KaiOS, built on top of Firefox OS, allows developers to build scaled-down web applications that run on low-end phones, most of which are equipt with 4G, Wi-Fi, 240x320 non-touch screens, D-pad navigation, a T9 keyboard, and VGA camera. This format is perfect for simple applications and classic arcade games. With less than 2,000 total applications and games available, it’s much easy to stand out on the KaiStore than on the Google Play Store for Android or the App Store for iOS.
