Microsoft unifies Developer Registration
Published on Wednesday, November 6, 2013 8:00:00 PM UTC in Announcements & Programming
Today Microsoft announced a unified registration experience for Windows Store and Windows Phone developers. If you already are a developer for one of these, you can now submit apps to the respective other store at no additional cost. If you register as a new developer you will have access to both stores for only $19 (or ~$99 for company accounts), and maintenance of both worlds is done with the same Microsoft account. As an extra, if you are already registered for both stores at the moment, you'll receive a code for a free one-year renewal that you can use when your registration is up for renewal.
