Microsoft looks like it has taken a hint from developers and announced that it will not be charging developers for updates to software applications that are submitted to the Windows Marketplace. It was initially reported that developers would have to pay to even update their applications, which caused a lot of negative responses towards Microsoft. Developers obviously weren’t happy, and users were worried that developers would just not update their apps in order to save costs, and thus bugs would not be fixed. Microsoft also announced that 25 popular developers will be supporting and releasing applications for the Windows Marketplace when it’s launched. Applications will be available from FaceBook, AP Mobile, MySpace, Accuweather, CNBC, EA Mobile, SPB, Pandora, Sling Media, and more. From Uberphones.
