Mozilla to Introduce a New Mobile Application Marketplace later this Year
With so much demand and attention being brought to Mobile Applications and the Mobile App Industry, another well-known company – Mozilla has recently announced that they plan on introducing their own Mobile Application Store (Mobile App Marketplace) to sell mobile apps to users. The plan is to allow a variety of open-source projects and mobile app developers to register their mobile app name in advance of the opening of the Mozilla Marketplace later this year.
Mozilla also plans on focusing a lot of their attention on Web Apps. Web apps are also known as Web-Centric Mobile Applications and can be installed on a Smartphone or Desktop device. The rise of Mozilla into the Mobile Application World is something which many mobile app developers and mobile application “Experts” will take notice of in the upcoming months. Not only will this drive competition up within various mobile application marketplaces such as Apple’s iTunes Mobile App Marketplace and Google’s Android Mobile App Marketplace but it will also give mobile app developers more avenues to release their mobile apps and make a profit from.
It is unclear how successful the Mozilla Mobile Application development marketplace will be but if history is any indication, we can surely expect this most recent mobile app marketplace to draw a lot of attention once introduced later this year. The mobile application industry is certainly heading in the right direction and the influence of major companies such as Apple for iPhone application development, Google for android application development, now Mozilla will continue to drive the mobile app industry forward for many years to come.
