Firefox Opens Up App Store For Android Users

Mozilla team has been working on Firefox Marketplace for quite some time, accepting app submissions ever since February 2012. Now, it has finally opened up the app store for Android users and developers, seeking their feedback.

The access to the Marketplace has been granted in the test build of Aurora browser for Android that Mozilla rolled out this Thursday. The test build is primarily meant for developers and early adopters.

Mozilla is “hoping that Aurora users, our awesome early adopters, will go experience the Firefox Marketplace on their Android phones and let us know what they think. Our goal is to collect as much real-life feedback as possible about the Marketplace’s design, usability, performance, reliability, and content.”

For now, the Marketplace features a fairly limited number of apps, including Twitter. However, the primary purpose of opening up the app store to users is to get an idea of how the user interface and overall user experience is.

The official blog post from Mozilla further read, “We created the Firefox Marketplace to allow developers to build, distribute and monetize rich, immersive apps that use web technologies like HTML, JavaScript and CSS. It’s still early days for Firefox Marketplace Aurora — we’ll be adding payments, ratings, reviews and more soon — stay tuned.”

This should be great news for developers who have been wanting to reach out to the Firefox users. With the advent of a Marketplace of its own, Mozilla will be able to actively market the apps from such developers who, in turn, can monetize their content effectively.
