Samsung Developer Program


This section provides links to resources to help you freely or commercially distribute standalone and companion applications for Samsung Gear S and S2 wearable devices (Gear apps), via the Samsung Galaxy Apps Store.

Gear apps that are distributed via the Galaxy Apps Store must integrate Samsung Account (SA), which is a two-way portal for your Samsung Account users to thousands of SA-integrated applications AND for those SA users to access your SA-integrated application.  Independently, Gear apps can integrate Rich Notification in order to provide their users with advanced notification features (bite-size updates, advanced action buttons, and personalization and branding).

Samsung Seller Office is the online portal to register your Gear apps for distribution certification, and then manage your application's distribution, sales, promotions, and financial accounting.
