Almost every single Chinese Internet company is operating an app download and management service — you must have heard that Baidu is going to buy one for $1.9 billion as many others are capable of developing one in-house.

NetEase Apps Box, an Android app management tool developed by NetEase Inc., has been opened for public testing on July 16 (source in Chinese). The release of this service signaled that NetEase App Center, which mainly concentrates on iOS system, is expanding to Android system.

Its features includes Smart Filling (not official translation), apps management, one-click installation and data synchronization, etc.

Smart Filling, a major feature of the service, can classify the apps in a smartphone automatically. Subscribers can install average apps with a single click on one button, rather than download and install them step by step. NetEase App Box recommends the hottest mobile games and apps to you. In addition, the box also provides data backup services.

Currently, NetEase Apps Box is only available to clients with invitation codes. Users who are interested in the app can apply for invitation codes at here.
