    Android App Sites?

    So I finally was able to order a cheap Coby Kryos tablet, and it arrives tomorrow. So what I need now is to find sites similar to the app sites that offer free (bootleg, whatever you want to call it) apps (like torrent sites, but for Apps). I know of a couple where I get free (angry birds) apps for my phone, but none for Android apps. Anyone have any fave sites?

    Re: Android App Sites?

    As you are aware, one of the great benefits of Android is that it does not tie you to a single source for software (as do Apple and Microsoft). You are free to install alternative software and even alternative app stores. Even the paid software is generally not that expensive, however, (typically just a few dollars per app), so pirating Android software is not a sport on torrent sites, to my knowledge.

    The standard (and by far the largest) Android app store is the one maintained by Google itself, called "Google Play." Google Play has tens of thousands of free apps available - so many that most people don't feel the need for any other source of free software.

    The second biggest Android app store is the Amazon Android store. Amazon offers ~40,000 Android apps, a great many of which are free. Amazon's free apps are made available in a most annoying way, however. Rather than just let you download the free stuff to your device (like Google Play), Amazon requires that you have a credit card to "purchase" the free stuff. You "buy" the free apps for $0.00 each, and a free "charge" is actually processed to your credit card account. (I once got a bill of $0.00 for eleven Amazon Android store purchases of $0.00 each!).

    Probably the third biggest Android store is one called "GetJar." GetJar is not as big as Google or Amazon, but it does offer many thousands of free Android apps.

    There are many other alternative Android software stores. "MiKandi," for example, is an all-porn store for Android. You just surf to the MiKandi site from your device's browser and download "MiKandi Market." I don't know if MiKandi offers any free stuff, but I would be surprised if it does not.

    A majority of Android devices allow you to install any of the alternative app stores. The situation is not straightforward, however. Amazon's own version of Android (used on the Kindle tablets) blocks you from connecting to the Google Play store. (Presumably, Amazon wants to tie you to their own store in the same way that Apple and Microsoft tie you to their own respective stores). A few alternative Android device manufacturers (like the Chinese Ainol Novo tablets) have worked out agreements with Amazon whereby they use Amazon-locked versions of Android on their devices that will tie you to Amazon's app store (i.e., no Google Play for you!). Also, the Google Play store may block you from connecting to it from "rogue" devices running versions of Android of which Google does not approve.

    Your Coby Kyros appears to default to GetJar as the primary source of software. It appears to lock out Google Play, which is most unfortunate. The Kyros appears to be easily rooted, however. You may want to consider that, if you are not satisfied with GetJar, and want access to lots of free software.

    Apart from the Android stores, you can also install software on an Android device by "sideloading" it. You transfer the software from your desktop computer via usb or Bluetooth. You then navigate to the software package from your device's file manager and install it.
