GetJar today began offering the popular game "Cut the Rope," from ZeptoLab, for Android users. This is the first Android version of the popular iOS game, and it will be available for free on GetJar for a week.
"Demand for Cut the Rope on Android has surged since we first launched on the iOS platform last year," said Efim Voinov, CTO at ZeptoLab, in a statement. "We are excited to partner with GetJar to offer our fans a free version of the game during its first week on the Android platform and we look forward to the response from this new audience."
GetJar, which has amassed nearly 2 billion downloads across 190 countries, has partnered on other exclusive app launches with major developers. In October of 2010, the company launched a similar exclusive of Angry Birds for Android, which was so popular that it temporarily shut down GetJar's servers.
Cut the Rope reached the No. 1 spot globally on Apple's App Store and recently won the Apple Design Award for the Best iPhone Developer showcase as well as a BAFTA award for Best Handheld Game.
Cut the Rope for Android will be distributed widely on additional app stores following the GetJar exclusive.
