HONG KONG-March 14, 2012-MEIZU announces today that its Flyme Store passes 100 million downloads through the millions of MEIZU smartphones in China, Hong Kong, and beyond. The 100 millionth app downloaded was Mobile QQ by Zeying Mao (Flyme ID: mao330) from Tianjin. As the user who downloaded the 100 millionth app on Flyme Store, Zeying will receive 10,000 yuan in credit for use on the Flyme Store.
"Before launching M9 in 2011, the Flyme Store had around 10 million downloads. One year later, we broke through the 100 million barrier. Following the release of the MX, the rate of new downloads is accelerating even more." said Eddy Lin, Flyme Store Product Manager. "We want to create a better environment for our developers. Previously, we gave away 10 million yuan in Flyme Store credits to our users when we launched paid apps, working hard to cultivate the acceptance of paid apps in China."
Launched in November 2009, the Flyme Store was designed to give MEIZU smartphone users greater choice and higher quality mobile apps. MEIZU offers developers its own SDK, through which developers can create apps fully compatible with MEIZU hardware and the Flyme UI which users around the world have come to love. Currently, the Flyme Store features over 10,000 downloads organized in 13 categories; including games, lifestyle, multimedia, transportation and the newly launched themes.
