Bloomberg Starts Its Own App Store
Yet another company wants to get into the app store business. Bloomberg has launched Bloomberg App Portal, a new app store that offers apps related to the financial industry. So far, the store boasts 45 titles, including, yes, Angry Bonds.
Like Apple and Google, Bloomberg takes a 30 percent cut of revenues that mobile development firms earn through the app store. Many of the apps currently listed in the store make use of Bloomberg's proprietary financial data and command very high purchase prices. Developers interested in creating apps for the store can find out more on the Bloomberg App Portal page.
