Free App Hub account, without Dreamspark
In order to get a Microsoft App Hub account, you can either pay 100 USD or, if you are a student, use a Dreamspark account to get in for free. If you neither want to pay the 100 dollars, and are no longer a student, then we can offer you a free account.
If you would like to publish an app on the Windows Phone 7 App hub without an account, then simply send us the XAP file, along with the required graphics and a description, and we will publish it on your behalf. Email us at email@example.com with your app.
Graphics required are:
Application icon included in package (62×62 PNG)
Application tile image included in package (173×173 PNG)
Small tile (99×99 PNG)
Medium tile (173×173 PNG – normally this would be the application tile image)
Large tile (200×200 PNG)
Background artwork (1000×800 PNG – this is optional)
One or more application screenshots (480×800 PNG)
We do not offer outpayments, but your app will be published as a paid app. If you want your app to be published as a free app, then contact us for a price. Updates to apps will be charged at a reasonable rate.
During the approval process, if your app fails, then you will be given one attempt to fix it. If you fail a second time, then a small charge will be requested before we submit subsequent times. A PDF will be sent to you describing the fault.
