Happy Cinco de Mayo! Today Motorola announced that they are expanding their SHOP4APPS store to Latin America.
SHOP4APPS allows developers an additional channel to distribute Android applications. However, unlike the Android Market, apps are tested before they are published. It also allows carriers to highlight applications specific to a region or language. In my opinion, this improves the experience for the consumer by helping to localize their mobile life.
From Motorola (Google Translated):
With SHOP4APPS, shop Motorola’s Android applications, it is easy to buy and download applications to handsets from Motorola powered by Android. Through this novel, the experience complements Motorola Android Market ™ to facilitate the discovery of applications for mobile phones with the Android operating system in the language of the consumer. For developers, the store represents another important channel to market their applications.
Developers interested in submitting applications should access the SHOP4APPS:
