Microsoft has revealed that its Marketplace app store is now open for registration. This means that potential developers now have the opportunity to become a developer for Windows Mobile and, more importantly, to get their teeth stuck into the much discussed and forthcoming version 6.5.
According the Blogs MSDN website, the registration process will provide you with "links to key documentation for distributing apps through Windows Marketplace for Mobile."
Registration on the site also allows you to stay informed with the latest development tools on the Windows Mobile Developer Center on MSDN.
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.
