Important Warning: This post is just meant for educational purposes and written just for illustration. We are not responsible for whatever you do with your knowledge and whatever consequence you face. Piracy is a crime and we don’t encourage it. We respect the app developers and suggest you to buy the apps from Google Play instead.
We will discuss the sources to download android apps independently without redirecting to Google Play. This is called Third Party App Install. To install these apps, you must allow App Installing Permissions from unknown sources in your device settings. Go to Settings > Security and you can find the option somewhere inside it. Check mark it.
So, let’s come to the top markets to grab apps from.
5 Alternatives to Download Paid Apps for Free:
The king of the android market and the best store to download nearly all free and paid apps, Blackmart is a must need for all Android Users who want to taste every android app. The app is also highly customized and user-friendly, having categorical divisions of Android Apps just like you see on Play Store. You can sort apps by Free or Paid, or Just Paid only, helps in case you wanna see the top paid apps. Apps can also be sorted by ratings, bringing you the popular ones to the top.
2. 1Mobile Market:
Another beautifully designed Market, which has a big collection of paid and free apps. New apps are added there manually and you can even find paid apps there. Well, You can see 1Mobile Market on Google Play too, but that version is different version having limited access to only free apps, and always redirects you to Google Play to download them. This is just to not violate the Google Play Terms and Conditions.
We are actually talking about the secret version of it available exclusively on their website and inside the lite version as a free upgrade. Once you download this version, you will get rid of all the limitations. You can browse paid apps and download them directly to your device. This is also one of the beautifully designed apps. If you need a refreshment try this app out.
3. Mobogenie Market:
Quite Similar to 1Mobile concept, this app also had a lite version on Google Play and a pro version with additional features few months ago but it was removed from Google Play as it did a lot of policy violations. Currently the full version is available on Mobogenie website only.
The speciality of this market is that it gives a lot more than just paid apps. It gives you paid ebooks for free, paid music for free, paid movies for free and also allows you to download youtube videos to your device. It also has file managers included, with a junk cleaner built in to clean up your device. That’s not all, it shows a stylish local weather tab on your notifications bar. That’s an all in one package.
This is another brilliant app to get paid and free apps only if you know how to use the app. The app is not so much properly coded and that is why many users cannot find it user-friendly to use. But it has been one of my favorite apps because of a special reason. The reason is that it keeps nearly all versions of the app, not only the current update. So, if you need to downgrade an app to its earlier version, this app is the best app for that.
Now coming to the file downloading rules, which is a bit complex. The apk files are uploaded by many app team members, and they keep adding it as soon as newer updates are released. This also makes it easy to find newly updated apps.
Here’s how to download an app: You need to click on an app to view its page, there you can read its description. If you need it, click GET. Then you will see a white page. This is an in-app browser, which often does not work. So, click on Open in Browser Button to the top right. It will open in your browser and redirect you to linkbucks or adfly link shortener ad. Once you get that, you can now download the file using your browser by skipping the ad.
The whole process is a bit lengthy but helps a lot while finding out older app versions and latest updated apps, new games etc. Overall it is a useful apps for those who want to discover new stuffs. Try the GetApk app out.
5. 4Shared (Free/Pro):
Unknown to many, 4Shared is another great repository to search and download just about anything. Not only just android apps, it hosts windows softwares, pictures, videos, music, pdf files, ebooks and a lot of other stuffs. The files are uploaded here by the users only and shared over the 4shared cloud with the other users. This app is also legal and available as a download on Google Play Store. This is because the app does not promote piracy in general, it publicly hosts the files uploaded by users and makes them available throughout the cloud.
You need to make an account on 4shared to use the app. You can browse, download and upload files. All you need to do to get a file from here is just to search it using the search option, and sort out which type of extension you want as a result. If you are looking for android app, then you can choose apk as extension and search. The disadvantage is that the files can be uploaded by any person, and often people uploads fake files just to spam, with downloader bundles including undesired apps.
4Shared has a Pro version which is Ad Free.
