GetJar said today that the Facebook mobile app has been downloaded by more than 100 million people, making Facebook the most downloaded app on a single app store.
Using GetJar’s App It link, users are able to download the app which gives them a shortcut to access Facebook’s mobile wbesite with one click from their phone.
App It is a link to a particular app that can be placed anywhere and allows users to download that app to their phone in one tap regardless of the users’ phone make or model. Once a publisher has uploaded an app or mobile site to GetJar, the App It link is automatically created and can be placed anywhere the publisher wants. When tapped, the link sends the consumer to the publisher’s page on GetJar which detects the device and provides them with the right app for that phone.
“With more than 500 million Facebook users around the world, people are increasingly looking to stay connected using their mobile device,” said Patrick Mork, chief marketing officer for GetJaR.
“Global brands are realizing that although applications provide users with a rich and engaging experience, to make app distribution easy, they need to provide consumers with a single destination from which to get their apps instead of sending them off to multiple stores depending the type of handset they might have.”
