Intel's AppUp developer program '.NET apps SDK,' along with 'AppUp IDE Plug-In for Visual Studio 2008' is launched. This plug-in reduces time and effort to integrate the AppUp SDKs and build the MSI needed to submit your app to the store. IDE Plug-in support both C/C++ and .NET SDK for Windows when using VS2008.
This SDK allows .NET developers to take part in growing app ecosystem. By integrating Intel's .NET SDK, for AppUp into their apps, developers can submit their .NET apps for distribution and sales via AppUp Center stores. Intel's AppUp store is focused on netbook devices but plans to expand it to support tablets, smartphones, TV, and other computing devices.
Intel has also announced additional AppUp stores with Dixon electronics in Europe, Croma retail in India, Best Buy and ASUS and more to be announced early next year. Each store will sell netbooks with AppUp pre-installed, opening up AppUp apps to a large distribution of customers.
