First, make sure to reference the Microsoft.Phone.Tasks Library
In your XAML you can add a HyperlinkButton with a click even like this:
<HyperlinkButton x:Name="Email" Content="firstname.lastname@example.org" Click="Email_Click"/>
Then use the EmailComposeTask class to bring up the mail client.
private void Email_Click(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)
EmailComposeTask email = new EmailComposeTask();
email.To = "email@example.com";
email.Subject = "Thanks";
In a similar manner, you instantiate WebBrowserTask to bring up the browser with the provided link
private void MyBlog_Click(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)
WebBrowserTask web = new WebBrowserTask();
web.URL = "https://www.chrisrios.com";
