With this strategic partnership with MatchMove, GamesXP will have its very own platform that features globally popular games alongside games specially developed for the local consumer, full featured social networking and e-commerce capabilities in Arabic, English and French; all on a secure cloud-based service,” said Iyad Ahmad, CEO of GamesXP.

He then added, “And with the award-winning AppKungFu API set being made available to GamesXP, getting new and local social, mobile and casual content just became a lot easier. We are delighted to have found MatchMove”.
