5 Alternatives for Google Play Store – Android Smartphones

1.       AndroPps

AndroPps is an alternative App Store for Android that does not impose constraints of compatibility...

2.       Aptoid

Aptoide client is an open source Android application that allows one to install software. The installed software comes from multiple sources called "repositories". Each repository has multiple applications and are distributed over different locations. Repositories contain the latest applications allowing you to control and be notified of updates.

3.       F-Droid

The F-Droid Repository is an easily installable catalogue of free and open source apps for Android. With F-Droid, it is easy to browse and install apps on your device, and keep track of updates. You can also browse the repository with a web browser, and download the app directly from there, if you cannot or do not want to run the F-Droid client on your device.

All applications in the default repository must be Free and Open Source software – for example, released under a GPL or Apache license. Every effort is made to verify that this is actually the case, both by visual inspection of the source, and by building the application from the published source.

Software that reports user activity without permission (e.g. via Google Analytics) or tracks user behavior (e.g. most advertising platforms) is specifically excluded from F-Droid’s own repository, as is software with the primary purpose of interacting with a non-Free network service. You are, of course, free to set up your own repository for this kind of software – the server source is available, and the client will allow addition or removal of repositories as you see fit.

4.       AppBrain

AppBrain is a website, which makes sense out of the high number of apps available in the Android market.
* Discover the best Android apps via search, rankings and categories
* Easily install and manage your apps directly from the web browser
* Sync your apps easily with our native Android app
* Share the apps installed on your phone with your friends

5.       FossGroid

The project's aim is to promote free and open source software on the Android platform. Fossdroid takes its data from F-Droid, but which organizes apps an attractive, Google Play-like arrangement, with the ability to view apps by popularity.
