Microsoft unifies Windows Store developer account and Phone Store

While rumors about a reconciliation of applications of Windows 8 and Windows Phone shops are going well, Microsoft has a decisive step in the appeal to developers. Now, one has enough to touch the two shops, a rate largely lowered.

Lately, many rumors that a reconciliation of mobile platforms at Microsoft, including Windows Phone and Windows RT. A reconciliation which would primarily through application stores, which eventually merge to offer only single source third-party software. It would obviously be a big step for the company as well as for developers, who could then target both worlds with a single code, while obviously planning to adapt to different screen sizes.

While rumors about a reconciliation of applications of Windows 8 and Windows Phone shops are going well, Microsoft has a decisive step in the appeal to developers. Now, one has enough to touch the two shops, a rate largely lowered.

The first step towards such a unification, if it should happen one day, just be done by Microsoft with an important announcement. There is indeed more developers separate accounts for Windows and Windows Phone. Now, there is no longer a single account with the combined benefits of the two other. This means that a developer can create two types of applications to send then to their respective shops for validation.

A single subscription to 19 $ for independent  

The other big change is that independent developers will just have to pay 19 dollars a year for the new merged account. Companies will pay for their 99 $ annually for the same account, but the whole course is cheaper than before.

What, however, if you are already a subscriber? All depends. If you have a subscription to one of the two shops, you can now publish applications for both. Renewal, when it presents itself, then cost 19 dollars. If you subscribe to both formulas, Microsoft will send an email with a code to unlock a free year subscription when the renewal should be done.

It is obvious that a unified account at 19 $ annually only, Microsoft has attracted a number of independent developers who would not have considered its platforms. It is also a great way to motivate those already familiar environment to focus on the other, many technologies are common. Finally, if the firm is to merge its two shops in the course of next year, the third-party publishers are already equipped to cope.
