Microsoft has this week launched their Windows Phone Marketplace in 22 new countries. Making it even easier for users worldwide to be able to make purchases from the online Windows Phone app store.
As well as launching in new areas across the world Microsoft also revealed that it is planning to make a number of major changes to its Windows Marketplace to clean-up spam and improve the search facility, Microsoft explains after the jump.
“To help address that, this week we’ve started reviewing the keywords that developers assign to their apps and removing ones that aren’t relevant. You can learn more about this cleanup effort in Todd Brix’s post on the developer blog. It will take us at least several weeks to complete our review, but our expectation is that you should start seeing more relevant search results when it’s done, particularly for popular apps.”
The Windows Phone Marketplace is now available in Bulgaria, Costa Rica, Croatia, Estonia, Iceland, Latvia, Lithuania, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Turkey, Ukraine, Venezuela, UAE, Bahrain, Iraq, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Kazakhstan, Israel, Thailand, and Vietnam.
