Allmyapps is an application store for Microsoft Windows. The service allows users to install, update and organize over 1,500 PC applications.

History[edit]

Allmyapps developed an application manager for Ubuntu before entering Microsoft's IDEEs program and receiving 1 million euro from Elaia Partners in 2010.[2][3] The company launched the first Windows application store as a beta version at LeWeb in December 2010, for which it won the Startup Pitch competition.[4]

In December 2011, Allmyapps announced that they had 2.5 million registered users.[5]

On October 21, 2014, Allmyapps was bought by ironSource.[6]

Features[edit]

Allmyapps supports the Windows 8, Windows 7, Windows Vista and Windows XP operating systems.

The service lets users initiate the installation of applications from its website and from its desktop client. The desktop client can detect software already installed on the computer in order to update them via the application store and to save the list online as a backup.
