  • Aurora Store

    Free Android Android Tablet F-Droid Website

    Aurora Store is an unofficial, FOSS client to Google's Play Store with an elegant design. Not only does Aurora Store download, update, and search for apps like the Play Store, it also empowers the user with new features.

    For those concerned with privacy, Aurora Store does not require Google's proprietary framework (spyware?) to operate; It works perfectly fine with or without GooglePlayService or MicroG. However, those still reliant on those services are welcome to use Aurora Store as well!

    While Aurora Store was originally based on Sergei Yeriomin's Yalp store, v3.0 is a clean & complete rewrite from scratch that follows Material Design and runs on all devices running Android 5.0+.

    Features

    Free/Libre software
    -- Has GPLv3 licence

    Beautiful design
    -- Built upon latest Material Design guidelines

    Anonymous accounts
    -- You can log in and download with anonymous accounts so you don't have to use your own account
