Opera claims having an app store more important than appeasing GetJar
But firm trying to anyway
Yet that's exactly what Opera spokesperson Tor Odland has told mocoNews is going on.
According to the site, Odland said the two companies are "working to find solutions", though he admitted that one option might be culling the link to the firm's app store.
What makes the whole affair more interesting is the claim by GetJars CMO Patrick Mork that the two parties had engaged in discussions regarding Opera Mini's placing on GetJar months before Opera launched its app store.
As soon as it did, GetJar moved to remove Opera Mini from its platform, suggesting the previous talks weren't exactly fruitful.
Just how successful the latest discussions will be remains to be seen, though Odland's assertion that "having an app store is more important to us right now than being on GetJar" suggests they might not go all too well.
"If you compare it to the early days, we are doing more downloads from other sources than what GetJar provides to us," he concluded.
