Nokia Announces Two New Developer Programs For Windows Phone Developers

Nokia today announced two exciting new programs for Windows Phone developers.

1)  Nokia Ad Exchange (NAX) :

NAX is a new – and free – way for developers to quickly and easily monetise their apps using in-app advertising, via our partnership with inneractive.

By providing access to the top ad networks in the world via a single SDK, developers will have access to more than 120 advertising networks worldwide. This means that app users will more likely see content they’re interested in – and click the ad.

2) Nokia Premium Developer Program (NPDP) :

NPDP is focused on high performance developers on Windows Phone platform.

Signing up costs $99 USD for an annual membership, and this membership gives you tools and services valued at up to $1,500 USD.

As with any membership, you’ll want to know what you’re signing up for before you do, right? Here’s what you get:

  • One year membership in Microsoft Windows Phone Dev Center – membership is essential if you plan to submit apps to the Windows Phone Store.
  • One license to Telerik RadControls for Windows Phone – these are designed to shorten your app’s time to market and help your app rank higher in the Windows Phone Store.
  • 1 million API calls per calendar month with Buddy‘s cloud API offering – Buddy provides you with an easy-to-use cloud back end for Windows Phone apps, featuring APIs that deliver common app scenarios as a service.
  • Two Nokia tech support tickets – Tickets are used to report issues or ask questions about certain topics related to app development for Nokia Lumia devices.
