Tencent has announced that daily app downloads from the Chinese internet and mobile services firm’s ‘Myapp’ app store have reached 110 million.
The figure includes downloads made directly from the Myapp store, as well as Myapp-powered downloads made from Tencent’s QQ browser, Mobile QQ messaging app and WeChat/Weixin messaging app, which reached 438 million monthly active users in August.
Earlier this year, Tencent launched a version of the hugely successful ‘Candy Crush Saga’ game for Mobile QQ and Weixin.
Tencent announced a gross profit of around $2.1055 million in Q3, an increase of 49 per cent year-on-year.
Chairman and CEO Ma Huateng said, “We achieved another quarter of solid growth in our platforms, revenue and earnings. Our online advertising business expanded particularly swiftly, as we deployed targeted performance-based advertising on Mobile Qzone and Weixin Official Accounts.”
