Barnes & Noble has announced that they are opening their Nook platform to developers, and are now accepting application submissions from developers, and it looks like they will have a review process to ensure quality apps are available on the platform.
The app review process will be similar to the companies book review process, “app review/acceptance process that will follow the company’s content acceptance policies as with books to ensure the content is appropriate for the Barnes & Noble customer.”
Barnes & Noble is providing qualified developers access to a variety of tools and resources to accelerate the development of their apps including:
Access to “Developer Mode” services, which will enable adb (Android Debugging Bridge) access on NOOK Color to facilitate application development and debugging
Public and private interaction with other developers and NOOK App Developer technical experts
Early access to development tools, APIs, resources and services
An app review/acceptance process that will follow the company’s content acceptance policies as with books to ensure the content is appropriate for the Barnes & Noble customer.
