Glenn Kiladis, general manager of FreeMyApps, commented, “Rewards-based marketing is a foundation of building truly great B2C businesses, particularly in the dynamic, consumer-focused app ecosystem.”
Following up on its very obvious success in the iOS world – where users drove 1,000 per cent growth in 2012, Fiksu has just released a beta version of its FreeMyApps app for Android users. Potential testers should go to the FreeMyApps site here to download the program and side load it onto their Android handset. The full version is expected out on Google Play later in December .
