Welcome to
Bemobi AppStore.
A new way to distribute and monetize your premium Android Apps.

Bemobi AppStore main benefits for App publishers

Less competition

While most stores focus on numbers we are focused on quality. We only carry the best premium apps covering the main app categories. This equals to more satisfied customers and less App competition for developers.

Everyone is a paying user

No credit card required. All Android users are potential subscribers of Bemobi AppStore since we have carrier-billing agreements with partnering carriers in Brazil and Latin America. And all AppStore subscribers that use your app automatically generate revenue for you.

No Integration required

No additional cost and no additional work required. We leverage the same APK file and the same metadata used in GooglePlay minimizing the work. All workload involved in the distribution, processing and management of subscriptions is on us.

Smart Pricing

Not everyone uses and values your app the same, so why should they all pay the same amount and only once? With a subscription plan you get a recurring revenue stream eliminating the need of in-app purchases and ads. Revenue from the subscription is shared based on actual app usage.

New revenue

Bemobi AppStore is a non-exclusive channel where developers can still keep their existing distribution deals with GooglePlay and Apple. Developers get a new revenue stream, additional brand exposure, and new users on top of their existing channels.

Extra Visibility

Our App Store is preloaded by default to all Android phones that our partners sell. This distributions model coupled with a short selection of premium apps means more marketing power and more exposure of your apps.

A new distribution model

Bemobi AppStore uses a subscription platform coupled with carrier billing to provide a better way to monetize your apps. This overcomes the low penetration of credit cards in developing countries while providing a better value for both developers and users. Limited competition per app category means everyone gets high visibility.

The Best Apps

All paying subscribers are potential users of your apps since there is no incremental cost for downloading and experimenting with new apps. We only work with the best and most desired apps covering all top App categories.

It's social

Bemobi AppStore Social recommends your apps to new users. Every time a user downloads your app it automatically becomes part of a social feed in Facebook and within the AppStore. Not only is this a powerful viral marketing tool, but it also greatly enhances the App Discovery process beyond basic search and static app rankings lists.

It's all about the user

Users who subscribe to the AppStore get unlimited usage of all premium apps without the need for credit cards. Users are always in control and have constant feedback on how much they are charged, how much they are saving, what Apps they are using, and receive new App recommendations based on our featured section and on our social feed.

The Opportunity

We’re starting our Subscription AppStores in Brazil due to its large market and to its low credit card penetration.

  • Brazil is one of the top 5 mobile markets in the world with over 260 million subscribers.

  • It is the second fastest-growing smartphone market in the globe with 75M smartphone users*

  • We unlock almost 70% of the Android market that have no access to credit card and therefore are not reachable through Google Play

  • You get a recurring revenue stream based on active users instead of one-off transactions.

  • You get extra visibility and a marketing push of your apps from our mobile carrier partners.

  • You also get significant upside in revenues at a very little opportunity cost since no exclusivity is required and no integration effort is needed

Despite Brazil’s perfect fit for our distribution model, this is just the beginning.

How it Works

Business Model

Apps

New Model (subscription)

Very low app competition where just a few hundred curated premium apps are pre-selected and divided amongst noncompeting categories.

Traditional Model (Pay Per Download)

Millions of users with smartphones in emerging markets, but just a small percentage have credit cards and the willingness to use them for purchasing apps/digital goods.

Users

New Model (subscription)

Millions of users with smartphones, all of them enabled by carrier billing to pay for apps.

Traditional Model (Pay Per Download)

Very high app competition where hundreds of thousands of apps compete for visibility. Just a few ones will be downloaded.

AppStore

New Model (subscription)

Everyone is a paying customer and since there is no incremental cost under the subscription model lots of apps get downloaded and used on a recurring basis.

Traditional Model (Pay Per Download)

Few apps get downloaded and even fewer are paid for.

Revenue

New Model (subscription)

Developer gets a monthly recurring revenue stream. Revenue is calculated based on the split of the subscription fee amongst the usage of each app.

Traditional Model (Pay Per Download)

Revenue is one-off for each purchase, making it hard to monetize.

The platform

Storefront

The storefront is the visible part of the AppStore. This app comes preloaded and branded by our partnering carriers or smartphone manufacturers. There is no need to change Android’s settings to accept downloads by unknown sources. Our storefront APK is lightweight while providing all the cutting edge features that came to be expected by AppStore users. Beyond the basic features we provide one of a kind social feed for app discovery, push notifications as well as a real-time savings calculator for users.

Developers' Portal

Our Developer’s Portal is our main interface with developers. In this self-service portal, it is possible to check reports and dashboards containing all your key app usage metrics, approve payments, upload and manage apps and their versions and much more.

DRM

Our Digital Rights Management system not only protects your apps from being used by non-paying users, but also controls all key App usage metrics.

Subscription Engine

The subscription engine is the core system that manages the customer base, the charging process; the revenue split rules as well and the recurrence of payments. It is very scalable currently handling millions of paying users as well as the recurring payment of hundreds of developers every month. It supports many different subscription possibilities such as billing cycle (e.g. daily, weekly or monthly), trial period duration, temporary price promotions, and many other key aspects that are critical for the mobile pre-paid segment.
