LG Application Store

Count LG as yet another phone maker that's in the app store game. Indeed, the company just launched the LG Application Store, which it promises will deliver apps not just to smartphones, but to most of its feature phones as well. In other words, we wouldn't count on this replacing your Android or Windows 7 app market any time soon, but if you do have an LG smartphone, you'll likely have more than just one store to pick from.

There are currently only around 3,000 apps in there, and it's available only in around 23 countries for now. No word whether it'll make it to the States, but most of Europe (including the U.K., Germany, France, Italy, and Spain) and Iran will be covered by the end of the year.
