There’s no denying in the fact that the Google Play Store is a fantastic app. It’s basically what we all need to get new apps, and it’s also safe. But what if we don’t find what we need on it?
We have made a list of the best Google Play Store alternatives that always come in handy.
Amazon App Store
When you are looking for something beyond the Google Play Store, the Amazon App Store is what you need. You can get many free and paid apps – and paid apps for free.
Amazon is offering paid apps for free every day. You can get access to them only if you use the Amazon App Store. Amazon also offers free bundles of paid apps – and let us tell you, these paid apps won’t disappoint you.
Besides all the great free apps, the Amazon App Store also offers a huge selection of movies, music, and books. And the prices are lower than those on the Google Play Store.
Lastly, you need an Amazon account to use it.
GetJar is one of the best app stores out there. It has a lot of free apps. You can filter them with categories and subcategories. It’s very similar to the Google Play Store.
This one is not only for Android phones. It has cross-platform support for Windows Mobile, BlackBerry, and iOS. It also comes with Facebook support, likes, and dislikes.
This has earned, without a doubt, its place on this list. Aptoide works with a distributed network of different store providers, and you can find all of them on the Aptoide platform. However, we should mention that it comes with some security risks.
The updates for the app come faster than those on the Play Store. The beta versions of apps are also here, and some apps that are free on Aptoide are paid on the Play Store. This is one of the factors that made users ask themselves where do these apps come from. If you do use one of the third-party stores, there will be pirated software.
In order to use Aptoide, you should be an experienced user who knows how to spot dangerous apps.
This is quite different than the other alternatives. This one has a single goal: to deliver updates earlier than others. If you want to use the brand new features of some of the most popular apps out there sooner than planned, then you should use this one.
We also like this one because it informs you when there are available updates earlier than planned. All the new versions are downloaded from APKMirror, APKPure, or through Evozi from the Play Store. Keep in mind that you need to protect yourself on the internet – it’s not as safe as the Play Store, but it is a right choice if you know how to stay safe. APKUpdater does not come with a search function, and you can only update the apps that you already have on your phone.
