Opera launched a Cross Platform Mobile App Store, which is a repository of Apps across various Phone Platforms. Currently the supported platforms are – Android, Blackberry, Palm, Symbian and Windows Mobile. iOS is conspicuous by absence, but probably there may be links soon back to the Apple Store.
I think it is pretty cool for the following reasons:
- It is a Web App. Pretty easy to use on any device with a Browser and supported Platform, nothing to install
- Can build an Ecosystem of Developers to market their Apps, across various Platforms
- Centralized Billing for Apps on multiple platforms – usually helpful if you own multiple devices on Android, Blackberry etc.
- Huge scope for tracking the Statistics on Apps usage and popularity across platforms
I can’t do much with the Store, as I just have an iPhone and nothing else. But this is surely an App Store to keep our eyes on.
Thanks for Information.
Yes useful for developers they have single market place for all there app.
