Top 13 The Best App Stores for Android Device in {2021}

Google Playstore is the default App Store for many android phones nowadays and even for smart televisions. Still, some of the devices out there which they don’t come up with this google setup since it requires some royalty charges for certification.

Mostly we can see this scenario in android smart televisions which they actually want to skip charges that require certification. In this case, those devices won’t come along with Google play services installed at release.

However, Manufacturers will include them in the upcoming updates if the television hits certain target sales. This is another kind of strategy which marketers follow to decrease the price.

The same thing happens with android smartphones if the country of the device manufacturer bans google, where they want to sell, for example, China.

So, What are the best alternatives for Google Playstore? Is there any third-party app stores available? If you are looking for these questions, then this page is a decent one which will able to deliver some app stores for android based devices.

The Best List of App Stores

Here is the list of App Stores that are working in these days and the developers keep updating with new fixes as well as features. I hope this list could help you to choose the best one for your needs.

Aptoide

Aptoide

Undoubtedly Aptoide is the best alternative for Google Playstore on mainly FireStick and Fire Tv devices since those come with the Amazon Store out of the box. It also supports smartphones, and smart tv’s as well.

The biggest third party android market which lets you download over 700,000 application all over the world. That means it doesn’t have any geo-restrictions. So, access content wherever you want with this safest store.

Aptoide implements the open-source approach where people can contribute something like creating repositories, updating their own apps and deleting.

Overall it is a great application in my case.

Pros
  • Colourful design
  • High-Speed downloads
  • In-App updates
  • Sign up
  • Upload
  • A Separate version for TV’s
  • Root Installations
Cons

Tutuapp

tutuapp-icon

Tutuapp is a well-known android market for premium apps and exclusively supports the iOS platform. Meanwhile, there is a lite variant available for low-end devices to work without any lags. It is kinda GO version according to the google.

There is a VIP membership costs 12.99$ a year. Membership is only available for iOS users which allows them to use the TUTUAPP with No-Ads, priority to play games, service, and access to exclusive games.

Unfortunately, this service is not yet available to android users. What if they start? We start finding the mods from the moment itself 🤣 Isn’t it? Probably that’s the reason.

By the way, TUTUAPP itself offers modified apps by adding ++ at the end like Spotify++, Instagram++ and WhatsAp++. App Store combined with the genuine and modified apps in all categories and the best alternative to Aptoide.

Pros
  • Super cool design
  • High-Speed downloads
  • iOS Support
  • In-App updates
  • Sign In
  • Support 10+ languages
  • Community
Cons
  • Advertisements

ACMarket App Store

ac-market-app-store

ACMarket comes with the great user interface that everyone would fall in love with. Uses the latest Google material design UI, and I really love this app personally. App Store has got popularity because of its modified android apps. Those are completely virus free and malwarefree.

Team priority is to give virus-free apps to users. That is why they tested manually before listing into the library.

They update apps daily as per the latest version from the developer release, and you will be notified when they complete all required security checks.

I think ACMarket looks promissive when it comes to mod apks.

Pros
  • Material Design
  • 600K+ Apps and Games
  • HighSpeed downloads
  • 20 languages supported
  • In-App updates
  • Sign In
Cons
  • Advertisements
  • No iOS Support
  • 21 MB

HappyMod

happymod-app-store

HappyMod is a game-oriented platform which mainly focuses on the cracked and premium stuff. All the items which are published on this app store are checked by the special moderation team. So, there are no worries at all when it comes to the virus or malware.

These guys act as a mediator between uploader and downloaders. As like the above app stores, it also supports normal apps which are not available in the playstore. Kind of all in one android market which mainly focuses on patched games.

Currently, HappyMod has over 300K android applications and games on their servers in all categories. So, users can easily access them without any registration process.

Pros
  • Material Design
  • 300K+ Apps and Games
  • High Speed downloads
  • Make a Request
  • In-App updates
  • Sign In
  • No Subscriptions
  • 7 MB
Cons
  • Advertisements
  • No iOS Support

Appvn

appvn-android-app-store

Appvn supports two platforms right now that are android and web. Previously, it was working on iOS devices because they made iOS app too. But now, they stopped the development due to internal issues. I hope they soon bring this awesome app store to iOS users too.

In my opinion, it is a small app store compared to the ACMarket and HappyMod as it also provides paid apps along with the cracked games.

Pause and resume the APK’s download progress whenever you want. They offered high priority to the security of the users, so the team will check the signature verification of every app that has been listed on the APPVN store.

By the way Minecraft: Pocket Edition is the popular one here on this market. The sad thing is; recently they updated Appvn with the Advertisements.

Pros
  • Fast downloads
  • Decent UI
  • Sign In
  • In-App updates
  • Categorized list in the collection tab
  • 13 MB
Cons
  • Less number of Apps and Games
  • Must Sign Up to download
  • No iOS support
  • Two Languages
  • Advertisements

BlackMart

blackmart-app-store

As the name represents, BlackMarket is an android app store which also provides paid apps along with the generic. The developers are hardly pushing the updates to BlackMarket in these days.

