EULA for my Windows Store app RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I am developing a Windows Store app, which is using some third party library.

    For a desktop application, we used to specify those library details in EULA.

    Where i have to specify those library details for my new Window Store app?

    Thanks,

  • Most of the apps I've seen so far add this information to Settings/About flyout

  • From your last reply, it appears that you would like the user to explicitly agree/disagree to the terms of your third party libraries.  If so, there are two options, I think.

    1. You can put this info in the store submission under "Additional License Terms" and state that by downloading/installing this software that the user agrees to these additional terms (which include the third party terms).

    or

    2. Have a page or panel that appears when the app is first run stating these terms and requiring the user to agree/disagree before the application can continue.

    I would also use the About panel to list the third party libraries.

  • "EverNote" app is displaying the EULA information in "Settings" -> "Legal" option.
