Windows Phone 7 devs: Want to reach the 19 new countries with your app? Make sure to add them!

Publish your Apps and Games in new Consumer Markets
You can now distribute your apps and games to consumers in 19 new countries, in addition to the 16 existing consumer markets. The new consumer markets are:

  • Brazil
  • Chile
  • Colombia
  • Czech Republic
  • Denmark
  • Finland
  • Greece
  • Hungary
  • India
  • Japan
  • Netherlands
  • Norway
  • Poland
  • Portugal
  • Russia
  • South Africa
  • South Korea
  • Sweden
  • Taiwan

Go to your App Hub dashboard and publish your apps to the new consumer markets now!

Please mind that for apps that were previously published with ‘Worldwide distribution’, you will need to select the new consumer markets by clicking on the ‘Edit catalog details’ on the new app ‘Lifecycle’ tab. Without this step, previously published apps with ‘Worldwide distribution’ will not be available for distribution in Marketplace in the new consumer markets.

Game developers please wait just a little longer. The App Hub is adding functionality to support game ratings and allowing developers to upload the associated rating certificates. Please be ready to publish your games to new Mango Marketplace markets in late August. We will be in touch shortly with more information.
