List of Android App Stores

If you're a developer, you know the importance of getting your application noticed, and your goal is maximum downloads. The best way to achieve this is by publishing your app on Google Play. The Google Play Store has over a million apps and billions of downloads to date. However, Google Play is not the only distribution channel for your Android application, there are actually numerous alternatives to the Google Play Store. Alternative app stores are now becoming too big for developers to ignore. Submitting applications to multiple alternative app stores can increase expected downloads by 200%.
