Today Microsoft blogged about process for submitting apps to Windows Store in Windows 8. Similar to Windows Phone, every Metro Style app will be certified by Microsoft before getting published in the Windows Store for the public. Microsoft had the following goals while designing this process for developers,
- Encourage developers to visit the Store developer portal before they start coding
- Help developers comply with the Store technical requirements
- Reduce concepts and repetition by pulling information directly from the app package
As usual its a detailed long post. Visit Building Windows 8 blog for more info.
