If you are an Android user, there is no way that you can avoid the Google Play Store. You will inevitably get to use it when you will download an app or a game. While it is extremely simple to download apps from the Google Play Store and you won’t need tips for that, we do have some tricks that should improve your experience. Let’s take a look.
Install apps that are not available in your country
Sadly, not all apps are available everywhere. If you live in a smaller country, you might miss out on many apps. However, this does not mean that it is impossible to download them. You just need to use a VPN service.
A VPN will help you bypass regional restrictions. It will make you look as if you are from another country. However, when you use a VPN make sure that you use a reliable one. Once you download one, you will be able to access the country you want to “use”.
If your child has an Android phone you might want to make sure that he or she can’t access inappropriate apps. For example, violent games or dating apps should be avoided. You can easily put a parental lock on the Google Play Menu. Just head over to Settings and go to Parental controls. Turn them on and set a PIN. Then you can choose the restrictions that you want for the Google Play Store.
Not all apps are great and sometimes you might need a refund. You can easily get it. Open Play Store and go to the app from which you want a refund. You should see a Refund option there. If you tap the button within two hours of your purchase you will get your money back.
