Paying for apps is the best way you can support the developers. But in few parts of the world, online payment still considered as a taboo. For people of those areas, it gets crucial to find other ways to get paid apps for free. One can search and easily find the desired APK on the web. But it would be great if there was only place for all the paid apps to be available for free. In this article, we’re going to discuss about some popular app markets that are completely free. The list is for educational purpose only & I don’t encourage everyone to look at them. Which is the reason why I’m also listing few Completely legitimate ways to get paid apps for free.
Play store currently holds the top position for Android apps. Its the official and the best one with no doubt. To get the best and most updated version, I’d recommend buying from there only. For others, You can check the list here and try and test each one of them to decide the best one.
How to Download Paid Apps For Free On Android
Its a no-brainer that these will be considered third-party apps. Go to settings ► Security ► Tick the checkbox next to the “Unknown Sources” option. This will allow you to install APK files directly (chances are you already enabled it before). Few Phones use custom skins which can make this option lie somewhere else. All of these markets works well but you won’t gonna find all apps in them. Few of them requires extra efforts and complex methods to install. You will know if you have tried downloading from APK sites before. I’d recommend you to search for those apps and do it the old way.
Its the OG in its department. BM offers highly flexible interface which you can re-map according to your needs. It also provide free apps along with the paid ones. You can simply search the desired one or browse using the filters. Mind you that UI ain’t that 2017. If flat colors and material design is your thing then you won’t gonna find it here(at least for now). But everything works perfectly. You can also rate/review apps and see other’s reviews before installing an app.
This one has been around since a while. Back in the java days, it used to be quite popular. In this android iOS era too, its not an usual name in fact you must’ve heard it. There is a version of it on play store but that won’t gonna give you paid apps. There is another one on their website that I’m going to link here. That will be able to do all sorts of good things.
I’ve been using this since 2010, when I had a windows phone. Still works like charm. 4Shared was known to be one of the popular file hosting sites back in the days like megaupload, rapidshare etc. But these days, its mostly popular due to the enormous collection of app apk’s it stores in its database. One could argue that the collection is more vast than blackmart itself. Apart from mobile apps
This one looks cheap. But it does things right. GetApk features a vas collection of apps, bigger than black mart. You will be surprised to see that sometimes even 4shared don’t contain such apps. The design and UI is full of flaws. But the functionality is great. I recommend this. On selecting an app or game to download, it asks you which version in a popup window. Then It will redirect you to a download page.
It like to play safe by providing free versions. But there is another version of mobogenie that stores all kind of paid apps and eBooks. You can install and start downloading all of them for free. App itself is professionally coded and looks great. Don’t get confused with mobogenie PC version, which performs different set of tasks.
Google Opinion Rewards
This app gives you credits to spend on play store on completing every survey. Its not something you might wanna have as it takes time to collect good amounts of cash. You won’t be able to fill surveys just by opening the app. It will notify you when there is one available and then only you can fill it and earn credits. If you don’t spend it within a year, it won’t be valid any longer.
Now you can get Paid apps for free from any of these stores. If you face any sorts of difficulties while trying to get paid apps, do let me know in the comments. Keep that in mind that blackmart sometimes crashes and perform some weird lags. You will have to close and re open it in order to make it work.
