I on behalf of whole Pakistan ask Microsoft to open the marketplace in Pakistan as well. We have great developers here who have developed a bundle of applications on windows phone 7. Currently we use YallaApps.com, that is a help, but we really want to get direct with Microsoft apphub, the reason is the benefits we miss that are not on YallaApps.com. Like advertising, we need to make an account on microsoft to get the advertising in our apps and track them, on YallaApps, we are not able to do that.
There are obvious discussable patterns of payments which can be MoneyBookers, WesternUnion, Bank Transactions and more. Thousands of developers are missing Microsoft Marketplace to be here in Pakistan. We here work on windows Azure, windows phone 7, Html 5, Silverlight, WPF, Sharepoint, Dynamics GP, Navision, and what not. I do not see, after so many years yet, Microsoft does not feel to come to our country. This might be a new way to go for them, a new market.
Like if Pakistani’s who own windows phone 7 can buy and sell apps in there own currency, i believe its a sparkling market for future, the trend has already changed here in Pakistan.
I would really like to have the good news that Microsoft marketplace is about to come in Pakistan as well.
