This startup wants to be Indonesia’s answer to Google Play

25 percent of all mobile users in Indonesia download content at least once a month, according to the Mobile Marketing Association . That’s in a smartphone market projected to reach more than 132 million  users by 2017. Those are encouraging numbers for Stanley Tan from Indonesian Android app store Oomph . Much like Apple’s App Store or Google Play, Oomph is a content distributor. The key difference is that it’s tailor-made just for the Indonesian Android market.
