Blackphone is a privacy-focused smartphone that came out earlier this year. It is powered by PrivatOS which is a custom fork of Android 4.4.2 KitKat. The Blackphone provides secure calls, messaging, content storage and more but there was one caveat. In order to take advantage of these features users could only use the default apps that came with the device. That changes now. Blackphone has announced that it will soon launch a “privacy-focused” app store.

This app store is meant for Blackphone and is entirely focused on apps that provide privacy. Curated applications selected by the company will be featured in the app store.

That’s not all. Early next year the company is also going to release a major update for PrivatOS which will bring a feature called “Spaces.” This will allow users to create self-contained spaces on their device to separate apps, data and accounts. Essentially this means users will be able to separate work apps and data from personal apps and data.

Blackphone CEO Toby Weir-Jones says that the addition of Spaces and the app store is going to be a “game changer” for this brand. Expect Blackphone’s privacy-focused app store to arrive by January 2015. The PrivatOS update is destined for “early 2015.”
