Defines methods and properties you can use to get license and listing info about the current app and perform in-app product purchases.
The CurrentApp class and the other types in the Windows.ApplicationModel.Store namespace are no longer being updated with new features. If your project targets Windows 10 Anniversary Edition (10.0; Build 14393) or a later release in Visual Studio (that is, you are targeting Windows 10, version 1607, or later), we recommend that you use the Windows.Services.Store namespace instead. For more information, see In-app purchases and trials. The CurrentApp class is not supported in Windows desktop applications that use the Desktop Bridge or in apps or games that use a development sandbox in Partner Center (for example, this is the case for any game that integrates with Xbox Live). These products must use the Windows.Services.Store namespace to implement in-app purchases and trials.
This object obtains its data from the Microsoft Store, so you must have a developer account and the app must be published in the Microsoft Store. Before submitting to the Microsoft Store, you can test your code with a simulated version of this class (whose state is initialized from an XML file). See CurrentAppSimulator.

This overload includes parameters you can use to display details for a specific offer within a large catalog of in-app purchases that is represented by a single product entry in the Store.
