Handmark Continues Leadership in Android Development, Launches Six New Apps
KANSAS CITY, MO (USA) and LONDON, UK - (October 29, 2009) - Handmark®, a world-leading creator and distributor of mobile applications and services, has several new initiatives planned to continue its leadership as a key developer for Android-based devices. Today the company announced six new applications, including New Oxford American Dictionary and Thesaurus, New Oxford Dictionary of English, New Oxford Dictionary of Spanish, Astraware Sudoku, Astraware Solitaire and Astraware Boardgames for Android customers, now available via www.handmark.com and the Android Market.
Top brands and mobile providers continue to look to Handmark as a key partner for Android application development and management. Handmark also distributes a wide range of mobile titles through its direct channels, in addition to managing other mobile stores for major carriers and device manufactures. These games and applications add to a rapidly growing catalogue of top-selling titles Handmark offers for Android-based smartphones.
"We see Android as one of the clear winners going forward,” said Evan Conway, EVP of Marketing. “Our expertise not only with the development of quality applications, but also our unique ability to widely distribute and effectively monetize mobile applications make us one of the clear partners for helping brands and other content providers reach the Android audience.”
The applications announced today build on the success of Express News, one of the first applications developed by Handmark for Android-based phones. The news application has been recognized as one of the most popular apps delivering more than 300 news feeds in eight languages. A reviewer from the popular website Android Guys said: “For the past few months, my morning news source has been replaced by…Express News.”
