Google’s Android mobile operating system is the most widely used of its kind in the entire world. This is because most phones operate on it, of course. But Android is also an excellent mobile OS and one that has certainly stood the test of time. And just like with its longstanding rival iOS, Android’s dedicated app marketplace is what makes it tick. We’re talking about the Google Play Store, of course. The Google Play Store is for Android what the App Store is for Apple and what the Microsoft Store is for Windows and so on.
To sum it up, the Google Play Store is the place where you as an Android user find anything you might need to install on your mobile device for either functional or purely entertainment purposes. But what if we told you that the Google Play Store is not the only such marketplace for Android out there? Although Google would have you believe otherwise, there are also alternatives out there, and one such alternative is Aptoide.
Aptoide is another kind of Android marketplace that operates under different principles and laws of functioning. ‘Laws’ is too steep of a term actually, but for lack of a better alternative, we’re just going to stick to that for the time being. Circling back to Aptoide, the marketplace is an outstanding substitute for the Google Play Store because it is not a singular and centralized store, but rather a personally managed retail outlet.
This means that Aptoide is a personalized approach to the inherent and undoubted stiffness of the Google Play Store. However, Google wouldn’t want you to use Aptoide. Which is exactly why you should try it out. Aptoide is a great alternative for Android users to get their apps from.
