A few days ago I blogged about the development of a 3rd party appstore.


There has been a lot of really positive feedback on it, which encourages me to keep developing it. There has been a lot of changes in the last few days, a lot of them 'under the hood', but also some on the UI.


You can visit the appstore (under development) here: http://vcampusappstore.cloudapp.net


You will get a SSL certifcation error, please ignore and continue. The reason for this is that the SSL certificate is self signed (testcert issued by hydralisk).I will have to buy a nice SSL certificate in the near future]


Please login as guest (button on the lower right). Please note that if you order , request information, or use the contact option, you are sending emails to me [:).


Any feedback is greatly appreciated!


Currently, I'm at version 0.1.4.
