Certification
With our certification, we ensure that your apps are successful on the Samsung device ecosystem. The Certification team will provide assistance to resolve issues that may occur during the Galaxy Apps Store certification process, such as issues related to app submission and rejection, developer and content registration, monetization validation, app store deployment advice, and expedited certification.
Pre-Launch Validation
Pre-launch validation is an important step in preparing your app for release. It’s vital that its performance be verified and its compatibility with the Samsung ecosystem be established. Validation services are provided by a Samsung team experienced in app and content testing and evaluation. Pre-launch validation is performed using a set of standard test cases, as well as app-specific test cases provided by the developer.
