App name reservation issue on WP8 Store RRS feed

  • Question

  • An app just appeared on the WP8 Store that is using the same name that I've reserved! Is this allowed? I thought that the WP8 Store does not allow this.

  • Hello Mike,

    The Windows Phone Marketplace does not support reserved app names the same way the Windows Store allows you to reserve names.

    If you have a registered trademark for your app name you should submit a content infringement claim.

  • I believe, the app name can be reserved only in Windows Store not Windows Phone store.
