The LG Application Store features apps developed for the Windows Mobile platform. In this beta stage the store supports two LG WiMo handsets, the KS20 and GM730. Applications range across a number of fields, from productivity tools, navigation, healthcare apps and games.

In beta stage, the LG store is available through desktop browsers. Apps can be downloaded to a PC before being side-loaded to a handset using Microsoft ActivSync, though future handset releases, like the GM730, will feature a direct link to the store with the option to download directly to the handset.

In support of this store front, LG also has a site set up for software developers to submit apps for LG handsets other than its Windows Mobile offerings. Developers are encouraged to develop Java-based apps or widgets specific to LG's proprietary phone platform.
