At a time when mobile app stores are growing faster than ever, we took a crucial quantitative and qualitative leap by closing a strategic agreement with the Unity Distribution Portal (UDP). As of today, Uptodown will be integrated into the Unity Technologies’ service which allows game developers to publish their titles on multiple marketplaces all from the same source.
In the first months of 2020, the average monthly download of apps created with Unity was over 5 billion. This volume makes it one of the world’s leading real-time 3D development tools. Thanks to this coalition, more than 600 independent studios and developers who conceptualize and create their games thanks to the Unity engine, will have at their disposal the showcase, visibility and volume of users of Uptodown with its 130 million unique users per month and more than 4500 million downloads annually.
From this moment on, any developer registered in UDP will be able to select the Uptodown App Store to distribute their software easily and simply. Under this agreement, we have also partnered with Banco Santander’s payment technology, which will streamline transactions and enable secure, integrated purchases for all apps published through Uptodown.
The linguistic versatility of Uptodown, available in 15 languages, and its prominence in international markets such as Brazil, Mexico, the Middle East, Indonesia, Russia and India, will be a quintessential ally in the projection of apps created by studios around the world.
“Offering an alternative market capable of providing an efficient service to both developers and users has been a real challenge. We have been working for two years to establish a reliable and solid bridge between our public and Unity developers. This project allows us to offer our more than 130 million monthly users a global and secure solution for the acquisition of games for Android”, affirms Luis Hernández, co-founder and CEO of Uptodown.
This is one step closer to the democratization in the distribution of mobile applications. We remain completely independent and detached from any external conditioning factors, which is why we offer our services to any user regardless of the device they use or the country from which they connect. By the way, it’s not necessary to have our official app as our entire catalogue is available for download through the web.
We hope that you will join us in this new adventure.
