Making a mobile phone application has just gotten easier in Lebanon, thanks to new app stores and platforms launched by Lebanese phone networks Alfa and touch as well as global phone giant Nokia.The new services – announced at this week's Arabnet Beirut 2014 conference – will allow app developers to reach the public more easily, change platforms and receive payment through phone bills, thus increasing revenue. Like Apple does with its App Store, Alfa and touch will take 30 percent of the profit, while the developer will keep 70 percent. Prabhakaran gave a presentation Tuesday afternoon on the first day of Arabnet to launch the company's app store in Lebanon – now one of 43 countries that offer the service, which was launched last week at the Mobile World Congress Barcelona.
