The goal of the Auto App Mart is to make it easy to find the free and paid software that members here have been developing, downloading and selling for years. People have been asking for this for some time now.
We have a huge technical challenge ahead of in order to make it:
1) easy for developers to upload and sell or give away software
2) easy for everyone else to access and download/pay for software they way
3) identifying trends for developers to know about so that they can create the software that does not exists.
But...I like challenges.
And more importantly, this is about driving innovation. It is too difficult to find the software that people need right now.
So, the Auto App Mart is open for developers to upload. Let me know if you all have thoughts, or opinions etc. This store is for you, so we will build it in the way that you want it. It is to everyone's benefit to come together and have an Auto App Mart that caters to all OSs, needs and price points.
And I can get the attention of the major industry players once i can easily point to where all of the developers and types of software are. Many companies at CES inquired about an easier way to find developers that are o the forums. This store will make that happen as well.
