list. The core API will never be able to match the Twitter/Facebook/LinkedIn SDKs feature-for-feature, so allowing the application to obtain an access token (with user approval, noting permissions) would allow them to do more.
Even the official Facebook/Twitter applications forces you to re-authenticate - it doesn't make any sense.Richard Szalay shared this idea ·
With touch events being moved onto another thread in Mango, you should see an improvement in perceived performance. If not, try to simplify your UI (complex layouts are more expensive).
