Enjoy on T store 4.0
T store 4.0 is now available
Dear All Developers,
Korea's representative traditional holiday, the Lunar New Year's day, is tomorrow. In the lunar calendar, this year is called the 'year of the blue sheep'. As the color blue means 'progressiveness, enthusiasm' in Asian countries, so we also wish to greet this 'progressive and enthusiastic' year and promise to provide all you guys with more news and blog posts, and now we would like to report about the brand-new 4.0 version of T store, the well-known 3rd party App store in Korea.
[ See that new flat icon! ]
faster and lighter, T store 4.0
In line with the modern trend, we reorganized the app inside and out, starting from the icon to the inner UI/UX
Especially for the previous version, there were just too many tabs at the top, so it was difficult to navigate even with left and right flickering. However, for this new 4.0 version, we have reduced the number of tabs to 3 and included various eye-catching "Event Cards" and "Featuring Cards" for each tab.
[ There are only Ranking / Featured / Event tab in new version]
Upgrade of the Featuring function
On the new 4.0 version, we expose the new 'Featuring' on the News tab, which is the first page customers log-on into. The 'Featuring Card' is the first page customers view, and is able to be used freely, for marketing or promotion, through SNS and push event by 'Sharing' option.
Change in the 'Ranking' logic
There's also a big change in the ranking system; the New Ranking!
In the T store 4.0, the 'New' games/apps ranking will be exposed at the very top of the ranking page.
The arrangement will be done from top to bottom, New > Top grossing apps> Best free apps > Best paid apps. Are you planning to launch a new game or app? Try for 'Best New app' ranking of T store. Your product will be exposed to the customers at the very top of the page.
Reinforcement of the Videos and Icons on the 'Detailed page'
Do you have Youtube video clips for promotional use? If yes, we strongly recommend you to upload your video in T store developer center. T store 4.0 exposes the Youtube videos on the very top of your product detail page.
In addition, the design of the icon of the app became very-very important in this new version. The icon of the app will be exposed at the center of the detail page, and is also used for various needs such as the loading animation or featuring cards. For that reason, I would like you, developers, upload the new high-resolution icon that catches the eye! with transparent background.
Additional easy-to-use functions
This isn't all. There are various functions all over the new T store 4.0 and it is easy to use.
For example, it is easy for all users to manage their purchase history, app updates and even lock to prevent underage children's in-app purchase within just single clicks. Moreover, the performance is evidently improved.
Personally, I especially like the new [Purchase history management] function the most.
The in-app purchase history and subscription list, which was hard to flip through in the previous version, was improved to make it more convenient to see it all at once
The release schedule?
We now looked into the changed functions of the T store 4.0.
We remade the T store from top to bottom, based on the feedback from customers and data analysis about the last, 3.x version. We're now able too greet you with this new version, in 2015. I hope for your attention and affection of the new 4.0 version of T store. *blush*
The release date of the 4.0 version was already distributed to 8 devices including the SAMSUNG Galaxy S5 (SM-G900S) at the present, in February. We plan to distribute the new version to almost all the smart phones in Korea until March. The new year of 2015! We, the T store will come to visit your smartphones as if it were a new years present~ Coming Soon!
