FreeMyApps Now Available on Android

We have some exciting news to share – after growing more than 1,000 percent since its December 2011 launch for iOS, Fiksu’s FreeMyApps discovery platform is now available on Android.

It's been an exciting first year as we built out and nurtured the FreeMyApps platform, which has quickly become the go-to destination for eager consumers interested in discovering new apps. In fact, the FreeMyApps platform has more than 750,000 monthly active users.

The beta version of the FreeMyApps Android app can now be downloaded from for both smartphones and tablets, and the full version will debut on Google Play later this month. The Android FreeMyApps community is expected to ramp up quickly as the hundreds of thousands of current FreeMyApps users on iPhones, iPads and iPod Touches will be able to do cross-platform social sharing with their friends on Android devices.

FreeMyApps offers users iTunes and GooglePlay gift cards for discovering and engaging with apps and games, which then pumps money back into the app ecosystem through in-app purchases and the purchasing of paid apps. Users can also select gift cards from, Groupon, Fandango, Hulu+ and more, and will soon be able to redeem their credits to donate to their favorite charities.

FreeMyApps has also forged strong relationships with app developers and publishers, launching more than 120 titles this year alone for 30 of the top 50 grossing game publishers in the iTunes Store. Across all publishers, FreeMyApps has launched more than 500 titles in its first year. 


For app publishers, the FreeMyApps platform includes many benefits, including social media amplification. Apps are promoted to a FreeMyApps Twitter community of 100,000 and across Facebook, where the service has a reach of more than 80,000, enabling app publishers to extend their reach beyond the FreeMyApps community.


In Q1 of 2013, FreeMyApps will launch an enhanced version of the platform to assist app publishers achieve a deeper level of engagement with their users by encouraging and rewarding users to explore new apps more deeply or re-engage with existing apps.
