When most of us think about obtaining Android applications the Android Market is most likely the number one spot that comes to mind. We can’t forget about GetJar though, over the past year they’ve been hard at work keeping their open Android Market alternative going; all while maintaining a database of applications for various other smartphone platforms. Seeing the value in their work, Tiger Global Management has stepped in to help GetJar further innovating in their area of expertise by investing $25 Million into the company.

“GetJar has the rare combination of a differentiated, cross platform app store solution coupled with a unique revenue model,” said Lee Fixel, Managing Director at Tiger Global Management. “We’ve been highly impressed with the leadership team and their ability to disrupt the marketplace with the fraction of spend compared to the likes of Google and others. I’m very excited to see what GetJar will do next with our investment during this tremendous growth period.”

$25 Million should keep things running smoothly for a while. If you’re interested in the full press release for further details you can find it after the break. [Businesswire]
