How to Create Your Own App Store for Android
Do you want to create your own app store like the Google Play Store? If yes, then this is the right place you have landed. Google Play Store is the most popular app, operated and developed by Google which comes pre-installed on Android devices. It acts as a storehouse of numerous mobile applications that can be easily downloaded by the user directly to an Android device through the Play Store app. It also serves as a digital media store offering music, magazines, books, movies and television programs. Google Play Store features over 2.7 million Android applications which are available to its millions of user through app store either free of charge or at cost.
Play Store consists of lists featuring top apps in each category, including Top Free, Top Paid, Top Grossing, Trending Apps, Top New Free, Top New Paid, Featured (a list of new apps selected by the Google Play team), Editors Choice (a lists of apps considered the best of all the time), Top Developer (a list of apps made by developers considered the best). It is very easy to download and install so many apps by searching and browsing through the above categories. If you already know the name of the app you are looking for to download into your device you can search it rather than browsing through app categories.
How Does Google Play Store Work?
You can simply type the name of the app you are looking for in the search box and tap search icon on your keyboard after that read through the description and reviews of the app to ensure the app seems right for you and then tap install button. The app will download and install itself usually in a few seconds depending on how large or small the app is.
