Commenting on the launch, Mr. Tarun Malik, Director of Media Solutions Center-South West Asia, Samsung Electronics, said “We are literally turning the standard Appstore model on its head – moving away from a model of listing millions of Apps where most go unnoticed to exclusive and curated applications for Indian consumers. By introducing an assorted selection of best Apps across key consumer interest categories like Ecommerce, Travel, Food, Media, Utility Services etc, Samsung has simplified the consumer experience and enhanced discoverability of relevant apps. Samsung GALAXY Appstore will increase app adoption momentum in India by offering flexibility of payment through mobiles, developer partnerships and focus on marquee apps.”

To support the developer and partner community, Samsung has reduced the certification time for uploading an application on the GALAXY App store by three and half days allowing developers and partners to introduce their apps quickly in the market.
