LG Mobile App Store to Opens in 23 Additional Markets

In a move that could only mean expansion and business growth, LG plans to further its business by commencing operations in 23 more countries. Having launched its mobile applications store recently, the company said it is now keen on expanding its presence in the 23 countries.

Places They have Opened

Locations being considered are countries such as South Africa, India and Australia amongst a host of other 20 states the South Korean company is targeting. Currently, LG’s store boasts more than 3000 available apps that can be used by feature phones, windows Mobile phones but it is expected that with the launch of the Android platform, the applications may expand exponential with time.

As it is right now, if you visit the Australian apps store, all the available are open source, meaning you can download them for free. However, even though they are free for download, the Australian apps store divides users into Single, Double or Triple membership categories. In that breadth, the users will get access to additional apps with regard to the level they are at currently.

Levels and their working

Each level comes with an additional number of available applications and the ones you can download will largely be determined by the level you are. As a user in Australia, you get activity points through rating the apps available, sharing it over mail and a number of other activity points earning mechanisms. However, if you are in the US, you might need to exercise a little patience if you are an LG enthusiast because as it is, the company is yet to say anything about an American launch. On the other hand though, countries such as Germany, the United Kingdom, France, Spain, Italy and Iran are scheduled to get the apps store sometime late this year, the company said.

Global Focus

You will remember, if you are an LG enthusiast that the company just launched its apps store the previous week and this expansion talk must mean big business. The expansion of the mobile application store is something analysts as well phone enthusiasts will follow keenly as LG canvasses the 23 states globally. The company’s business chief, Ahn Seung-kwon reiterated the company’s plans as regards the smartphone market and all indications are the company is gearing for some tough competition. Having experienced a sloppy start in the smart phone segment of the mobile market, the company said it had not foreseen the smartphone business grow this fast and will be making a comeback in the third quarter this year. The rebound is something we all look forward to given its not so impressive second quarter results in mobile sales.

As it is, the company is promising to launch an “iPhone Killer” as the business called it and would take advantage of the Android and the windows phone 7 to make its comeback in the coming two years, even as it expands its business and seeks strategy to change its dwindling mobile sales.

Google Introduces Leanback YouTube Version

I have been thisentertained by an application as I did with the Leanback version of You Tube by Google. The application works in an impressive and interesting way. When you log into your YouTube account, the application picks up videos that you might want to watch and endlessly plays them in HD.

Google TV in the Making

The application allows you to watch your videos like you are watching TV, in other words you do not have to search for videos to play them every time you want to watch. But of course you can still search if you want to. You Tube has come with this new applications that makes using it more like watching your TV set, with the improved version of the Leanback service offering. According to You Tube, the new app. will give videos viewers’ uninterrupted videos with regard to their preferences. Apparently, this app. is a test drive for the company’s experimental site, TestTube. It is expected to pick up users preferences in videos and offer videos that match those preferences and viewer habits, in a continuous video feed.


The company’s senior manager reiterated the quality of the applications stating that it is meant to let viewers “sit back, relax and be entertained.” You Tube has its eyes set on offering the new Leanback version as a package as it plans to launch the Google TV platform in the coming few months. Additionally, it will be available as a package for internet enabled gadgets, mobile phones and gaming consoles as well. The recent YouTube Leanback comes as a redone version of its existing, old homepage and is be made up of a larger window with a feed choice of video files that geared towards your preferences and interests and are shown as thumbnails. What makes the technology even more interesting is the automatic play of the videos you like soon as you are on YouTube. The moment you enter the page, your favorite videos that match your tastes will commence play almost immediately. This application is Google’s TV interface and works more like your TV as it eliminates the need to click and search for videos.

Mobile Applications

The new Leanback application will come as a great addition to mobile phones users. It makes use of HTML5 to provide a mobile site that will encompass better video quality with additional content when compared to the old You Tube functionality. The app can work on most smartphones but You Tube’s Leanback for TV is what is currently riding high. Now with your PC, you can sit back and watch You Tube videos like you are watching TV as the application is optimized for watching videos on your TV. What began as a preview at Google’s I/O will now be encompassed into its long time project, Google TV when it is introduced to the market in the coming months.

Whereas its evolution began in 2009 with the introduction of the You Tube XL interface, the overall feel for was not palpable to those who surf under the comfort of their couches. Leanback has successfully taken that challenge and made it amazingly better.
