This is a little late news because Navisworks Exchange Store has opened for some weeks :-) We have seen a bunch of downloading with the published Apps so far. I believe some developers have already known about it and are eager to submit their applications soon.
If you are not familiar with Autodesk Exchange Apps you might want to visit Exchange Store to get an idea of all the current offerings and possibilities for you. The stores serve all customer types whether they need plug-ins, standalone applications, content libraries, utilities, training material or other products that can help them in their daily work.
Exchange Apps has proven to be the most effective way for app publishers to get exposure to Autodesk customers. It is a safe and easy way for customers to find the tools they need for their work. Exchange Apps is growing – there are more than 1,000 apps and in 2013 there were over a million unique visitors to Exchange Apps, and 334,000 unique downloads. It is a global opportunity and community with stores in 14 languages. Autodesk is implementing several features to support the sale of apps – volume sales, term/subscription based sales, web services, and purchase orders.
The Knowledge Base includes the requirements of each product and the detail tutorial on submission process.
