Android Version of Mega Hit Angry Birds Debuts on GetJar
Full Version Offered for Free, Comes to GetJar First Before Any Other App Store
SAN MATEO, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--GetJar, the world’s second largest mobile apps store, today debuts the full Android version of the highly addictive Angry Birds game on GetJar.com for free. Over the past few months GetJar has become a principle location for Android apps and games as developers continue to add new content at an amazing rate. Angry Birds is just one example of the latest Android apps to hit GetJar first, before any other app store.
"Selecting GetJar as the place to launch our first ever full Android version of Angry Birds was an obvious choice,” said Peter Vesterbacka, Mighty Eagle at Rovio Mobile. “GetJar's global reach and popularity as well as their unique App It! download service ensures that we reach a massive audience of fanatically loyal Angry Birds addicts. The unique App It! link means we can also cross promote our Symbian and Android versions without the need to send folks to multiple places to get their favorite game."
“We’ve seen a significant spike in the submission of Android apps on GetJar, so we are quite pleased that Rovio, developers of the smoking hot game Angry Birds, has come to us to offer the first full Android version of the game to our millions of consumers,” said Patrick Mork, CMO at GetJar. “Android is one of our fastest growing platforms with downloads growing up to 500 percent since April of this year. As developers go cross platform and look for global scale and reach, GetJar’s billion+ downloads and ease of discovery provide the ideal channel for developers to distribute content quickly and easily to consumers. As a result of its reach, GetJar is perfectly positioned to complement Android Market by extending developers distribution to more than 200 countries all over the world.”
