Huawei’s AppGallery is the company’s indigenous app store to counter the US plans and be self-reliant. With it, the company has been rapidly expanding the ecosystem with popular apps like Telegram, Hungama, Bolt, HERE Maps, and more. Now, Moovit, an intel-owned Mobility service provider has joined the bandwagon of apps on AppGallery.
The app is now available for download on the company’s official AppGallery store. However, it is available as a web version and a customized version on the Huawei browser as well. Huawei says the app service will extend to more than 100 countries and 45 languages. And be locally relevant with vouchers, offers, and gifts. Further, the partnership will collaborate for in-app promotions on Moovit and details will be announced on the app. Besides, 865 million people reportedly use the Moovit service already across 3200 cities.
For the unaware, Moovit is an Israel-based Mobility as a Service provider(MaaS) that gives travel guides for users to transit across cities. Some of its unique features include real-time arrival information, Live Direction with Get off and service alerts, step-by-step guidance, and more. Additionally, the app also has accessibility, screen-reading features for disabled, and blind people respectively.
Moovit basically gathers data from the API framework of local transports and gets information from transport authorities, and its community. For instance, it has been actively updating the transport info during the pandemic with the help of Moovit’s Mooviter community of 700,000 local editors. All these results in accurate real-time routes for journeys in addition to stop-by-stop navigation options.
Huawei’s AppGallery is making a lot of in-roads recently. The company, which promised to bring popular apps to its store, has already brought navigation apps like MapmyIndia pre-installed on Indian devices. Although it was introduced way back in 2018 globally, the app store gained steam after the US ban. The company’s own AppStore is reportedly the third-largest store after Apple and Google. Now, the app store has Moovit, along with other recently-added Travel apps like Booking.com, eSky, Omio, Skyscanner/Turkish Airlines.
