Many people think that Google Play is the only option Android users have for downloading apps. But there are actually quite a few quality alternatives.[br][br]Additionally, if you’ve bought a device that isn’t authorized to run the Play Store, getting access can be very difficult (if not impossible). You’ll have no choice but to use an alternative.[br][br]Frankly, there are many reasons to use an alternative app store on Android.The options below can help you find plenty of great apps even without Google Play.[br][br]1. Amazon Appstore[br][br][br][br]The first and most obvious alternative is the Amazon Appstore. This is probably the biggest contender to the Play Store, as it’s the default app store that ships on all Amazon Fire tablets.[br][br]2. F-Droid[br][br][br][br][br][br]On the other hand, if you prefer Android over iOS because Android is technically open source, then F-Droid is the app store for you. F-Droid doesn’t have anywhere near as many apps as the other options on this list. However, it is the largest mobile app store that features exclusively free and open source software.[br][br]You don’t have to love Linux to find value in F-Droid. By definition, the apps here are all free to use. Not only that, you can have greater confidence that the software doesn’t contain any malware. F-Droid even goes so far as to warn when apps may track your behavior or location.[br][br]Previous versions of this app were abysmally basic. The latest version not only fits in with current Android design guidelines, but it provides categories and recommendations to help you discover apps that do what you need. This is especially valuable because if you’re using F-Droid, you’ll likely have to replace most of the apps you’re used to. We’ve highlighted our favorite open source android apps to give you some ideas.[br][br]3. SlideME[br][br][br][br]SlideME is an app store that ships on many devices that don’t have Google Play. It targets device makers looking to sell in regions that the Play Store doesn’t service very well. SlideME also seeks developers whose apps aren’t welcome on Google Play (though it doesn’t permit apps with adult content).[br][br]The store app that you download to your phone is called SAM, the SlideME application manager.SlideME’s app selection is larger than F-Droid’s, but smaller than Amazon’s. You’ll find more games here than on F-Droid and can avoid the tracking that comes with using Amazon.[br]While SlideME may reach out to areas underserved by the Play Store, the company is actually based in Seattle. Each app is subject to review, so you can expect a certain degree of quality and safety.[br][br]The store’s interface hasn’t seen an update in years, but it’s still functional and easy enough to learn. There are plenty of ways to discover new apps, which is a plus. Selecting an app gives you a download button, description, screenshots, reviews, and a few more options towards the bottom. It’s a fairly standard amount of choices, similar to what you might find in the Play Store.[br][br]However, there is a thin banner advertisement that runs along the bottom of the app sometimes, which is annoying if you accidentally press it.[br][br]4. Humble Bundle[br][br][br][br] [br]As the name suggests, Humble Bundle didn’t begin as an app store. Initially, it offered a semi-regular set of bundles that let you pay however much you wanted for a pack of games. If you paid over a certain amount, you unlocked the full bundle. Plus, a portion of every sale went to charity.[br][br]Eventually, Humble Bundle expanded from a series of bundles into a full-blown app store. The site also sells soundtracks and books.[br][br]But the bundles continue. Some of the early bundles included Android games. For a while, there was also a regular Humble Mobile Bundle that released separately from the main bundle. That practice has ended, but Android games haven’t disappeared. You can still find them within the Humble Store, and you may occasionally see one make an appearance as part of a bundle.[br][br]The Android Humble Bundle app isn’t a complete store. Instead, it’s a hub for downloading apps you’ve purchased and installing the occasional update. The interface is a little outdated, but it still works. The Humble Store may not contain anywhere near the selection found in the Play Store or the Amazon Appstore, but every download is DRM-free. That means you actually own the software you purchase here, which you’re free to download and backup in any way you like.[br][br]Who Needs Google Play?[br][br]If you can’t access the Play Store,  one of these alternative app stores helps you download all the apps you need.[br][br]Meanwhile, if you’re leaving the Play Store because you have privacy concerns, there are other steps you can take to de-Google your Android device.[br][br]
