Getjar to give away millions of mobile games for free
Want some free mobile games for your Android, BlackBerry or Java phone? Now you can thanks to a new program from mobile app store Getjar, who are giving away millions of premium games.
Mobile app store Getjar has announced a new program in partnership with Glu Mobile to give away millions of premium games for free.
GetJar+ makes premium paid content available for free with no ad insertions, registrations, or any other catches. The very same games one would pay for at other app stores will be available on GetJar for free for a limited two-week period to consumers all over the world.
How can GetJar afford to give away games for free?
GetJar is able to do this because of its size as the number two app store in the world with over 1 billion downloads to date across 200 countries which generates nearly 100million downloads/month. Only this level of scale can allow this new model to work – it’s the cinema versus a TV network or a music store versus a radio station. GetJar is the TV network or the radio station that doesn’t have to rely on making consumers paying for the ticket or CD. GetJar doesn’t need to rely on the revenue from the sale of apps – instead it relies on the sponsored app placements on its site, which allows it to then buy premium content from publishers and distribute this content to consumers for free.
Where can I get these popular games for free?
Initially, these free premium games will be found on GetJar.com’s homepage in the “Recommended” section and includes some of Glu’s most successful licensed and original IP such as: Brain Genius 2, Stranded: Mysteries of Time, Build-a-lot, and Race Driver Grid.
The games will be available across several major mobile platforms including Android, Blackberry and Java.
