To distribute and manage your service app and items through Samsung systems

Develop your service app and its commercial items:

  2. Set up your development environment:

  • Install MonoDevelop in your development environment and use it to write service app scripts.
  • Base your service app on JDK 1.6 or higher.
  1. Register your development service app and its commercial items with the Samsung Galaxy Apps Seller Office.
