Tizen Store Expands It’s Service Coverage to 222 Countries

The Tizen Store, as the name suggests, is the Tizen Application Store for developers to publish their free and paid for Tizen apps. In April 2015, we saw the store expand it’s coverage to include 182 countries, which was mainly for FREE apps, but we saw this as setting the foundation for providing paid for apps further down the road.
Today, the Tizen Store has expanded its coverage to include a further 41 countries, bringing the total covered to 222. Developers can now target all these additional countries with their apps and games, and even branch out by creating localised content, which has its own Unique Selling Proposition (USP).

So far we have seen the release of the Samsung Z1, Z2 and Z3 Tizen-based smartphones and we hope to see more being released during 2017. Samsung has been targeting more the budget / mid-tier mobile phone range at the moment, but we do hope to see more powerful devices making their way to us in 2017, like the Samsung Z5 SM-Z510FD, but there are no official launch dates at the moment.
Have you got a free or paid app that you want to distribute on the Tizen Store?
