Finally, Microsoft has decided to open up the Windows Store (formerly known as Metro Apps) to all developers. Previously, access is limited but in anticipation for the October 26 launch of Windows 8, the software giant is now allowing all kinds of developers whether individuals or companies to create and submit their apps for Windows 8. Not only that, Microsoft has also offered support for 82 more markets. This means more apps are expected to come in and hopefully, be released next month.
I’m a bit concerned about this step. Why only now? It’s only a little less than two months before launch. Did developers actually respond to their previous call for app submissions? I’m sure a number did but perhaps not enough to fill the Windows Store. Hmmm….
I hope more apps will be submitted this time. Microsoft deserves our support for Windows 8.
