If Apple has Apple App Store and Google has Google Play, now Mozilla is steaming up its very own app market that is set to move on beta testing in the next few weeks! Mozilla marketplace, a repository for browser-based, any mobile platform apps is almost here to stay!
Mozilla marketplace was first announced during the Mobile World Congress last February, inviting all interested developers to submit their apps in the market. Until now, the market is still open for submissions. Developers who will submit their app will get the opportunity to reserve their app name and a chance to be featured in the official launching of the marketplace.
During the beta testing, developers can take advantage of their submitted apps to:
- Test their app with a committed group of early adopters;
- Build an early fan base and gain popularity and
- Target tech savvy consumers with their app.
Along with the consumer launch of the marketplace later this year, Mozilla will also release the marketplace source code to the general public to allow developers create their own marketplace and offer their apps in their own website.
