Just looking for a few things to help you build an app faster?
Quick question about the developer movement. For the 4th criteria of an applicable app it mentions: Target one (1) or more of the following Windows Phone platforms: (i) 7.5; (ii) 7.8; and/or (iii) 8
Is still still applicable for windows 8 apps?
If you are asking whether you have to have a matching windows phone app for your Windows 8 app, the answer is no. You can either publish a Windows 8 app, or a windows phone app that targets one of the Windows Phone platforms listed to get rewards through Developer Movement. The final challenge (draw) is specifically for Windows 8 apps.
How long should I wait after submitting applications in the dashboard of the movement of developers?
In fact, I've posted since last week, but so far, no change.
Please where can I find application GUID ? Is it the code whish compose url ?
For example, if url is : apps.microsoft.com/.../f45c13fd-7f1d-4e46-897d-3d58a6a02134
Application GUID == f45c13fd-7f1d-4e46-897d-3d58a6a02134 ?
I also whant to know about capture... Is the capture page store where the application appears ?
I think what you are asking, is "If I have submitted my app to developer movement, how long will it take for me to find out fi I received my points so I can claim rewards".
I don't have a hard answer but it may be a couple of weeks because we have had a lot of apps come in during the past few weeks and each app has to be opened and reviewed by a member of the Developer Movement team, so we do have a bit of a backlog right now. I would say if you don't hear within 2 weeks, reach out to ask the status.
Hope that helps,
You've got it, that collection of letters and numbers after the URL is your GUID.
Please, what is the deadline for claiming a prize ?
In fact, I still have applications being cerfication ...
If I do it after June 15, do I lose my points?
According to the website under FAQ - Points and Reward Redemption "The last day to submit points to collect your rewards is on June 15, 2013." If you open the terms and conditions it says "Points are reduced to zero (0) at 11:59:59 pm ET on June 26, 2013"
Hope that helps
