Certification process of geolocked application? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello.

    I wonder if the certification process for an application that is geoblocked for a certain country (same as the selected market for the application) differs in any way than an application that is available on all markets? Do the testers have the possibility to fake geolocations while testing? Even if they do some content might be IP-blocked as well.

    My searches on the subject have yielded nothing.

    For Win8 applications there is a field "Notes to tester" in which this information could be passed to the tester but I can not find anything similar for WP submissions.

  • On windows phone you to have a "Notes to tester" section, when you upload the xap there is a collapsed menu where you can include this details.

    The geolacated apps are processed just like the global ones, I know plenty of devs that made apps for 1 country only and had to give and fake data to pass certification.
