November 18, 2008 (PRLEAP.COM) Business News
Phoload, a community website built around free downloadable mobile software, has announced support for Google's Android platform. Phoload hosts free mobile games and applications that have been uploaded directly to the site by mobile software developers. With a fresh, clean interface, Phoload has been rapidly gaining in popularity since its launch, just two months ago.

As of today, Phoload is offering downloadable freeware, demo and ad-supported software created for the Android platform and compatible with the recently released T-Mobile G1 phone. A few examples of the variety of applications already available on the site include: Toodoo by Édouard Mercier, offering audio, video, and geographically-based reminders; FotMob by Score Service, featuring live updates from major European football leagues; and the vOICe for Android by Peter Meijer, an artificial vision system which uses sensory substitution to aid blind people. These and more Android applications can be viewed at:

"The Android platform has caught the imagination of both the industry and the developer community. We're very pleased to be able to support this platform on Phoload and make some of fantastic Android software available for free download to our users. Phoload's clean, simple-to-use interface is already popular with mobile users, and I'm sure owners of Android phones will enjoy using it too." says Jamie McDonald, CEO Phoload.

While Google's own Android Market will likely dominate the Android application distribution space, Jamie believes that there is a place for other application download stores, such as Phoload. "Download sites like Phoload can augment the functionality of the Android Market by, for example, offering a web-based front end and highlighting and promoting Android content that people might otherwise miss. Having initially launched with support for Java Micro Edition mobile software and with today's addition of Android software, Phoload can also provide a single point around which users of all different phone types can download and discuss the free mobile software."

Phoload continues to add support for other mobile software platforms, with Symbian support scheduled to launch in December.
