Starting in February, devs can sell apps for a minimum $1.49 up to $999. Like other app stores Microsoft will take 30 percent revenue, but if your app is popular and brings over $25,000, the cut is reduced to 20 percent.
In-app transactions have the same split, if they use Microsoft's billing system. Windows Store developer accounts cost $49.
More details were revealed today by the software giant including that purchased apps will be restricted to five Windows 8 PCs. If you have a new device, you will need to remove another authorized user from the mix.
Additionally, "the install experience of Windows 8 apps is designed to be simple, with minimal download details, rather like Microsoft's Metro design," explains Verge. "We don?t believe you should have to stare at a progress bar and count every second as it goes by," notes Microsoft's Jonathan Wang. Users will be sent a notification when the download is complete.
