Motorola Mobility has closed its "Shop4Apps" Android app store in China. Apps hosted in the China Shop4Apps store will be handed over to Beijing-based app store operator Ou Le Bar Technology's Crossmo app store. The Shop4Apps Android app store was launched in China in 2010 through a partnership with Ou Le Bar Technology.
The Crossmo app store has posted a notice on its official home page welcoming Motorola partner app developers to the platform. The posting also notes the company's three-year partnership with Motorola and wish to continue working with the company.
