Microsoft's long overdue app store, Windows Marketplace for Mobile, is finally open to developers, after some controversy over Microsoft's potentially-seen-as-gauging fees for app submitting.
Terms and guidelines drafted so far include previously reported conditions such as developers keeping 70% of sales for apps. It will cost US$99 to submit five apps, and $99 for each subsequent app. Fortunately, updates to software can now be submitted free of charge.
The Marketplace will house apps from big corps like EA and Facebook as well as indies, all for Microsoft's upcoming sort-of-new operating system, Windows Mobile 6.5, meant to launch this month.
