Windows Store

on December 13, 2011 | Microsoft | Comments (0)

Microsoft has been working on their Windows Store which will be compatible with Windows 7 and 8, x86 machines.

The revenue split has been revealed which compromises of the following:

  1. initial revenue split of 70/30 to the developer
  2. once the app sells more than $25,000 the split will go to 80/20 to the developer

Initially the Windows Store will be free applications, then paid applications will be released which can range from a couple dollars to a couple hundred dollars.

The Windows Store is going to be localised into 100 languages and the Beta release is due in February 2012.

Here is a video from the Microsoft team discussing the new Windows Store:

I’m really looking forward to this as the Windows Store could potentially be the largest ‘app store’ we see and bring real competition to Apple and Google in this space.
