If you’re an Android user, then Google Play Store is definitely your number one choice for downloading apps. But did you know that Google Play Store is not the only app store out there that has some neat features? Even if they might not be as safe as Google Play Store, these alternatives are worth looking-into. Here is a list of the safest ones to download:

AppsBrain is definitely a must app store, especially if you want paid applications to be yours for free. There are app developers that are willing to publish their apps on AppBrain, free of charge just to make them known to the general public. The interface is also pretty good as you can see the apps being rated by random users and there is also a large AppBrain community you can join.

Amazon Appstore is packed with more than 0.4 million cost-free applications, but you also get paid ones. You will love this one as its interface mirrors the Google Play Store and because the applications are ranked, you will have no trouble finding the one you need. Bonus: This app gives away one paid application which can be downloaded for free on a daily basis.

Aptoide comes with really neat apps and it also offers paid Google Play Store apps for free, if you have the time to watch a few ads. Once the applications are downloaded, the app store will also offer the necessary updates.

Getjar is the perfect app store for Android smartphones and it also has its apps categorized. It also has its own “Appday” meaning users will receive paid applications for free. The only minus, is that if you want to download a free app you will have to complete several inquiries or even watch one or two advertisements.

To remember: Just make sure that before installing such third-party apps, you activate the installation from”unknown sources”. Go to Settings, then Security and then select the prompt where it says “unknown sources”.
