The Google Play store is the default repository of apps to download and install apps on Android mobile devices, but there are more apps that may not be available in your region or excluded from the Play store from time to time due to its policies and restrictions.
This limitation prompts several third party stores to rise up in the marketplace. Besides adding apps from Google Play, third party stores have an advantage to cover apps without region restrictions and those apps that are otherwise only available from the developers' website, such as TubeMate.
Here we review Aptoide, which is one of the popular third party stores and reportedly hosting more than 900,000 apps with almost 200 million users.
The store lists the apps you've installed on your device, recommends editors' choice of apps and lets you search for more apps from within the store. Moreover, it allows you to share your favorite apps with the Aptoide community.
This store app is only available from outside the Play store. You will need to enable settings in the Android system to allow for installing apps from the "unknown" source.
