App developers can pay APPS to include their app on a smartphone’s initial setup for a new customer. APPS allows app developers to target specific customers across AT&T and Verizon,” noted the firm, as quoted by Street Insider.

Previously, users would click to download an app and be brought to the Google Store to download the app they want.
