Microsoft has announced that they are now supporting six new markets with their App Hub. These are: Argentina, China, Indonesia, Malaysia, Peru and the Philippines.
This means that app developers can now submit their apps catering to these new markets.
The company said that these apps would go through an extra verification to ensure that they meet the laws and regulations of these individual markets: China, Indonesia and Malaysia. China of course is a big market with major restrictions on internet access.
Given the Marketplace is not yet available for customers in these markets and the addition of new requirements, we’re opening the submission process early to give those of you interested in distribution to these markets a head start on certification. We’re viewing this as an early access period and you can expect the certification process to take a little longer during this time period.
