With this strategy the Redmond company hopes to increase the number of applications available for Windows 8 and Windows Phone which is currently unable to compete with iOS and Android.

Microsoft is offering $ 100  per application developers to program for Windows operating systems. To access this assistance must reside in the United States and be an adult. Moreover such aid is limited in time and will last only until June 30, 2013 so it is only valid for almost three months.

So far Microsoft did not pay directly for enrolling in your store applications for their operating systems although indirectly funded the development of this.

The company used to test the application and see if it can be viable and can be sued by customers give some money to the developers to continue and put on the market. However this system of patronage is not agile.

Although Microsoft had previously paid for the development of Windows and operating system never done by applications.

This change in strategy may be produced because Windows needs a broader catalog of applications to compete with online stores such as Android or Apple.

But this change is not the only thing that is holding the Redmond company to try to get your Windows Phone has a wider acceptance and become more popular. Last week Microsoft released two video pieces to try to explain to developers how to write applications for Windows on your online store.

It seems that Microsoft has finally realized that without a good deal of applications an operating system has no future today. However, we have to see if it is late and if a period of only three months is sufficient to trigger the release of apps. BlackBerry which went adrift and resurgence is completely renovated with BB 10 was aware of this reality and the development of software for ecosystem was a priority.

The Canadian company gave test terminals in 2012 with which they could begin developing the system. In addition, RIM announced a succulent compensation plan for programmers. Alongside these initiatives, RIM promised to pay $ 100 per application developers that exceeded the test of compatibility with BlackBerry 10 in its debut.

In addition the Canadian company announced that $ 10,000 to give developers a paid application, with the condition that the app would generate a profit of at least $ 1,000 in the first year so once amortized investment the developer would benefit multiplied by 10 instantly.

BlackBerry has earmarked an investment of approximately $ 100 million to encourage the development of applications for BlackBerry 10.
