Early Mobile‐First Leader

Founder and CEO Si Shen left a successful career at Google to join forces with CTO Qian Wenjie in 2008 to form PapayaMobile in in Beijing, China.

Early in our history, PapayaMobile was one of the first to bring social gaming to mobile. We produced over 13 titles on first generation mobile OS Symbian and Java, then next generation Android and iOS. Our first global hit was Papaya Farm on iOS and Android.

Leveraging first‐hand experience building a mobile gaming network with tens of millions of users, PapayaMobile launched tools to help third‐party developers distribute and monetize their games through APIs, SDKs and the first ever mobile game engine built specifically for social games. With over 1,000 titles connecting to our network, more than 110 million users enjoyed the social features provided in our mobile games.

Papaya Labs develops innovative consumer products including Kiwi Calendar, Social Cash, and other top grossing apps. We have been ranked #1 in the Google Play Store.
