Openwave Systems said today it will integrate its Amplicity platform with GetJar’s app catalog and publishing interface.
Amplicity was designed to help developers use mobile operator network features to distribute and monetize apps within the browser. The partnership allows developers to write apps once and publish them in a single step across multiple platforms and operators.
Amplicity integrates with GetJar’s publisher interface to create a floating toolbar on the subscriber screen that can be populated with applications without having to download them to the handset.
“In the past developers had been limited by platform restrictions and it often did not make financial sense to write an application multiple times to different platform types,” said Chris Dury, COO at GetJar. “
“The Openwave Amplicity/GetJar solution provides an alternate distribution model for developers to write their apps one time and widely distribute them through GetJar’s apps store and publishing interface and maximize their monetization opportunities across operators.”
