For people who are having a difficult time making the switch from iOS to Android solely because of the unavailability of some apps, good news has just been announced! Thanks to the Appitalism App Concierge, users no longer need to go through the Android Market to download the apps they have purchased on Apple.
‘By extending our proprietary App Concierge technology, more than 250,000 additional Android apps can now be downloaded directly from Appitalism.com,’ said Simon Buckingham, Appitalism CEO. ‘Since App Concierge now supports both Apple App Store and Google Android Market apps from one destination, our customers who have, for example, an Android smartphone and an iPad tablet, will find Appitalism an even more convenient place to find and get apps for all their devices from one destination.’
In order to use the app, users simply have to browse the Android Market apps available on Appitalism.com. When they have chosen a particular app they wish to download, the Appitalism App Concierge will automatically launch an automated-background process that will retrieve the app from the site. Once the app has finished downloading, the user receives an SMS message containing the direct installation link for the download app. Another option is to directly install the app from the Appitalism App Cloud.
Apart from serving as a unified app store, App Concierge has also been designed as a stand-alone product that provides licensing to third parties. This includes mobile network operators and brands that wish to make their apps available to both Android and iOS devices.
As of this writing, Appitalism is the only store which has centralized and enabled their customers to manage their apps from both the Android Market and Apple App Store. Because of this, fragmented apps are no longer necessary.
Exclusive feature now supports app downloads from both Google Android Market and the Apple App Store
January 20th2012. Appitalism has extended its exclusive App Concierge feature for paid Apple apps to also support free Android Market apps. From today, more than 250,000 additional free Android Market apps can be downloaded seamlessly fromAppitalism.com, eliminating the need to transfer the Appitalism user over to the Android Market to complete their purchases. Customers simply browse Android Market apps on Appitalism.com and, once selected, the Appitalism App Concierge automatically retrieves those apps from the Android Market as a fully-automated background process.
The customer then receives an SMS text message with a direct installation link for the apps on their Android device or they can install the apps directly from their Appitalism App Cloud.
Simon Buckingham, CEO of Appitalism said, “By extending our proprietary App Concierge technology, more than 250,000 additional Android apps can now be downloaded directly from Appitalism.com.
Since App Concierge now supports both Apple App Store and Google Android Market apps from one destination, our customers who have, for example, an Android smartphone and an iPad tablet, will find Appitalism an even more convenient place to find and get apps for all their devices from one destination.”
Appitalism is the only store that allows consumers to manage all their Android Market and Apple App Store apps centrally from one place, putting an end to fragmented islands of apps, segregated by platform types.
The beta launch of the exclusive App Concierge for Android feature follows the success of the App Concierge for Apple devices that was originally launched in March 2011.
In addition to being integrated as a feature into Appitalism.com, App Concierge has been designed as a stand-alone product for licensing to other third parties such as mobile network operators and brands who distribute apps to Apple and Android devices and want their customers to have the option to utilize their content portals and billing relationships for Android and Apple apps.
Appitalism.com combines a social community with an online store, enabling consumers to discover, discuss and download digital media from a catalogue of over ten million premium apps, songs, books, games and videos compatible with a broad range of digital devices including smartphones, tablets, PCs and eBook readers.
