Reduced Certification Times for Apps Very Soon, As Microsoft Goal
Reduced Certification Times for Developers’ Apps to Be Fully Introduced by Microsoft
Reduced certification times for apps for Windows Phone is one of the goals for Microsoft. That is welcome news for developers. Microsoft’s work on reduced certification times is going on. There is redesigning of the work flow. The result is the reduction of certification periods for Windows Phone apps. That is wonderful for developers. That is great for users who are waiting for more handy apps for daily convenience and entertainment.
App developers for Windows Phone are busy. After apps are rolled out, developers provide feedback to Microsoft. One of their most frequent suggestions is reduced certification times. Microsoft work in that direction has been going on for a couple of weeks. The results so far have been rewarding for apps that have passed the redesigned procedure and reduced certification times. They have a turnaround time of a fraction of a day, and even an hour.
There has been information about other Microsoft goals. Microsoft may enable Android apps for the Windows Phone OS. The rumor is supported by news about Nokia. It is going to bring out an Android device at MWC 2014. Developers working on apps have more and more fields to offer apps to.
The reduced certification times are not the only bonus of the Microsoft goal. There is also another improvement. The improvement is in the delivery and presentation of certification results. Now they will not be delivered as PDF attachments. Developers will receive email notifications. These notifications will include the complete results of the App Review. So developers will get the full results that are in the Dev Center Dashboard. The results will be easier to read now. The ease of reading is due to the updating of the format. The changes developed by Microsoft spell good future for developers.
