        Every application life cycle involves periodic updates. Bug fixes, new feature and changes that allow supporting new hardware cause software manufacturers to provide the user with new builds of their software. Unlike the desktop where the user can be simply directed to the web site, on mobile devices it is nice to have some level of control over the update process.
        This sample shows how an application can be "automagically" updated from the mobile device.
        This sample assumes a certain level of familiarity with both the .NET Compact Framework and Web services.
