Developers in 20 Additional Countries Can Now Sell Apps, Another 18 Over Next Few Weeks

The Android Developers team announced today that developers from 20 new countries can sell paid apps on the Android Market and an additional 18 countries will be added after that over the next few weeks.  This confirms our report from last week, but to our surprise is more than we expected.  Also, users from 32 countries will now be able to purchase apps.  That’s growth baby…

We have been hard at work on this and it is my pleasure to announce that effective today, developers from 20 more countries can now sell paid apps on Android Market. Additionally, over the next 2 weeks, users in 18 additional countries will be able to purchase paid apps from Android Market.

Support for paid application sales is now expanded to developers in 29 countries, with today’s additions of Argentina, Australia, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, Denmark, Finland, Hong Kong, Ireland, Israel, Mexico, New Zealand, Norway, Portugal, Russia, Singapore, South Korea, Sweden, Switzerland and Taiwan.

In addition, Android Market users from 32 countries will be able to buy apps…

A global Android world that seems to be expanding by the minute.  Awesome.

    Yes, LauncherPro+ on the Market! By the way, it's crazy that they just added Canada now, since they've been selling Android phones on Rogers since the G1/Magic.

    but when will purchasing through PayPal be available? :'(

  • Cory

    now Google just needs to give app creators the ability to force close apps with their own apps so i dont have to do it one by one. I liked the Droid 100x better when i could press one button and close everything

      What do you mean by this? Do you mean you want a quit button in every app? That is doable, but quite often, hitting the back button will close an app unless it is running a background service. If you want apps to close, use the back button and not the home button.

    hopefully we'll see more premium versions of apps like launcher pro plus become more accessible

    Make sure you have your currency converter apps ready…lol.. unless you know how to converter all those different exchange rates in your head…lol..

    • Flyinion

      I think it tells you what the expected cost is before you click to actually purchase. Well, it did when I just bought Root Explorer a few minutes ago which is listed in British pounds. So I'd assume they will do this for other currency as well. It would be a good idea to have a converter anyway though just so you have an idea right up front whether you're willing to pay for something or not.

  • Puck3511

    • Flyinion

        Once it's there, hopefully he'll send out unlock codes to those of us who purchased plus already. It's pretty dang likely because he seems like an awesome enough guy to do that :D

          Even if he doesn’t, LauncherPro Plus is good enough and priced right to pay for twice! :)

          I love how it brings Motoblur into focus.
