Aptoide is an innovative way for Android users to share apps with their other users. The app does not require that users complete any kind of registration, which is very appealing to many people. Within Aptoide, users may build stores of their own, which can include apps that might not be widely available but that they would like to share with their friends.

This app features a responsive and easy-to-use interface that clearly lays out the user's options. The user has many options, including tabs for Top Stories, Social Timelines, Updates, and Download Manager. The search function makes it easy for users to type in the name of the specific free app. Aptoide will bring up all available versions of that app and allow the user to choose which version he or she would like. If the you are unsure about what the app does or all of its included features, simply read the app's page that includes a description and all the technical information. User reviews are also included so you can see what others are saying about their experiences.

One of the more useful features included in Aptoide is the rollback option. This allows users who are unhappy with the changes made by an app update to "rollback" to an earlier version they like. The only real negative of this app is quite a large one. There is no filter to weed out apps that include malware and viruses. Users who download apps from Aptoide do so at their own risk.

Pros:

  • Allows users to share apps with others through their "store."
  • Rollback feature lets users remove unwanted updates.
  • Interface is clean and simple.

Cons:

  • App includes no filter so users are at risk for viruses and malware.
