GetJar is an apps store with an open market approach: it delivers applications to telephones across all major platforms. Second only to Apple’s apps store in size, GetJar offers more than 70,000 mobile apps to consumers around the world. GetJar will figure out what kind of phone and platform you have, and allow you to download an application in just one click.
Why it’s cool:
Everyone wants an easy place to buy apps–no matter what kind of phone they have. GetJar eliminates platform-ism by selling “appsolutely everything” (and, oh, how their punny tagline makes us swoon!) The site allows consumers the opportunity to compare their choices and find the app that’s best for them.
