Introducing MadeforMediaCenter – The app store for Windows Media Center

Made For Media Center

I want to introduce a project that has been consuming a lot of my time over the last few weeks: MadeforMediaCenter.com. Made for Media Center is an app store for Windows Media Center. Developed with fellow MVP Andrew Cherry of Digital Living Solutions the app store aims to brings together the fantastic selection 3rd party Windows Media Center applications and make them available directly in the 10 foot UI.

As well as being available in the Media Center UI there is also a web based version where you can browse, search and download the applications. The site is in private beta at the moment and we are looking for developers to help test the system and start submitting apps, then we will open a public beta.

The first phase of the rollout will focus on free apps and we will look at paid applications at a later date

Here are some of the features:

  • 10 foot native Windows Media Center UI for searching and installing applications
  • Web based app store with category and full text searching
  • Notifications of application updates
  • Community rating and reviews
  • Featured apps
  • Application publisher accounts with stats
  • Social networking features

The site is open for browsing and you can request a user account, we will be approving accounts over a period of time during the beta stage. You can also follow 4MediaCenter on twitter for updates and news
