Blackphone said Tuesday that it is adding its own app store, with a collection of curated apps that it says complement its privacy-oriented Android smartphone.
The device, which sells for $629 unlocked, is a collaboration of Spanish device maker Geeksphone and Silent Circle, a firm that includes PGP creator Phil Zimmerman. The goal is — with so much information stored on smartphones — to have a product that puts security and privacy at the forefront.
In addition to the app store, which will launch early next year, Blackphone is adding the option for secure “spaces” — essentially allowing users to have separate containers for work and personal data, apps and accounts.
