Angry Birds comes to Motorola’s Latin America and Chinese SHOP4APPS store
Thanks to its Let’s break the servers launch on GetJar last week, we all know about Rovio’s release of Angry Birds for Android devices. The game became almost simultaneously available on the main Android Market.
However, there’s a third app store where the birds are now flapping.
Little known in the west, Motorola’s SHOP4APPS, which is live in Argentina, Brazil, China and Mexico, has also taken delivery of the free game.
Oh great, another app store, developers might be thinking but it’s a solution that makes sense considering Motorola’s status as one of the leading Android OEMs, as well as the growing fragmentation in the market.
SHOP4APPS handles this by pre-matching content to your device and user profile.
It supports PayPal and Alipay (China only) payment options, enabling content security with its My Locker feature, which stores games in an online account. This makes switching phones as easy as possible.
Developers can find out more about SHOP4APPS via Motorola’s developers page. （source:pocketgamer）
