Opera Mini browser returns to GetJar app store

Conflict appears to be resolved

The Opera Mini browser has finally returned to smartphone app store GetJar, after several weeks of absence due to a competitive conflict. The reason for GetJar's turnaround remains unclear, although the company originally cited the embedded app store in Opera Mini as a violation of its terms of service and the primary reason for rejection.

"Opera Mini has been a great partner and one of our top apps for many years and our users will be happy to have a bigger and better version of Opera Mini back in our store," said GetJar CMO Patrick Mork in a blog post, though he did not delve into specifics.

The Opera app portal provides access to over 140,000 titles for most mobile platforms, aside from iOS, while GetJar offers a similar range of content. Mork initially claimed to have spent months attempting to resolve the conflict, though the company eventually decided to pull Opera Mini.
