Microsoft’s Windows Marketplace Gets Detailed

Posted on March 11, 2009. Filed under: Microsoft, Windows | Tags: , , |



Microsoft is just about ready to launch its own app store. And we have hot details for all those developers interested in the future Windows Marketplace. Microsoft will charge developers $99 to be accepted and $99 extra for every application they submit after 2009. This year devs will have the chance to submit five apps for free. Microsoft will charge that fees in order to “run a rigorous certification process to ensure that the end user’s experience is optimal, and that the device and network resources aren’t used in a malicious way.”

After your apps get approve, Microsoft will get 30% off any revenue generated by them. That’s the same percentage Apple and Google also charge. Windows Marketplace will arrive once Windows Mobile 6.5 gets launched in Q4 2009 but you’ll be able to register as a developer in Spring and start submitting your apps this Summer. What do you think? Anxious?
