But reach the 700 millions active users of smartphones and tablets is not easy and requires a complete strategy in the opposite to a simple localization plan. 
First, the main difficulty for app or game publisher is to choose the good marketplace(s) among more than 200. We could list some majors like Myapp or 360 Mobile Assistant. Others are more specialized, for example Downjoy, one of the leaders in mobile game.
Between all those app stores and the infinity of applications available on the market, how could you promote your creation ?

Why not using an app already installed on a big part of your smartphones’ users target ?
