App stores - the latest mobile must-have

Orange today announced the extension of its app store and launch of its widget services.

 

The Orange Application Store will be extended to support more operating systems, and will offer casual apps like astrology, magic tricks and puzzles, as well as dictionaries, currency converters and other business services.

 

The new range of mobile widgets gives Orange customers one-click access to data such as weather updates and news alerts. The widgets will be downloadable and available on its Signature line of handsets (these are the top-of-the-range phones which can handle high-end services like location-based and social networking apps).

 

The widget service will be launched in May across all European markets, and as it takes off, should be available to third-party developers.
