IT company Movile announced the launch of an unified app marketplace that aims to connect and improve relationships between distribution parties. The company is trying to connect global app developers with Latin America’s growing smartphone market. This new platform will be called Movile Marketplace.
The company notes that it has already previously preloaded applications on Samsung, LG, Sony, Huawei as well as Apple mobile devices. The submitted apps are curated to ensure they meet quality selection criteria. To bolster this new project, Movile has partnered with app distribution and analytics platform, appAttach.
“Movile’s relationships with OEMs and carriers in Latin America are a perfect complement to our powerful app distribution and analytics platform,” said appAttach CEO James DePoy.
This move is an important one as Latin America is said to be the fourth biggest smartphone market by 2017.
“It’s a natural fit for Movile to help bring together OEMs, carriers and developers,” said Movile head of US operations Eduardo Henrique. “Movile is invested in making the Latin American mobile economy take off, and with this step we help ease the burden on everyone involved, and build upon our first success.”
