Samsung announced that new apps (submited after july 1) of Samsung store are required to use Samsung SDK. Samsung SDK supports development for resources of samsung devices. What do you think about it? Samsung apps wants to have apps for samsung devices only?

Can we use Google Play Store app on Samsung devices after 1 July.
Speaking from experience, today being the 1st, yes you can.
Well, yes samsung have recently updated its application policy, So, from now Samsung apps is going to require the Samsung SDK for the app development ! From this I am getting a feel that this samsung is trying to show others that when it comes to the market they can control anything but I would say they can’t get … because still samsung store is far away from being … so, I don’t think they can create any major impact with … !!
