- Youku's (YOKU +9%) Tudou mobile video apps will integrate a Qihoo (QIHU -2.5%) "handset cleaner" tool that scans phones for viruses and promises to improve device performance.
- The partnership is tied to Qihoo's Highlights initiative, which gives 3rd-party developers access to its security APIs. Qihoo claims nearly 100 apps now support the initiative.
- Both Youku and Qihoo are doing well on mobile. Youku's daily mobile video views have topped 200M, and mobile now makes up over 30% of the company's traffic. Qihoo asserts 338M smartphones used its 360 Mobile Safe security app at the end of Q2.
