New Delhi, July 18 (ANI): MoboMarket, an international Android app marketplace from Chinese search provider Baidu Inc. has announced the launch of a new feature called 'User Stores' that will allow users to curate personalized app collections and share their recommended apps with friends.

" User Stores will bring a new, more personal element to the app store experience," said General Manager of Baidu India, Tim Yang.
