Optus Mobile launches App Store partner portal

Optus Mobile has announced details of their App Store ecosystem, offering application developers the opportunity to showcase their apps through the Optus Partner Connect portal.

Optus MobileOptus Partner Connect developer portal opens up potential revenue streams for application developers as well as making mobile apps easy to reach for users who may not be tied to the Apple iPhone App store ecosystem. Optus pre and post-paid mobile customers will be able to purchase applications created by independent developers through the Optus Consumer and Business Application Stores accessible via the web and directly from mobile.

Partner Connect provides a simple way for developers to upload applications to the Optus Application Store which supports most major operating systems such as Blackberry, Android, Windows, Symbian Series 40 & 60 and high end Java.

Mark Mulder, Optus General Manager Content and Portals said, “Optus is proud to be supporting local developers and we are extremely pleased to be making it easier for local developers to produce this content for a significant range of operating systems and platforms.

“If you have a great idea and the know-how, Partner Connect provides an opportunity to deliver your application direct to the Optus customer base; a first in Australia and something we’re incredibly proud of,” Mr. Mulder said.

Optus Mobile customers will benefit from the additional app store content, with Optus providing a convenient single billing system for all applications – meaning any application download appears on the customer’s bill, eliminating the need for entering credit card details over the net.
