Mobile applications portal GetJar has clocked more than 300 million downloads from the community of mobile users who don’t own the ubiquitous Apple iPhone, the U.K.-based company said.

GetJar gives users a “mobile ecosystem” of mobile applications, including well-known platforms like Google Maps, Yahoo! Go, and Opera, and lesser-known sites like Nimbuzz, eBuddy and MyWaves.

Besides access to free applications, the portal also serves as a beta-test community for developers looking to evaluate products and get to market quickly.
