Announcing New Features in Windows Marketplace for Mobile

Novità interessanti per quanto riguarda il Windows Marketplace for mobile sono state annunciate ieri.
A parte la possibilità di acquistare direttamente da PC le applicazioni, la cosa decisamente più interessante è l’anti-piracy model.
In sintesi:

Developer portal improvements and stronger anti-piracy protection
We’ve been gathering input on what we can do to improve the developer experience and have made some subtle but important enhancements to the developer portal to enable easier uploading of images, greater insight into account status and several other refinements based on feedback from developers. Today’s update also provides more advanced anti-piracy protection.

Browse and buy applications from the PC
While we’ve heard great feedback on the Marketplace experience on Windows phones, sometimes people just want the benefits of a shopping on a PC. Starting today, Windows phone customers can browse, buy and download applications online at the Windows Marketplace for Mobile site. The selected applications are delivered wirelessly to the customer’s Windows phone and install the next time the Windows Marketplace client runs on the device. This creates another way for customers to easily find and purchase applications and gives developers a whole new level of exposure.

Il documento completo sulle notivtà relative alla security lo trovate qui: anti-piracy whitepaper .
Se passate da WPC, terrò una sessione proprio relativa al Markeplace in cui parlerò anche dell’anti-piracy model.
