GetJar passes 1 billion application downloads

As Apple announced 5 billion downloads for its App Store, its closest rival was breaking through the 1 billion app download barrier. GetJar which launched in March 2004, is the first cross-platform application store to exceed one billion downloads.

Ilja Laurs, GetJar's CEO and founder, said "We’re delighted to have reached this milestone in mobile app history. As a team, we’re dedicated to driving the app market forward through an open approach. We’ve supported over 60,000 apps from developers across all major platforms, including Android, Blackberry, Windows Mobile and Symbian and our open philosophy has been integral to our continued growth and the development within the industry. We’re looking forward to the next billion downloads."

The most downloaded app on GetJar is Facebook’s mobile site shortcut, which has been downloaded more than 61 million times. The Fonecast also has a free mobile shortcut on GetJar; click here to add it to your phone.
