Popular applications on Samsung’s Bada platform

An application that turns the Samsung Wave into a flashlight, tops Samsung Apps’ list of most popular app downloads between June 1 and mid July.

Utility apps top the list, while entertainment and games apps are also very popular on Samsung’s Bada platform.
An application that turns the Samsung Wave (S8500) into a flashlight, tops Samsung Apps’ list of most popular app downloads between June 1 and mid July.
While a utility app held the top spot on the list released today by Samsung Apps, the application hub of mobile phone maker Samsung, entertainment apps were a heavy presence throughout the list. The third-most downloaded program, Illusions, offers visually stimulating puzzles and screenshots. SouthAfrica2010 gained popularity during the recent football tournament. Free-throw practice app for basketball fans and an arcade style shooting program too ranked high in popularity among consumers.
Magic Torch, a unique app which transforms the phone into a flashlight with four different screens: standard light bulb, ecological light bulb, neon light bulb, and white screen, topped the charts as the most downloaded application across the globe.
Another utility app MyMirror, which turns the phone into a mirror using the camera device, featured on the list as well.
Entertainment programs filled the rest of the list; the most popular apps for the Wave device were: Need For SpeedTM Shift (game), Illusions (entertainment), SouthAfrica2010 (entertainment), BatteryLife (productivity), Basketball (entertainment), Shot Gun (entertainment) and Exciting Freekick (games). BatteryLife calculates remaining battery power based on factors such as WiFi use, call time, music play and use of 2G or 3G internet connections.
“Response to Samsung Apps has been tremendous in our target markets, and a lot of it is because of the popularity of utility and entertainment apps,” said Kanghyun Kwon, vice president, media solutions center, Samsung Electronics.
He added, “The days of using a phone just for talking are long gone — functionality is key now. With Samsung Apps, we aim to fill the need for functionality and practical apps for all of our existing Samsung customers, as well as attract new customers by adding more unique applications. We’re excited with what the future holds for Samsung Apps.”
Created in September 2009 to provide Samsung smartphone users a dedicated online application destination, Samsung Apps has more than trebled the size of its stores in most European and Asian markets and now offers a multitude of new applications including games, social networking, ebooks and health related tools.
Samsung Apps was created by and is overseen by Samsung’s Media Solutions Center (MSC), which is also responsible for developing the Bada platform, Social Hub and various other programs. After recognising the growing importance of content and applications, the MSC was established to develop content strategy and tools across the company’s business divisions.
