AppEngine Needs an AppStore revisited
Posted by David Chandler on February 1, 2010
I previously proposed that AppEngine needs an AppStore enabling AppEngine developers to easily market, deploy, and bill for applications. This idea got a little traction on the AppEngine mailing list, and readers pointed out that Microsoft already has an application gallery for Azure, and Amazon DevPay is right on the money as a billing solution for AWS apps.
So I was intrigued to discover that some folks are already installing their AppEngine application into multiple customer instances: http://groups.google.com/group/google-appengine/browse_thread/thread/4ce497229c8ff0aa?hl=en#. It’s not the ideal one-click experience, but it’s simple and works today.
Google, are you listening?
