Some developers would say that it takes a lot of work to get your app added to any app store. I’m here to say… NAY!
If you give Opera Mobile Store permission to do some of the work for you, you could be done with all you need to do in about 5 minutes. Earlier, I said, “10 minutes” – but today, we’re providing you a letter that you can copy and paste requesting us to do that work, making it even easier and faster to get your apps on Opera Mobile Store and in front of its 70 million monthly visitors.
Example Email – Feel free to use – make sure to add your information and attach your APK files:
Subject: Add my Apps to OMS!
Dear Opera Mobile Store,
I’m writing you to request adding my mobile apps to your store. I have set up an account on publishers.apps.opera.com – my user name is:
You can find my mobile apps on Google Play on the following pages:
I request and hereby give you permission to use the text, icons, and graphics associated with my apps on these pages to create new pages for my apps on Opera Mobile Store.
I am attaching the APK files for each app in this email.
To validate that I am the owner of the above apps, you can
A) review my web site – URL
B) reference a review of my apps at – URL
I look forward to future possibilities with Opera Mobile Store. Please let me know if there is anything more that you need from me to complete my request and let me know of any special cross promotion opportunities that can help promote my apps!
Company Name if applicable
And that’s it! If we need anything else from you, we will contact you. We’ve done this already for thousands of developers, so this is not particularly new. We are mainly applying to things that we are learning from developers to make it easy for them – and for you!
If you have an app on Opera Mobile Store, you have the potential for some nice extras.
And there’s more, but these are the things I’d like to concentrate on most for the present.
Get your apps on as many stores as you can – it is only beneficial to you. I’m not advocating just adding your apps to Opera Mobile Store, but to as many different stores as you can find and get on. We make it easy for you to get on Opera Mobile Store – and we will be happy to introduce you to our network partners.
Going back a few days, we took a look at statistics from AppFigures.com indicating that roughly 88% of the developers on the Big Three only have their apps on one of them, only 12% on two, just 1% on all three.
The reasons for this are worth investigating in greater detail, suffice that at least one discussion on LinkedIn has pointed to some developers not having enough time to set up an account and how each of their apps will appear in different stores. Before getting deeper into that, Opera Mobile Store makes it extremely easy and extremely fast to get your app on the 5th largest mobile app store in the world.
- affirm that you are the developer of the apps in question
- provide a links to each of your apps on other app stores
- give us permission to “clone” your listing onto Opera Mobile Store
- provide/attach a copy of your APK files
Typically, you will receive a response within 1-2 business days. If our team needs something more than what you have provided, they will be in touch with you via email. Our team will “clone” your listing – copy and format your app text, icons and images to OMS specifications, onto Opera Mobile Store.
To make it even easier for you, on Friday I will provide a copy of a letter that you can simply copy/paste and edit that you can send to our team.
All of this should take about 8 minutes to do.
In exchange for your 8 minutes, you will have your apps on the 5th largest app store with 70+ million monthly visitors. Opera Mobile Store generates over 2 million app downloads daily. You can compete for a top position on Opera Mobile Store’s app lists far easier than you can on the Big Three.
More than this, by developing a relationship with Opera Mobile Store, we can introduce you to our networking partners and accelerate the process of seeing your apps added to their stores, too. We also offer periodic cross-promotion opportunities.
Developers of premium apps can also elect to have their apps placed in special subscription service stores offered by participating mobile carriers.
At the simplest level, getting your app on many different stores increases your total points of presence. That increases your market reach because not everyone visits Google Play or dines only at McDonalds. Getting on more than one store increases your options, increases your overall potential for different opportunities.
