However, there are a couple of tips and tricks for the Play Store that only experienced Android users know about. These tips and tricks can help people become better at shopping for apps and games. Luckily for you, today we are going to share with you the top three hidden tips and tricks that will make it easier for you to find the right apps and games on the Play Store.
How to Shop Better for Apps and Games
- The Best App Reviews
Don’t you hate it when you are trying to read reviews about an app that interests you and the only reviews that pop up are saying nonsense? The good reviews are hidden “deep” so that users can’t read anything about the said app’s bugs or similar problems. Fortunately, the reviews can be filtered by tapping on the “Option” feature next to “Read All Reviews” and then toggling the “Latest version only” option.
- Region-Blocked Apps
Another annoying thing about downloading and installing apps from the Google Play Store is not being able to get access to specific apps because of region restrictions. Well, this issue can be avoided completely by using a VPN service.
- How to Keep a Clean UI
If you don’t like that newly downloaded apps are automatically creating an icon on your smartphone’s UI, then you should be pleased to know that this can be avoided by tapping on the Settings menu in the Google Play Store, heading over to the Settings panel, accessing “General” and then unchecking the box for “Add icon to Home Screen”.