Meanwhile, Play Protect flagged Blackmart as a dangerous one for the android system. Indeed, it is not a dangerous app as it was mentioned by the play protect, but the reason is hosting premium apps.

Yet, Easily everyone can download incompatible apps which were actually restricted by the Playstore based on the geo. And there are no registrations and in-app purchases on this blackmart.

Pros
  • Fast downloads
  • Decent UI
  • In-App updates
  • 5 MB
  • Easily navigate whole
Cons
  • Advertisements
  • No iOS support

Tap App Store

tap-games-store

Tap is formerly known as TapTap which supports android, iOS and even web platforms. A gaming-oriented concept, which unites every hardcore gamer in the world. This is kinda different app store when compared to the given list.

There are users from around the world who can clear your doubts and make suggestions if you participate in the discussions. Definitely, you have to look into this TapTap if you are a hardcore gamer.

The App itself make suggestions based on your previous games that you have downloaded using Tap. All you need is; create an account to take part in the discussions.

Pros
  • Fast downloads

APKMirror

apkmirror-android-market

APKMirror is one of the popular sites bundled with the tons of android apps, games and whatnot. It has a large database, and no other app store can beat this one in this particular aspect and the perfect alternative for Google Playstore.

Indeed it is a script which allows users to download apps from official google playstore. Now, someone unofficially introduces the android application for better user experience.

So, you can download anything (only original apps) and even download some other apps which are not approved by the Playstore.

I recommend using a website to download APK’s from them rather than their android application. I think it is not necessary to keep their app on our android device as every available on the website conveniently.

If you are lazy person, the keep it installed.

Pros
  • Fast downloads
  • In-App updates
  • Upload your apps
  • 2 MB
  • Use external downloaders like ADM
Cons
  • No cons

APKPure App Store

apkpure

APKPure is another website based app store which contains not only original ones but also no-playstore apps. This is the best alternative for APKMirror in the aspects of providing the apps which are not published on theirs.

And of course, it is a very easy procedure to download items on the APKPure than APKMirror. There are no restrictions for ad-blocking and all things.

However, APKMirror APK is also available, and you can install it on your android device by allowing unknown sources.

If you are lazy enough to go to their website, then you better install on your device. So, you can easily access every app from the App Store.

Pros
  • Fast downloads
  • Clean UI
  • Sign In
  • In-App updates
  • Recommendations
  • XAPK Support
  • Upload your apps
Cons
  • No iOS Support
  • Advertisements
  • Sponsored content
  • 12 MB

9Apps

9apps

9Apps is a part of UC Web and provides some crucial android applications like VidMate, UC Browser, and VMate. Without any doubt, these will thoroughly monitor users behaviour online and store the user data on their servers for advertising.

I don’t recommend using any UC Web apps if you do concern about online data privacy. Apart from that, 9Apps is a good app store which contains some non-playstore apps and games.

Also, equipped with themes, wallpapers and stickers.

Pros
  • Fast downloads
  • In-App updates
  • Clean UI
  • 4 MB
Cons
  • No Support for iOS
  • Advertisements
  • Paid and biased content
  • Irritating promotions
  • Recommendations based on your online behaviour

GetApk Market

getapk-market

GetApk is an old android market, and recently the developers released an update. It is one of the decent app stores right now. But we cannot expect many paid android apps as like the HappyMod or ACMarket.

The new build comes with revamped user interface and yet simple to navigate. Minecraft is the most popular game here on this market, and the developers personally will update this game as per the latest builds.

I hope they continue this project.

Pros
  • Fast downloads
  • In-App updates
  • Simple User Interface
  • 7 MB
  • Fast and responsive
  • No-Ads
Cons
  • No Support for iOS
  • A Fewer number of apps and games.

F-droid App Store

fdroid

F-droid is an open-source platform which contains mostly root related apps, and most of them are complicated to understand. The best open source app store for android devices. There are alternatives for most of the google apps such as Gmail, Web View, YouTube and many more.

If you don’t want to track your online presence at some level at least, then the apps which are available in this F-Droid platform are best suitable for you. These are privacy-oriented and source code available publicly on the GitHub.

Pros
  • Super Clean UI
  • In-App updates
  • No Advertisements
  • Open Source
  • No spying apps
  • 7 MB
Cons
  • No Support for iOS
  • Less number of apps
  • Sometimes you may face server issues

Aurora Store

aurora-store

Aurora Store is another open-source android market which acts as Google Playstore client. So, that means all apps which are available in the google playstore also possible here to download.

Doesn’t need any registration and there is anonymous account to hide your activities. I am currently using this Aurora store on one of my android device, which is completely google free running with lineage os.

If you want to get rid off google at some extent, then I recommend you this aurora store to download android apps.

Pros
  • Material Design 2.0
  • In-App updates
  • No Advertisements
  • Open Source
  • All Playstore apps
  • 7 MB
Cons
  • Server issues (common in open source projects)

Final Words

  1. All app stores that you have mentioned in this blog are really great. I still use 9apps right now for various applications in my Android smartphone. I haven’t tried Aurora, F-droid and GetApk App stores yet but I think I can go for them in the future as an alternative of 9apps. But now I get enough content for my android from 9apps. Well, your list of Application store is very accurate.
