Xiaomi launches international app store

Xiaomi logoXiaomi has had so much success with its app store in China, that it has opened up an international app store that will allow developers from Hong Kong, Taiwan, and Singapore to show off their wares. The company's Chinese app store is averaging 50 million downloads a day. That figure includes some downloads of the more than 3000 apps built for the Xiaomi Mi Pad tablet.

Recently, Xiaomi celebrated the 10 billionth download from its Chinese app store. From the beginning of this year through October, the company has paid out $60 million to developers. That is why the code jockeys are salivating at the thought of Xiaomi opening up its app store to other global markets. With the manufacturer branching out to India, that would seem a logical place for Xiaomi to open its app store.

Xiaomi and other companies benefit from Google's decision to currently keep the Play Store out of China. But the Chinese market is too big for Google to stay out of forever, and there is speculation about a possible return. That might cool off Xiaomi's app store a little. After all, why settle for a third party Android app store when the original is available. But for the moment, that is all conjecture, and Xiaomi still has the opportunity to run up some big numbers for its Chinese app store.
