The world’s largest alteranative app store, Getjar, has launched a new program that will give users the ability to download premium Android apps for free.
Getjar Gold includes apps priced up to $10 on the Android Market, with new titles added every day. All apps are available for download at no cost, saving consumers potentially hundreds of dollars over time. With 30 million active monthly users, GetJar is set to give away millions of dollars worth of apps.
Titles currently available for free through GetJar Gold include Age of Zombies, TuneIn Radio Pro, Solo, Paper Glider and Splashtop Remote Desktop.
Under the GetJar Gold program developers are compensated, and advertisers enjoy the increased site traffic generated by the program. GetJar pays developers on a per-install basis, and gives them more exposure since free applications are downloaded 10 to 20 times more often than paid apps.
