Some alternative options
If you are an Android user, you have probably encountered a moment in which you have wanted to download an app but then discovered that you will have to pay it. Sometimes, if it is just going to be for a one-off thing, it might seem unnecessary. Well, there are actually some ways to download some paid apps without paying for them.
The Google Play Store is where most Android users tend to go to find apps, but there are alternatives that are worth checking out if the above applies to you. Here are some ways to download and use paid apps on Android for free.
One of the more popular third-party app stores is Aptoide, which is a direct competitor of the Google Play Store. All you need to do is download Aptoide and you will have access to hundreds of apps that you would typically have to pay for, all at zero cost.
Another app store that you could use is Blackmart, and for this you won’t need to create an account nor pay any money. On this it allows you to sort between paid and free apps, and perhaps more importantly it gives you the possibility of downloading apps that are not available in your country. The idea of Blackmart is to simply test the app, so if you think you will use it a lot, consider buying it from the Google Play Store.
While AppSales is not an official marketplace in the way that Aptoide and Blackmart are, as this informs you which apps are available to download for free at the moment. Think of it as a voucher website, but in this case it tells you when apps have recently been listed as ‘free’.
The option of Paid Apps Gone Free (PAGF) allows you to find and download apps, games, icon packs, wallpapers and more that you would typically have to pay for, but similarly to AppSales it tells you which ones are available for free for a limited time. You will be directed to the UbuntuVibes blog, where you can then download the app, game and so on.
Although the option of Google Opinion Rewards is not necessarily ‘free’, you can get credit in your Google Play balance by filling in surveys. Fill in enough of these and apps that you would typically have to pay for become ‘free’.
