GetJar, a third party applications store, has just launched its new GetJar Gold service.
You don't even have to sign up. You can just install the app on your phone and you're ready to go.
There 50 free apps out at the moment, including Fruit Ninja, THD and other great ones. All paid versions but you get them for free, which means all high quality apps with no ads. The combined value for all the apps is around $60. The CEO, Ilja Laurs, has also said that new apps will be added daily so keep going back for new additions.
GetJar is no doubt trying to compete with Amazons service so this should get the third party app store some recognition and followers.
