GetJar Gold Has Top Applications, For “Appsolutely” Free

GetJar is now introducing GetJar Gold. Having a nice list of paid apps, for completely free. It definitely resembles Amazon’s route of bringing in more traffic by offering free apps, but we as consumers, are not going to complain. For their first round up of free apps, we have some great ones: Backbreaker, SwiftKey X, Age of Zombies, and a few other well known titles.

Go check it out and get yourself some free apps. Is it not great when companies give us what we want? No telling how developers will feel about this, but we’re hoping GetJar isn’t completely ripping them off as it seems other companies might be doing.

Update: As our friend Artem pointed out in the comment section below, GetJar is known as a one time download site for apps, with no real support for app updates. We shall see soon enough if GetJar has implemented a new system possibly to update paid for apps you get for free through their Gold program.

    my droid x keeps saying download unsuccessful and no other browser works! i need help!

  • I paid $22.85 for an iPhone 4-32GB and my girlfriend loves her Panasonic Lumix GF 1 Camera that we got for $38.76 there arriving tomorrow by UPS. I will never pay such expensive retail prices in stores again. Especially when I also sold a 40 inch LED TV to my boss for $674 which only cost me $62.81 to buy. Here is the website we use to get it all from, CentHub.com

    It possible to download these apps from GetJar on an unsupported phone (i.e. claim your device is an Evo 4G when its really an Evo 3D or something to that effect)?

    • Yes. Android is Android. They don’t have feature checks like the Android Market.

    thunderbolt works…. you just have to download the downloadhelper.apk and install the apps

    • Ryan C

      i found out you can uninstall it then and at least for me, swiftkey x still worked

      • Anonymous

        I searched swiftkey x on there and it didnt find it?

        • Ryan C

          It was right on the front apps page yesterday, but right now getjar.com comes up saying its temporarily unavailable..?

  • X13thangelx

    Doesnt support Droid 2 Global 🙁

    • My roommate has that phone and she was able to get Cut the Rope from them last night. It works.

  • Seeing as I have some of these apps already (or at least the ones I’m interested in), I’ll pass but thanks for pointing this out.

  • Thunderbolt isn’t listed when they ask you to input the make and model of phone you have. Not even listed under  Mecha.

  • Anonymous

    My thunderbolt isn’t a supported device…

    • Neither was my Nexus S. But my DROIDX was luckily. 

    • Use your phones browser and go to m.getjar.com. Worked on my ‘Bolt.

        I’m on CM7 so that might be the issue.

  • Aren’t apps from GetJar just downloaded on a one-time basis? So if you get SwiftKey for free today and it goes paid tomorrow, you won’t be able to update? Is there even update support at all on GetJar?

    • Guess we’ll find out soon. 

    • Also, if they have no update process yet, then maybe if people like the apps a lot, they can then find it on the Market and purchase it. 😛

      • This makes a lot of sense to me, and is how I’ve been handling the Amazon free apps as well. With the changes to the refund policy on the Market, it’s not really possible to properly test a paid app before making a decision about it, so when I see an app I’m interested in offered for free, I download it and play with it until I make up my mind – then I uninstall it, and either leave it off my phone, or go buy the full version in the Market.

        • +1 Makes sense to me!

        • Mahercs

          Huh?  Amazon’s “Free app of the day” IS the full app version and Amazon does indeed provide updates when they are available. When you open the Amazon App Store on your phone, hit your Menu button> My Apps> select Update Available along the top.

          • Yes they provide updates but if you want to really support a dev then buying the app through the Android Market is a good idea. Having apps on Amazon free app of the day generates absolutely no income for developers and some apps like Pocket Casts and Apparatus have stopped provided updates on Amazon.

          • Bill

            Howdy, fyi, GetJar Gold does provide income for developers.  

    • Anonymous

      Yeah that’s why I have stayed away from them. Unless they get an update system it’s useless. I’d rather pay money and get my updates.

    Looks shady.

    • Definitely legit. GetJar were the first to release Cut the Rope, and a couple other big titles for Android. Don’t worry hah

        Alright, first time I’ve heard of it.

    • GetJar has been around longer than Android. I remember getting apps for my Blackberry back in the day.

      • Peter Bartholomul

        and yet Getjar still doesn’t have an update system? no thanks. i’d prefer to pay and recieve updates

  • Ryan C

    hmm.. we have yet to be able to tell if devs are being “ripped off” in any way from getjar.

    • Peter Bartholomul

      you mean the devs that wanted a 15 minute refund policy instead of 24 hour refund policy? yea i hope they are getting ripped off

      • Ryan C

        okay, good point.
