Windows Phone 7 App Submission Now Open!!

I received the newsletter from Windows Marketplace saying that WP7 app submission is open to all registered Windows Phone Marketplace developers. The good thing about it is that you can use one account to submit your apps/games for both the Windows Phone Marketplace and the Xbox LIVE Marketplace. The registration fee is $99 per year.

When I submitted my app, I faced some problems to login but the following steps helped me to solve my problems.

  • Go to xbox.com
  • Sign in using your Marketplace developer credentials
  • Review and accept the Xbox Live Terms of Use agreement
  • Return to App Hub and select My dashboard (Windows Phone 7 or profile). You may need to select this option twice (the first time could give the same behavior, but the second time should work).

  1. I’m from Romania and I cannot sign up to the Windows Phone Marketplace. What should I do? I really want to develop apps for Windows Phone 7.

  2. Sorry to hear that. I have three suggestions for you..

    1. You can migrate to the country that are in supported list. If you have closed family in supported country then you should use their addresses.

    2. This is similar to #1. You can try getting the partnership with someone who are currently staying in supported country.

    3. You can try this trick. http://wmpoweruser.com/windows-phone-7-usershow-to-access-marketplace-from-countries-without-support/ I don’t recommend it but if you are desperate then you may try. :)
