3 Best Alternatives To Google Play Store (Android Market)

As funny or as unimaginable as it may sound, some people do wish they could do without Google products. Google Play Store formally known as Android market is a Google Product and so also is Gmail, Google adsense, adwords etc. Based on my experience with using some services, products or apps on the internet, Google products have always stand out to be the best for me but that’s just me, most people do have a different opinion.

Take for example the android users, Android Market was what the name was called until Google Inc bought it and changed it to Google Play Store, now almost every website giving link to an android app for download always link to Google Play store.

Well, enough of the story, most people still want a way without using Google products and that includes not using or looking for an option outside Google play store.

If you happen to be in search for some cool top alternatives to Google Play store, do sit back and relax, let’s ride together because I have got some for you.
