Developer Offers for Nokia X: Frequently Asked Questions


General questions

What will this cost me?

Nothing! These offers would usually cost money. But since our partners and we all think it would be great if you created apps for the Nokia Store, we’ve agreed to provide these services and subscriptions to you for free once validated.

However if you really want to you can always purchase the offers directly from our partner sites, or redeem DVLUP points to get them from the rewards catalog.

I am in a country where DVLUP is not live. Can I still get Developer Offers for Nokia X?

As we use DVLUP to provide the offers and issue the challenges, we can only have these offers where DVLUP is active.

However, DVLUP is growing, so keep an eye on the country list.

How do I get validated for Developer Offers for Nokia X?

Once you filled out and sent us your submission form, we will check the two other apps you will give us the URLs for.

The applications must:

  • Have more than 5 positive reviews
  • Have a minimum level of quality (at least 3 stars for each application)
  • Be an app other than a game
  • Not be already on the Nokia Store for Nokia X platform

If your apps fit these criteria, we’ll give you the tokens, and you are also more than welcome to enter the related DVLUP challenges and also get DVLUP XP!

Do I have to create the same app for the Nokia Store that I have in the other application store(s)?
No, you can create a completely fresh application if you prefer. However many developers like to have the same application across several platforms. It’s up to you!
