Over 10 cross platform tools bring quality apps using appbackr appscore™

On the eve of the third Tizen Developer Conference, over 2,000 developers have submitted apps to Tizen through appbackr appscore API integration across 10 cross platform tools. The appbackr appscore integration allows developers of quality apps to receive devices, financial incentives and opportunities to have their apps featured across OEMs, carriers and operating systems.

Developers and partners received over $1 million in financial incentives for successfully validated apps to the Tizen Store and resources to support appscore integration across cross platform partners. “The appscore api enables OEMs, Operating Systems and other partners to effectively reach developers across the landscape where developers create apps,” said Trevor Cornwell, Founder & CEO, appbackr inc.

As developers build their apps on many of the top cross platform tools including GameSalad, developers received monetary and non-monetary incentives based on the score of their app.

Developers and partners received over $1 million in financial incentives for successfully validated apps to the Tizen Store and resources to support appscore integration across cross platform partners. “The appscore api enables OEMs, Operating Systems and other partners to effectively reach developers across the landscape where developers create apps,” Cornwell continued.

“Having a strong portfolio of apps will be a major factor in ensuring Tizen is successful in the mobile phone market. Attracting the best apps on Tizen through multiple channels is key, and this process is aided by cross platform partners who can predict which apps will do well in advance,” said Brian Warner, Manager of the Tizen Project.

“The partnership between GameSalad, Tizen and appbackr has been a great way to identify great apps and incentivize them to bring their apps to a new operating system with the power to reshape the market. appscore allowed us to create a meaningful meritocracy for developers,” said Steve Felter, Founder & CEO, GameSalad.
