After you add the list to the solution, you can add a column to the list using the user interface.

Add the following code inside the body of the default.aspx page.
<div>
<p>Click on TOD List for adding the thought in that list</p>
<asp:HyperLink ID=”HyperLink1″ runat=”server” Target=”_blank”>TOD</asp:HyperLink>
</div>

Add the following code in code behind under Page_load method in default.aspx.cs

string contextTokenString = TokenHelper.GetContextTokenFromRequest(Request);

SharePointContextToken contextToken =
TokenHelper.ReadAndValidateContextToken(contextTokenString, Request.Url.Authority);

Uri sharepointUrl = new Uri(Request.QueryString[“SPAppWebUrl”]);

HyperLink1.NavigateUrl = sharepointUrl.AbsoluteUri + “/Lists/TOD”;


Where TOD is a list name.

Now you deploy the apps and click that link then you able to show the list of autohosted apps.
