This store would provide applications online for Windows 8 computers
Microsoft has said that it would launch Windows Store to provide applications online for Windows 8 computers.
Developers can submit their apps for free, but otherwise the minimum price is $1.49. Microsoft will take a 30% per cent the sales. However, if an app generates more than $20,000, Microsoft will reduce its commission to 20%.
Windows Store partner program manager Ted Dworkin said in a blog post that ensuring the visibility of apps and the efficiency and fluidity of app discovery became the fundamental building block of their store design.
The new Windows Store can be accessed only net year when Windows 8 is officially launched, but developers can access the Windows Store in a beta release, if they’ve installed the Windows 8 Developer Preview version of the new OS, which is a free downloadable.
