We are very excited to have the Globe Labs – Charging API (Application Programming Interface) for Android where it can help developers monetize and reach more users. We are also thankful to Anino Games for pioneering this in the Philippines. We are confident that this would inspire other developers to create free apps where they could earn as well using the easiest method available – mobile load credits,” she said.
Anne Michelle Santos, Developer Relations Manager for Globe Labs, meanwhile, encourages other developers to integrate the operating billing feature in their apps so that Globe smartphone customers can easily avail of the mobile in-apps.

We are excited to partner with Cherry Mobile in order to bring our games to more Filipino gamers. We also applaud the vision of Globe Telecom so that creating mobile games for the Philippine market becomes a win-win for both the telco and the developer,” said Niel Dagondon, CEO of Anino Games.
