Browser maker Opera acquires mobile app discovery platform Bemobi Opera has announced the acquisition of Bemobi, a subscription-based mobile app discovery platform that specializes in Spanish speaking markets.
Bemobi offers users unlimited access to paid mobile apps for a weekly fee, and the charge is added to their carrier bill. The carrier part is important in many Latin American nations since credit cards and even bank accounts are relatively hard to come by.

The company says it has 6 million active subscribers.

How will Opera, a browser developer, use the service? Good question. According to Opera, thanks to their existing connections with carriers (some of which pre-install mobile Opera on their phones), Opera will look to leverage such relationships and combine the services to "bring innovative app-discovery and monetization services across the globe and position Opera as the global leader in this space."
