A number of more than 3,000 applications are now available via the LG Application Store. More than half of these software solutions are aimed at feature phones.

Among the apps that interest users the most, we can count SNS (Social Networking Service), IM (Instant Messenger), VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol), and navigation and mapping.
