GetJar and Digital Chocolate announced their partnership to bring Millionaire City and MMA Pro Fighter to Android exclusively through GetJar. Gaming companies have struck similar deals in the past with GetJar which isn’t surprising for the fastest growing marketplace on Android.

GetJar isn’t just a static appstore. They offer expertise in marketing apps using PR and partner channels in addition to any marketing campaigns that result in massive exposure to partner apps. GetJar has in the past partnered exclusively with Rovio for Angry Birds and Zynga for Mafia Wars that we covered recently.

Rovio originally launched Angry Birds as a beta Lite version on the Android Marketplace that resulted in over a million downloads within 2 weeks. Most assumed the app would be available, then, on the marketplace post-beta testing but appeared on GetJar instead. Rovio aimed to take advantage of App It! – Rovio’s promotional tool that could promote the game across Symbian and Android operating systems. What else was interesting was Rovio’s pricing strategy as it released Angry Birds for free with hopes of monetizing with AdMob and following later with in-app purchases.

“Bringing our hugely popular social games to Android made a lot of sense as consumers take to the Android platform in droves,” said Digital Chocolate COO Jason Loia. “We decided to launch our games on GetJar because of their proven ability to market apps and games to consumers, their understanding of the space and their willingness to work closely with publishers to build awareness of their content.”

Millionaire City, Digital Chocolate’s prized city builder, and MMA Pro Fighter are both set to launch on GetJar. Millionaire City was the second fastest growing game on Facebook in 2010 and currently has 12.2MMAUs. MMA Fighter is also doing well with 2.1MMAUs.

GetJar has proudly served over 1 billion downloads since the company’s launch and provides access to roughly 75,000 mobile apps to consumers in over 200 countries. In the past GetJar has worked with Com2us, The Salvation Army and others. Check out Digital Chocolate’s games below.

  • GetJar can do premium promotion using storefront, email marketing and PR
  • Cross-platform distribution
  • Unique URL for developers to promote using social media
  • No cost
  • Analytics system that gives insight into downloads, distribution by country, handset, platform and carriers
  • In-store ad system
