The Symbian Foundation announced a new application-publishing platform, called Horizon, which is intended to help developers, big and small, to publish their Symbian applications on the software market.
Under this scheme the Symbian Foundation will take care of certifying the application through Symbian Signed and will promote it to the partner application stores. All that for free while the author maintains full ownership of the application and will receive 100% of its store generated income. Among the stores likely to participate in this program is of course Nokia’s Ovi Store.
If you are a software developer currently “releasing” unsigned applications you should definitely have a look at this offering.
