The site's new GetJar Gold is offering Android apps for free that would otherwise cost a few bucks through Google or Amazon.
Mobile application provider GetJar is the latest Apple legal target for using the term "App Store" to describe its mobile application storefront.
App store will use a $25 million funding round to "aggressively expand" its software for Android devices.
The company's Gold program, which started earlier this month, allows customers who sign up free downloads of pay apps.
Carrier gives customers the ability to download GetJar's app store. The service is available on about 50 different phones, according to Reuters.
The largely unknown but actually second-largest mobile app store, behind Apple's behemoth, closes Series B funding.
Everyone knows that Apple has the largest mobile application store in the world, but who is second? A small company called GetJar.
GetJar CEO Iljas Laur lays out why Google exerts more control than you think, and what it means for developers.
Total value of the worldwide market for apps on the go could grow to $17.5 billion in the next three years, GetJar estimates.
It's not just a hit on iOS. The game, which was released to GetJar on Friday, hit 2 million downloads in just two days of availability.
