With Google Wave still in it’s infancy, Google is already looking to find ways to monetize it. On Monday Google confirmed that they are working on an iPhone/Android like application store where Google Wave users can go to buy add ons for their Google Wave account. This will also make it possible for developers to earn money for their effort’s.
A Wave marketplace could stock in-Wave applications, along with desktop applications, browser extensions and a world of devices, from laptops, phones, tablets and more with built in Wave support. Independent software developers have already built and tested successful applications for the Wave platform and Google is hoping this will be as big if not bigger than Apples iPhone application software.
Just like the iPhone app store, the implementation of a Wave app store and the opportunity to make money will turn Google Wave into a developer feeding frenzy.
