Game Apps Now Available For The Android Market In Korea


Great news coming out of the Android Developers blog with the announcement of gaming apps finally being made available for our Android brothers and sisters in Korea. Starting today, Korean users can now download and more importantly pay for games in the Android Market using direct carrier billing. I know, I know — we don’t live in Korea. Well, according to Android Developers, Korea has quickly grown to become one of the top countries in the world in Android device activations and if you’re a game developers, tapping into this new market could mean greater app sales.

So, if you’re an Android game developer, make sure to set up your app for distribution in South Korea and set your prices for Korean Won (KRW). And of course, don’t forget to set up your games for Korea by localizing game resources, app descriptions etc.

I've been obsessed with consumer technology for about as long as I can remember, be it video games, photography, or mobile devices. If you can plug it in, I have to own it. Preparing for the day when Android finally becomes self-aware and I get to welcome our new robot overlords.
