GetJar, Bitstream tie-up to offer BOLT users access to over 70,000 Apps
TT Bureau |  |  06 Aug 2010

Software firm, Bitstream which owns mobile browser, BOLT and App Stores service provider, GetJar announced a new partnership offering BOLT users immediate access to GetJar’s entire library of 70,000+ free mobile applications.

"Fundamentally BOLT is about getting the most utility possible from your mobile phone, a mission we share with GetJar,” said Anna Magliocco-Chagnon, CEO of Bitstream. “This agreement also brings an important new revenue opportunity for BOLT as any revenue generated through the download of sponsored premium applications is split between the two companies. We partnered with GetJar because are they are the most experienced, ‘open’ application catalog working across multiple platforms such as Java ME, BlackBerry OS, Symbian – any device and platform used by our customers.”

GetJar charges developers for premium placement in their catalog. When those applications are downloaded via BOLT, GetJar and Bitstream will split the revenue. Popular apps such as Facebook Mobile, Yahoo!, Shazam, and CNN can be downloaded directly via the BOLT browser.

“With millions of users from every corner of the globe able to use BOLT to download applications, this agreement represents an important new channel for distributing GetJar’s applications,” said Bill Scott, vice president of sales and business development at GetJar. “It’s exciting to see Web browsing technology meeting the overwhelming demand for apps. App Catalogue Express is designed to make it quick and easy for our partners to seamlessly launch a pre-populated app store across all major devices and platforms such as Android, BlackBerry, Windows Mobile, among others.” Bitstream joins other leading companies already using GetJar’s flexible, open app store approach including Sprint, Rogers, LG Corp., 3UK, The Carphone Warehouse and Virgin Mobile France. GetJar offers both branded and white label solutions.
