List Your App on Huawei’s AppGallery to Win Money and Open More Business Opportunity
Development is just the first part of the process of launching a new app. After you’ve developed it, you begin the process of listing and growing your app on an app store. Listing it on the Google Play store or Apple App store is the usual first steps that people take. However, you might be missing out on a massive audience if you haven’t considered the Huawei AppGallery. AppGallery has the ability to expand your audience to a massive amount of users in different parts of the world. Huawei claims that the AppGallery is now one of the world’s top three app marketplaces.
For anyone trying to make a profitable app, listing your app on the Huawei AppGallery could be a major business opportunity that should not be overlooked. Diversifying your platforms is so important. Anyone paying attention to the news knows how easy it is for a country to ban other countries’ services as they make political moves. This could lead to potential users missing out on your creation.
Huawei is currently host the Apps UP contest, which is designed to foster innovation from app developers. The Huawei HMS App Innovation Contest aims to inspire global developers to leverage HMS Core to create innovative apps, bringing smart life services to Huawei device users in 170+ countries and regions.
Huawei has set aside US$1 million from the Shining Star Program as prize money for the contest. US$200,000 will be allocated for the following award winners in each region:
- Asia Pacific
- Middle East & Africa
- Latin America

Reaching 650 Million Users
When participating in the Apps UP contest, you have the chance to submit your app to the AppGallery. Once it’s listed, it will be showcased and promoted during the competition and public voting stage.
Huawei AppGallery has become massively popular in the Chinese market. It has also become the only app marketplace on many Huawei phones. As the marketplace grows, Huawei now has the ability to show your app to 420 million monthly active users in the AppGallery. When this is combined with Huawei’s entire ecosystem you’ll be getting exposure on apps like Browser, Mobile Cloud, Themes, Music, Video, and Assistant. This connected ecosystem has more than 650 million active users every month. All of these users are potential customers for your app.
The tools you’ll have at your disposal when you choose to take advantage of AppGallery include pre-orders, push notifications that promote your app, Quick Apps to let users try before they download, and much more.
Designed for Developers
Huawei has a very good understanding of what developers need to grow and manage their app. AppGallery is designed for apps of all sizes, whether it’s a small weather app or a massive multiplayer game like GARENA FREE FIRE.
Huawei Mobile Services, or HMS, is Huawei’s alternative to GMS, consisting of user-facing apps as well as core background services. The idea behind HMS is the same as that of GMS — to provide an experience that is consistent across devices and independent of the platform update. Much like how GMS is made up of app elements and core elements, the HMS ecosystem comprises of HMS Apps, the HMS Core, and the HMS Capabilities that the Core enables through its available APIs.
Developers that choose the Huawei ecosystem have many powerful tools to help them develop amazing apps. The Huawei Mobile Service kits (HMS Core) are a collection of easy-to-use kits that offer resources that make app development so much simpler. Use services like analytics kit to gather detailed information about your users, or push kit to implement push notifications into your app. There are dozens of kits available, with more being added all the time.
You can find a large number of resources including training videos, documents, and more information at the Huawei developer website.
“HMS Core offers a rich array of open device and cloud capabilities, which facilitate efficient development, fast growth, and flexible monetization. This enables global developers to pursue groundbreaking innovation, deliver next-level user experiences, and make premium content and services broadly accessible.”
Here is a list of the HMS Kits that are currently available:
