We’re pleased to start off the New Year with an update to App Hub that will enable you to distribute apps and games to even more customers in more markets. App Hub now allows you to submit apps for distribution in 6 new markets; Argentina, China, Indonesia, Malaysia, Peru and the Philippines. Although you will be able to now select these markets for distribution in App Hub, the Windows Phone Marketplace is not yet available to customers in these markets. We will provide more information about availability of the Marketplace for customers in these markets in a future post.
You should be aware that applications submitted to three of these six new markets – China, Indonesia and Malaysia – will be subject to additional requirements due to local laws, regulations or norms. You can find information on these additional requirements in the Application Certification Requirements.
Given the Marketplace is not yet available for customers in these markets and the addition of new requirements, we’re opening the submission process early to give those of you interested in distribution to these markets a head start on certification. We’re viewing this as an early access period and you can expect the certification process to take a little longer during this time period.
As usual, when submitting either an update or a new application in App Hub, you can choose to publish the app “worldwide” to the full set of 41 markets to you can select specific markets. When you select worldwide, the additional requirements of the new markets apply. As a result, if your application fails certification, you will need to either update and resubmit your app to meet all worldwide requirements, or de-select the markets where your application will not meet requirements.
Also included in this release are a number of minor enhancements and bug fixes, including improvements that will streamline the payout process and enhance reporting to provide data like crash counts and exceptions to assist in improving your apps. These are a result of your feedback and we’ll continue to provide other improvements in each release.
We’re pleased to start the New Year off by expanding markets to which you can submit apps for distribution, and will provide more information on the consumer experiences for those markets when we are ready to go live.
Little of-topic - Any word about pubCenter for Windows Phone and México ? On July 20 2011 you said "by end of year" - windowsteamblog.com/.../windows-phone-developers-get-new-app-hub-features-mango-app-submission-just-one-month-away.aspx
Btw, the link in this post returns an error - Server Error in '/' Application.
Nice to see these improvements!
One small thing. I am getting a "resource not found" error while attempting to the follow the App Hub forum post link.
Also, I thought crash counts/exceptions already existed in the previous version of AppHub (I've seen it there since August). What's new about this in the new release?
Here's the link to the App Hub forum post: forums.create.msdn.com/.../97923.aspx
Great to see the Marketplace expanding! Should make reaching 100k apps that much faster :)
Great, I can finally submit an app to my native coutry.... wait a sec.. why can't sign up App Hub as someone from Malaysia yet? That's not quite "getting a Headstart I certification".. 😞
still no turkey.. super! it's not nice to be a developer in a country which will be probably added the last in the world to the list of supported countries of marketplace.
great! i will be able to develop, sell and buy apps Made in the Philippines! A very welcome announcement. Lest it shall also give more locals a reason to embrace WP in our market. Good Job WP Team!
Cmon, where is Latvia and whole EU? Why we can't submit our apps directly without any f///ng "helpers"?
...sorry, i mean why devs from whole EU still can't register as devs and publish their apps without any strange tricks?
Hi Todd, about 2 months ago representatives of Microsoft Venezuela said that Venezuela was going to be added to the developer markets in a couple of weeks. I suppose this was that announcement in which it was going to happen but, clearly not. Do you by any chance know anything about this? Is Venezuela in the road map soon?
good for these countries still waiting for Middle East Support =(
keep up the good work
Why can't you just launch a "Rest of the World" marketplace like Windows 8 Store plans to do right from the start?
This is so interesting! Marketplace in China is huge. Can't wait to translate my app into Chinese, somehow :)
Has WP7 actually launched in China yet?
Any plans of expand to Thailand?
Please bring Marketplace, XBox Live and Zune pass to MENAP regional markets along with the corresponding langauges support! These markets are flooded with iPhones and driods... waiting for Microsoft to make a move!
waw.. still no Romania ? Not even all European Union members are supported. And you guys have a LOT of developers from Romania on your teams. It's a shame :(
How come W8 app store is going to be available in 231 countries from day one, and on the other hand, it seams i will NEVER be able to access Marketplace in Croatia? to make matters worse, i will HAVE to do a hard reset once it does, since my "main" live account on the phone is just a dummy.
It's a very small market, Croatia, but why exactly is Marketplace so slow to expand and will i EVER see it in Croatia?
.i'm wondering. cos i'm already using windows phone, i was forced to choose singapore as my home market as it was the closest to my country (malaysia). will i have the option to switch to Malaysia when the market is finally open here?
No, you will have to do a hard reset and loose ALL OF YOUR DATA (game stats, SMS messages, apps and app settings..). You will have to install every app and game again, transfer pictures and music again.. The whole package.
That's why I made a dummy live account registered to US so that once (or if?) marketplace comes to my country, i can log in with my real live account that i actually use. I just did not know that it's going to take that long.
It's because they don't allow to change a region/country on a live account that has been used to access marketplace. Why, i have no idea.
Sounds good, but when will the developers from Romania, be able to upload their apps via Marketplace ?
Waiting for marketplace in Ukraine.
waiting for supporting Vietnam :(
Hey there Mr. Brix. I realize this is off topic, but I was wondering if you can email me. I was looking for another way to contact you, but I couldn't find one and the Windows App Hub Support said I should contact you and gave me the link to this article because you are a developer evangelist.
Rest of the world(Romania, Turkey, Ukraine etc.) should wait for "Republic of Nauru" to see their country supported in apphub :)
i think the European Commision should ban Microsoft Marketplace from EU untill they support all countries in EU
maybe people should send some petitions to the EU`s commissar Neelie.Kroes@ec.europa.eu
One thing that amazes me is that WP7 is the third phone OS on the market, with much smaller app count than iPhone or Android, and Microsoft closes it for developers who are not from the approved countries. We are left with hyper-expensive global partners that stop short of charging us for visiting their page. If I have to pay global partner GBP 25.00 for unlocking the phone, GBP 30.00 for submitting the app, GBP 6.00 for software update, plus a certain percentage for admin costs, when all I want is to give my app for free to the world, then, my good Microsoft, you have a problem. It's not hard to figure out the problem. You are not allowing me to be competitive in the market! If someone gives an app for free and I have to charge 0.99, I lose. On top of that in order for me to reach break-even I need to sell many apps, and there is no guarantee for that if I'm going to have to charge people. I bought WP7 as soon as it hit the market with an intent to develop apps for it. Year and something, all I have is apps sitting on my PC running on the emulator. You have to understand that many developers will lose patience and move over to competing platforms. Yes, they are bigger markets, and yes, it would be hard to get my app noticed, but at least over there I have one foot through the door. For WP7 I don't want to give 25 Great British Pounds for unlocking my phone. In total, the entire package requires that I pay 60 GBP.
Really, do something for the rest of us. Spare us from the misery of global partners. Understand that you have a loyal base of developers in other countries.
awaiting WP7 in Romania.. so get on the job! :D
