If you’re located anywhere in the UK or France, chances are your mobile service provider is Orange. The company’s got some good news for you, by way of its own Orange App Shop which is currently available as an over-the-air update feature right now.Â But pretty soon, the Orange App Shop will be available through a one-click process from your mobile phone’s homescreen.
So, what does the Orange App Shop have up on its sleeves? Dig these – more than 5,000 applications, games, ringtones and wallpapers. Alright, I know 5000 is nothing compared to the iPhone’s tons of applications, but hey this is Orange in the UK so 5,000 apps are enough to get you excited, right?
Aside from these apps, the Orange App Shop which is currently available on various handsets carried by Orange will also provide other services including Orange TV, Orange Games and Orange Maps. What’s good about the Orange App Shop is the fact that anything in it can be purchased and downloaded through an Orange customer’s mobile bill. This is definitely an added bonus for Orange customers who will use the App Shop.
The Orange App Shop is up and running right now. You have three options to access it – through a web portal, WAP portal and the Orange App Shop client which will be pushed to your phone over-the-air.
To bring in more developers and their applications, Orange has also partnered with several app developers through the Orange Partner Programme.
