App Hub is the new single destination for both Windows Phone and Xbox Live indie developers. Windows Phone 7 app submission process on App Hub is now open to all registered Windows Phone Marketplace developers.
The biggest change with App Hub is that with your existing annual subscription you can now submit apps and games for both the WPM and Xbox LIVE Marketplace. As a developer whose account existed prior to this integration you may need to take a few extra steps to ensure access. If you experience difficulties logging into App Hub for the first time, try these four steps:
- Go to xbox.com
- Sign in using your Marketplace developer credentials
- Return to App Hub and select My dashboard (Windows Phone 7 or profile). You may need to select this option twice (the first time could give the same behavior, but the second time should work).
You can find a full walkthrough of the application submission process here. Once submitted, it typically takes 3-5 business days for your app to be certified and then published.
