I just got an email from Samsungs Seller office saying:

1. When submitting new app in Seller Office, you are required to submit app that was developed using Samsung SDK.

Samsung SDKs are the tools that help sellers to make apps using Samsung device-specialized functions such as S Pen, Finger Print, Gesture, Motion and more. Please visit SAMSUNG DEVELOPERS (http://developer.samsung.com/) to download Samsung SDKs and obtain additional information.

In case of existing apps registered in Seller Office, the apps can be updated without using Samsung SDK.

2. Samsung Seller membership will be terminated for those who registered before February 20, 2014 (GMT +09:00), but have not submitted any apps to Samsung Apps Seller Office. (Membership termination date : June 30, 201

Does this mean we can no longer submit AIR based apps???

MetaHaze I emailed the Samsung support team and was told that AIR based apps will no longer be accepted after July 1. And it will be impossible to submit any apps without using the samsung SDK.

For what it’s worth, we have submitted three apps to Samsung, and the combined total of the three for the last month is about half of the downloads for just the worst of the three in iTunes. So, no great loss to not submit to Samsung.

It will affect friends of mine though, who are doing apps in conjunction with Samsung themselves. I imagine they will need to continue to submit to the Samsung store!

It's not loss. Anyone published to Samsung Market? I don't know anyone. What exactly you will loss? few dollars per year?

Also as I understand - you can publish Adobe Air. But you must use in-app-puchase from Samsung IAP SDK | SAMSUNG Developers only for samsung.

I have my SparkChess in all major stores. By far, Samsung's store is the lowest performer, lower than Blackberry's AppWorld for Playbook - and that's a discontinued device. So that's the least of my worries.

Now what about Windows Store?

While it sucks to see the support for this dropping from Samsung, it is quite a waste of time. Their App Store has given me very poor performance and I only look at it as a great free testing environment.

Their testing team found a lot of things that were very useful to make my apps better. Sad to see that go!

We were contacted by 100%Indie to post out game on Samsung....I thought this could be a great opportunity.....my app passed all their tests without any mods but sales were dismal....even with promotion from 100%Indie.  This is no loss whatsoever from my perspective.

As someone else mentioned, it would be great to be able to publish to Windows Store.
