Back in 2019, Huawei launched the Huawei Mobile Service (HMS) for its mobile phones. Although Huawei has made tremendous progress in its efforts to expand the HMS ecosystem, it is still miles away from Android.
If you are looking to change the GMS applications to the HMS platform then here is the solution.The solution is developed by developer partner bluesource, Europe’s leading provider of enterprise app solutions. It is an open-source method that adapts GMS apps for AppGallery removing the need to redevelop apps specifically for Huawei’s app store.
The solution is christened Choice SDK and Huawei claims it makes it easy for app publishers to transform their existing apps based on GMS and Firebase frameworks into HMS usable applications.
“From a banking perspective, security is always one of the most important issues that we consider in software development. It is therefore extremely important for us that our customers only use secure and tested apps and software on their smartphones, and we ensure that there are no problems with transactions,” said Dietmar Pucher, General Manager at Raiffeisen Digital GmbH
“Businesses across Europe would like to join AppGallery but think it may take a lot of resources,” said Martin Sprengseis-Kogler, Managing Partner at bluesource. In Choice SDK we created a simple stand-alone switch that removes the complexity out of the development process and enables brands to quickly and cost-effectively adapt and port their apps. We’re delighted to have helped leading international enterprises with their app implementations for Huawei’s HMS ecosystem, particularly in the finance and banking sector, and we hope to continue to support more European businesses by making it easier to publish their apps.”
The open-source Choice SDK was originally developed for Raiffeisen Bank to help the bank make their app available to Huawei phone users in Austria. Bluesource has since made it available as open-source software so that other brands and developers can get their apps adapted faster, safer and in a more convenient way.
As per the latest record, Huawei AppGallery has 530 million monthly active users (MAUs), growing in Europe by 61.5% year-on-year to more than 42 million users. The platform has increased the number of registered developers to 2.3 million, up by 77% vs last year, and now also counts 300,000 developers outside China. There are currently 120,000 apps integrated with HMS Core, an increase of 118% vs last year.
