Don’t have a developer account yet? Start here.
A developer account lets you publish free and paid apps to the Store. It gives you data to track your growth, keeps you in the loop from the Dev Center, and gives you control over in-app advertising. If you’re publishing apps as a business, a company account gives you access to additional capabilities.
