Samsung Application Store is live

leave a comment »

Like announced earlier, Samsung just launched its Application Store. The store has been in beta for 7 months in the UK and Germany and is now available in the UK, France and Italy. More countries will be added soon.

At first sight, the store differs a lot from the original beta version. See an overview of the beta version here. The biggest differences with the beta store are outlined below.


The store offers free and paid applications for Windows Mobile. Currently 300 app are available that were approved by Samsung for the launch. There are also Symbian applications available in the store, but there is no mobile client yet for Symbian phones to download these apps.

The content is divided in 9 different categories. Eight of them are familiar from other stores, but the Samsung Application Store also has a special app category where users can download and purchase content from Handmark, which develops both mobile content and app stores for parties like Samsung.

Mobile access

The Samsung Application Store now has a mobile client for the OMNIA phone. Users can download this Windows Mobile client from the application store website. Downloading and purchasing of application is at this time only possible from the mobile client. The website only provides an overview of top applications, like Google Android Market also does.

Support to download and purchase applications from the website will be added in a later stage. The mobile client is not pre-installed on Samsung phones yet, but this might come soon.

Billing and revenue share

Consumers that want to purchase applications pay with credit card. Samsung says that operator billing, so that a consumer can buy applications with just one click and the amount will appear on the phone bill, will be introduced later.

Developers get a revenue share of 70% and can sign up here to get their content in the store.
