The Google Play Store is full of incredible apps, but that doesn’t mean that it’s always what we need. Here are two great alternatives for the famous app.
You can get this one from the official website. Here’s why you should get it.
First of all, the app is funded by donations, and the apps that you find there don’t have neither reviews nor ratings. And all of the apps from there are free and open-source software.
It’s also a perfect one if you’re a developer. As a developer, you can access the code of the apps without a penny. If you find a specific app or maybe just functionality that you want to use for your own app, you can access the code and see how it’s built or simply copy it.
There is one teeny-tiny problem: the apps are not as excellent as those on the Google Play Store. But for developers? 10/10.
There are 2.5 million malware-tested apps available, and we believe this one is a reliable alternative for the Google Play Store. You can find more than 30.000 apps here – plenty of fun for you. You can download apps directly from the website, but we advise you to install the Uptodown app. It’s better this way since it will give you info about the available updates in the future. But it won’t be a pain in the back – the notifications are not mandatory, and the app can leave you alone.
With this one, you’re not getting paid apps. All of them are free.
The apps are safe: they use Virus Total to automatically check the APKs with 50 anti-malware engines. And there’s a team taking care of it at all times.
