Has anyone yet published an app on Huawei AppGallery? What could you tell about it, is it worth?
The Huawei App Market is on rank 4 in China with a market share of 9%, I think it's a good chance to publish an app on Android in China - I will give it a try..
FYI, for registration you will need a DUNS number. They could provide you that number for $80, but if you have a company you might already have this number (what I have). You could search for your DUNS number here:
WoW! $80? I have done the DUNS for two companies in the EU and it was free.
Back to Huawei AppGallery, when I was thinking about publishing to the samsung store (galaxy s4) it needed to implement their sdk, to be able to submit.
Yes you should check if you already have a DUNS before paying $80 🙂
Well, so far as I can see at the moment you could use the existing apk and it should work. But if you want to use Huawei inapp purchases you need to integrate their sdk and haven't found an ane for that yet. I will try and tell you if the submission worked..
I received a mail from them stating that for the paid apps, they require a quick integration with Huawei Mobile services. For free apps there's no technical implementation though.
Hey guys are you interested in an ANE to publish Android apps in China with in-app purchases? Please give a post, so maybe Distriqt will provide such an ANE.
I have added one app in the store, but I am not getting good enough results to worth the trouble. Since January 1st I had 182 downloads in Huawei Store. In the same period, I had 11.5k in Play Store.
I think you should be promoted by them, did you get a email invitation from Huawei like Boggatap? Is it a free or paid app?
It is a free app with IAP. I don't think that i got an email to promote my app or anything.
How did you integrate the HMS SDK, do you have an ANE?
A fellow dev in my team did one but I don't see this working for us.
Ok maybe it will come one day, I think it's worth a try regarding on the potential of the Chinese market. Would it be possible that you share the ANE?
The potential of Chinese market was what I also thought and tried. Unfortunately I can't share the company ANE. However I have several AS3 libs and code processed to open source, so I can add the ANE too.
Yes that would be awesome, please tell me when you're ready.
For me, Huawei sent an email that they will promote my app when I publish it. If it makes a boost I would be glad to donate for your ANE 🙂
