If you are looking right now for an alternative marketplace for apps that works with the Android OS, then you must take a look at Aptoide. Unlike the Google Play Store which is the default service, Aptoide 18.104.22.168 will allow each user to manage their own store. On the other hand, Google Play represents a centralized and unique store.
Coming in several versions, Aptoide is available for smartphones and tablets, while Aptoide TV works great for STBs and TVs and Aptoide Kids or Aptoide VR are ideally designed for the devices found in the hands of your kids.
Aptoide got its name inspired from the Debian package manager called ‘APT’ and the last syllable comes from ‘Android’. This alternative marketplace is available in over 40 languages and just in 2017 alone it was used by over 200 million people while the number of accumulated downloads reached and exceeded 6 billion. Inside Aptoide’s various stores you can find a range of apps, their number reaching 800,000.
As we already mentioned, Aptoide is an Android client that acts as an alternative marketplace. It will allow you to search, browse and install apps on your Android device. In order to get this app on your phone you will have to access its official site or mirror sites to download the APK.
That’s because its presence on Google Play Store isn’t allowed due to a non-compete clause, the same one which was used to block the Amazon Appstore. Before you install Aptoide you will have to allow the installation from ‘unknown sources’ found inside your Android settings.
After you are done with installing it, you can open it and add stores. Besides the apps that come with the default store, you can find many others available through other stores.
