    Topic:  Beyond Mobile App Store Distribution -- Is it a b2b gold mine or b2c fool's gold?

    Since Apple created the first mobile digital distribution platforms in App Store three plus years ago, the App Store model has become an important discovery and distribution mechanism for both consumers and business alike.

    We have invited GetJar, Inc – “their service model” the largest cross-platform, independent app store and not tied to a particular mobile operator or handset manufacturer -- to speak about their service model for App developers, for advertisers and for App Stores that they maintain for brands and operators. It appears in the press, that most developers GetJar has an attractive ROI platform and a fair revenue sharing model. GetJar believes open architechure is the key to ruling the market, because The app store with the largest scalability is most likely to exceed. GetJar has the broadest scalability supporting over 2,300 handsets as opposed to just one like the Apple iPhone.
