Huawei AppGallery continues to grow

The FAB Mobile app is part of a growing portfolio of financial, banking and government service apps that have joined the Huawei Mobile Service (HMS) ecosystem.

“We are delighted to announce that FAB is the latest bank to become part of our HMS ecosystem. Our partnership with a leading regional bank means that not only will our businesses benefit but consumers are now able to use the bank’s services from the convenience of their Huawei smartphone, said Lu Geng, Vice President Middle East and Africa Global Partnerships & Eco-Development.

“Huawei has been working closely with local developers in the UAE to increase customer engagement with the delivery of a wide selection of high-quality apps through the Huawei AppGallery. This commitment has been supported by heavy investment in localizing apps so that they offer more functionality to consumers in the UAE. This has meant that 95% of the top apps in MEA [Middle East and Africa] are now available on Huawei AppGallery and of these, 88% work on HMS Core,” added Lu Geng.

A better user experience

Collaborations with key organizations have resulted in high user experience ratings for local apps on the Huawei AppGallery. Its full-cycle security and protection system ensures developers are verified and all apps in the marketplace are secure and maintain the data privacy of users.
