Oct. 12, 2010 SDF GetJar Bruce Jones

On October 12, 2010 in Palo Alto at Nokia, the SDForum Mobile SIG hosted Bruce Jones of GetJar’s presentation “Beyond Mobile App Store Distribution — Is it a b2b gold mine or b2c fool’s gold?” GetJar is the largest cross platform app store with a scalable open architecture, independent of any carrier or device manufacturer. With a billion downloads annually, Jones says it has “an attractive ROI platform and a fair revenue sharing model. GetJar has the broadest scalability supporting over 2,300 handsets as opposed to just one like the Apple iPhone.” Revenue is made from app companies with pay per download to consumer or white label app storefronts. GetJar’s favorite bay tech area partner is www.deviceanywhere.com.
