Has anybody published a game at Samsung Appstore? I tried but the system won't let my APK. I use Intel XDK. Any luck yet? Suggestions? Thanks!
Samsung's support team replied to me:
Regarding your inquiry, we would like to inform you that all application submitted to Samsung after July 1st are all categorized as Galaxy Special since they all developed using Samsung SDK. Hence, if your seller type is a developer, you are eligible to select a set of categories as below.
(Main Category) > (Sub Category)
- Galaxy Specials > Multi Window
- Galaxy Specials > Data Sharing
- Galaxy Specials > Multiplayer Games
- Galaxy Specials > S Pen
- Galaxy Specials > Home Appliances
- Galaxy Specials > Other
If you are not sure which category to use, we would like to recommend you to check which Samsung SDK was used to build the binary.
For your information, there are 17 kinds of Samsung SDKs as below:
Accessory SDK, Chord SDK, Gesture SDK, Image Filter SDK, Look SDK, Media Control SDK, Motion SDK, MultiWindow SDK, Pass SDK, Pen SDK, Professional Audio SDK, Remote Sensor SDK, Visual View, GroupPlay SDK, Tizen SDK for Wearable, S Health SDK and Smart Connectivity SDK
For example, if you used GroupPlay SDK to build a game, then it would be appropriate to select 'Galaxy Specials > Multiplayer Games'.
If the application does not fall into any of these categories, please select 'Galaxy Specials > other'.
