The long-term success of Huawei phones without Google is reliant on them improving the AppGallery to be a suitable replacement to Google Play Store.
So, Huawei are eager to highlight all the new apps that land on the app gallery with regular press releases. The important thing is that it is improving, maybe not as fast as I would like, but it is moving in the right direction. With the almost unlimited resources of Huawei and the popularity of their phones, I think this trend will continue and they should weather through these tough times.
Banking apps in AppGallery
The latest addition to AppGallery is Curve’s banking platform, which hopefully starts the trend of other banks getting on board. Curve's game-changing app allows users to manage all their money and accounts in one place, making their mobile banking transparent, personalised and secure, whilst also showing real-time updates on spending.
Other recent additions
Curve joins a growing list of 81,000 popular apps already available on AppGallery, including recent additions such as:
