Why can't find my app in the marketplace on Windows Phone 8 devices? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I can find my app in the Marketplace on Windows Phone 7.5, but can not find it on Windows Phone 8, its developing OS is 7.1 and it was tested on a Windows Phone 8 device already.

    Is there any difference between the Marketplace on two OS devices?That's really make me confused...

    Is there something i should have noticed when submitted the app?

  • The app must have been built in the latest SDK to support 8.0 distribution. If you built it in the latest SDK and are still having distribution issues I suggest you open a support request.

  • That is simply wrong.

    All my old apps that were built on the old SDK show just fine on the marketplace for my Lumia 920. Just if you submit a new app NOW it will not show. Older apps have no problem to be distributed to Windows Phone 8.0, so the new SDK obviously is not required.

    You guys fucked up the distribution process for new Windows 7.1 apps to Windows Phone 8, the only question I have is really if it was out of negligence or on purpose?


    Welcome, reality.
