GetJar wants people to know that it’s the second largest mobile app store in the world. In an effort to attract customers who might make that store even bigger, the multiplatform app distributor is giving away games that normally cost money.

Glu Mobile supplied a number of games that will be available in the GetJar featured app section. Android gamers will be able to access the free titles by visiting GetJar.com and clicking the Recommended section. There, users will find free games from Glu Mobile like Brain Genius 2, Stranded: Mysteries of Time, Build-a-lot, and Race Drive Grid.

GetJar is using this promotion as a test to see if it can attract more business in the GetJar+ program, which will offer more premium games for free.

“GetJar’s global scale and consumer base allows us to reach an entirely new audience of game-hungry consumers who ordinarily might not be able to buy premium games while also extending the life cycle of our own products through the use of a large and growing distribution channel.” – Olivier Bernard, Managing Director of Glu EMEA and APAC
