GetJar Gold gives away premium Android apps

Independent app store GetJar has introduced a new scheme called GetJar Gold. It enables users to download premium applications they’d have to pay up to $10 for on other app stores. Unlike other promotional offers, new premium apps are added to GetJar Gold every day and remain on the store.

GetJar Gold compensates developers by paying them ‘per installation’, while generating revenue through advertising on the GetJar Gold pages.

Ilja Laurs, CEO and Founder of GetJar, said “We are able to develop programs like GetJar Gold because of our open and free business model. We regret that at this time we cannot extend our program to iPhone users, as Apple runs a closed ecosystem that does not allow for competing app distributors like GetJar. Unfortunately, iPhone users will have to continue paying for the very same apps that their Android counterparts enjoy for free.”

GetJar has seen over 2 billion downloads and currently distributes more than 150,000 mobile applications.
