Those who own a portable device with the Android operating system are fortunate because they have many applications of all kinds available to install on the internet.

There are tens of thousands of useful applications, tools, and games, most of them are free. They can be installed online or offline without the connection and downloading the applications in APK format with another computer or device.

In this article, we share the main internet sites and services to explore, search, install or download these applications.

The Play Store or Google App Store

The Google Play Store, also known as Google Play, is the main, most popular, and important site to directly search and install Android applications.

We can use the service in two ways: accessing Google Play with the web browser or the Play Store application, which is included in almost all devices.

Using the Play Store application on the mobile, we will obtain various apps that may interest us.

Alternatives to the Google Play Store
