Samsung’s mobile and TV app store Samsung Apps has passed 10 Million downloads in Europe, the manufacturer announced today.
Samsung Apps, which was launched in September 2009 in countries including the UK, France, Germany and Italy, is now available in 109 markets worldwide, including 34 countries across Europe.
However, the manufacturer is still some way behind Apple. In January this year, Apple announced that three billion applications had been downloaded for the iPhone and iPod Touch.
Samsung is now planning to drive the creation of more ‘locally-customised applications’. It will also integrate relevant local information, designed to ‘reflect cultural characteristics and provide a more enriching, tailored service’ to users globally.
Samsung said it will continue to drive Samsung Apps by introducing further bada-powered devices, following the Samsung Wave, the first smartphone based on Samsung’s own bada platform.
