var package = Windows.ApplicationModel.Package.current;
var dependencies = package.dependencies;

// The count of dependencies is dependencies.length
var output = [ "Count: " + dependencies.length ];

for (var i = 0; i < dependencies.length; i++) 
{
    // The package full name is dependency.id.fullName
