Publishing to multiple appstores ( countries) ?

agangulyaganguly Posts: 22Member
Hi All,

I have my iphone developer license and a itunes id. I have a very basic question..If I publish to the app store would it be only available for the US app store or to all the stores over the world ? Let me know if that is possible or do I need to publish to the stores one by one. In that case would apple review the same app again for that specific store ?

Thanks.

    everywhere except the moon (but possible at the space station if iphones work up there :)

    I have just released an Austrian Button Accordion with English and German instructions. The thought of Arabian Sheiks playing with it gives me the Willeys!

    nice one :)

    Actually, I hear people saying make sure you publish to stores other than US as the app revenue generation for non-US stores is like 40%..that made me think that whether an app can be made available to the world..

    Anyway..thanks for clearing it.

    actually,
    once you have your game published, it pays to head over to app annie http://appannie.com and search for your game by name.
    This way, you can see who downloaded and where and a lot more.

    Good luck and if you become famous, buy a sailboat and visit Vancouver!!!

    To answer your question Yes you can choose what stores you want your app sold in you can individually select countries or you can tell it sell to all stores.

    It's not my fault I never learned to take responsibility for anything. ;)

    I have a related question...

    Is it available at all stores at the same time or does it takes a day or two until the game is available worldwide?

    I believe all at the same time but I do not know for sure as I have never got on and checked all of the stores at once

    By the look of it, it hits all stores at once but when I check my apps on appannie.com, I see delayed spikes in the middle east and some other places.
    Generally, once you submit your app it will into every iTunes store with your English description and the web page link you supply will be visible to everyone including Brittney Spears and other earthlings :-)
