Finding a good Google Play Store alternative these days might be hard, but not impossible. We are here to help you with this matter. These are the best 4 picks for a Google Play Store alternative on the internet right now.
This one is an app store that focuses on open-source and free software apps only. It is very well organized, and the collection of free apps can get overwhelming.
The site is run by volunteers, and it works with the help of donations. If you find apps that you like, make sure you make a small donation to keep them working.
This one is also very popular among Android developers since they get access to all of the codes of the apps. They can even use them to make apps of their own. However, you need to keep in mind that the apps don’t come with reviews or ratings, and they may not be as stable as those found on the Google Play Store, but it is still worth trying.
This one has been around for quite the time – it’s older than the Play Store. It comes with more than 800.000 apps on mobile platforms – it even has apps for Blackberry, Symbian, and Windows Mobile.
The apps are put into categories and sub-categories, which makes apps easier to find. The interface of the desktop resembles the mobile interface, and the browsing process is straightforward.
However, you need to keep in mind that not all the apps are up to date.
This one is one of the biggest stores for downloading the APK files. All the apps that you find in this store are completely free. Just search the name of the apps and download the free APK file for it.
You can do it from the Google Play Store, as well. Search for the paid apps that you want to download for free. From the page of the app, tap on the Share button, then select GetAPK from the list. You will get to the app download page, and you will find the app for free. However, keep in mind that GetAPK doesn’t really have an excellent user interface if we are to compare it to the Google Play Store.
If you have an Android device manufactured by Samsung, you might know that there is an alternative app store, called Galaxy Store. It has a very big score when it comes to how it looks and works.
Galaxy Store comes with a lot of apps made by Samsung, and, also with other popular Android apps that you might want on your device.
However, you need to keep in mind that the app store is made only for Samsung-made devices – be them smartphones and smartwatches. It’s the best one you can get if you’re a Samsung fan.
