And pay - we built the easiest way to manage online payments using the AppCoins Wallet
Then there is Catapult, an innovative app distribution and monetization console that connects developers and alternative app stores, creating unique value for creators.
So, you wanna know Aptoide’s secret algorithm? Here it is.
Innovation - meaning, we build our own way to the future. Ambition - always go beyond. Integrity - be transparent and trustworthy. Results-driven - be strong on delivering. Collaboration - the superpower is ‘We’, not ‘I’.
These are our values. These are Aptoide’s superpowers. This IS Aptoide.
Let me tell you about Aptoide. This is a great story that many of you may not know about. That’s because Aptoide, and Aptoide’s founders, Paulo and Álvaro, are all about creating, about building first. They believe that long before you talk the talk, you do have to diligently walk the walk.
This is why you may not yet know that Aptoide is now the third-largest Android store in the world as well as the biggest Portuguese company by number of users - over 400 million, and counting. Or that it has offices in Portugal, Singapore and China, and works with some of the top phone manufacturers and global telecoms giants.
