GetJar, which touts itself as the world’s largest free app store, announced reaching an important milestone for its GetJar Gold program. The company has given away $1 million worth of free “premium apps” to its consumers since launching the program, with downloads of free apps increasing 5000% over the same period.
New apps are added to the GetJar Gold catalog daily and developers joining the program include BBC Worldwide (Top Gear), Gamelion (Doodle Fit) and Konami (Krazy Kart Racing). In addition, other great apps and games in the Gold Program include Imperio, Handy Games Guns ‘n’ Glory, Herocraft’s Farm Frenzy and TouchType’s SwiftKey X.
We’ve nothing but good words to say about GetJar’s efforts to help both publishers/developers and end-users. On one hand, developers get to reach users they wouldn’t reach otherwise (and get some money from in-app ads), while users get to download some great apps free of charge. It’s a win-win!
