Apple has released a new mobile application stores called GT Mobile, which will allow users to shop for and download apps, while also providing the ability to create new applications for the platform.
Users can browse apps from the Apple App Store and Google Play for the Mac and PC, and create new apps for other platforms.
Users of the Apple Mobile Developer program can now download and install a new app, and will receive a prompt to create an account for their new app.
Users can then import their existing apps from their existing Apple account, and install new apps.
The new GT Mobile app stores have been designed to address the needs of Apple’s mobile app developers, who have been unable to make use of the company’s own app store on their devices.
Apple’s GT Mobile store is intended to help developers find and download a variety of apps, from game developers, to music creators, to news organizations, to video game publishers.
Apple said that the new app stores would be able to make apps “available across all platforms” and offer “a single place for users to find, download, and run apps.”
The GT Mobile stores will support a variety the company said will include video game publisher Steam, as well as media content creators such as Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, YouTube, and Spotify.
Users of the GT Mobile apps will also be able “create and distribute apps for iOS, macOS, and tvOS.”
Apple announced the new GT mobile app stores at the IFA tech conference in Berlin on Thursday, saying that GT Mobile was the first major Apple app store to support third-party developers.
Apple said the GT mobile application sites would also provide developers with access to the “best in-app content” available in the app store.
Apple’s developers can then “build on top of existing apps, like the popular App Store, to offer even more great apps for consumers,” the company added.
“With the ability for developers to build and share new apps, Apple has taken the best features of the App Store with them to new platforms like the App store,” Apple said in a statement.
“With a simple tap of a button, users can download and run their apps on their Mac, PC, or iOS device.
The new GT App Stores will make it easy for developers, publishers, and consumers to build on top the App stores.”
In addition to developers, consumers will benefit from new, enhanced access to in-store content that’s tailored for them.
Users will also see a simpler and more convenient way to manage and download their content.
“These new GT app stores will be able and ready for customers in less than three months,” Apple added.
“We’ll have more details as we get closer to launch.”
Apple has long had a strong relationship with developers, and the company has also previously been heavily involved in developing and distributing content for the Appstore.
In March, Apple announced that it would be releasing its own version of the app stores for iOS and macOS, but that the iOS and Mac versions would be limited to 10 apps at a time.
The Mac versions will be limited by 5 apps.
