App developers can now distribute their apps to millions of cars worldwide.
Catappult and Faurecia-Aptoide have announced they’re joining forces to launch an innovative app distribution service for cars.
Using Faurecia-Aptoide’s highly regarded app store technology, developers will now be able to distribute their games and apps in cars. Faurecia-Aptoide already works with major automotive brands such as Volkswagen, BMW, and Mercedes-Benz.
With the new service, available at Catappult, developers can now design and finetune their apps and games for cars, manufacturers will be able to customize their app stores, and users will get access to a wide range of apps and games tailored to their own interests and their car’s capabilities.
The new distribution hub provided to mobile app developers through Catappult allows developers not only to easily distribute apps in major global app stores, but also to distribute them in top car brands, enhancing the consumer’s car digital experience.
Álvaro Pinto, COO of Aptoide, sees the new Faurecia-Aptoide and Catappult partnership as “a game-changing solution that allows the automotive industry to offer a much richer, more personalized experience to their customers.”
“It’s incredibly exciting to launch this service together with Catappult,” said Thijs van Herkhuizen, General Manager of Faurecia-Aptoide Automotive. “We finally have an entirely new way for developers to get their apps and games into drivers’ cars and for manufacturers to offer a dedicated selection of apps and games tailored to their cars and their drivers’ needs.”
“Faurecia-Aptoide and Catappult’s technology and collaboration provide developers and manufacturers with the exciting opportunity to work together to create a uniquely engaging app experience for customers, bringing forward a new era of in-car app distribution,” concludes Álvaro Pinto.
The new app distribution hub for cars is now available at Catappult.
