Alternatives to Google Play Store for all platforms with any license

  • F-Droid

    F-Droid is an installable catalogue of FOSS (Free and Open Source Software) applications for the Android platform.

    • F-Droid is like Google Play Store but it hosts only open source apps. This has 2 main advantages: 1) It allows you to install software on phones without requiring a Google account (e.g. on Cyanogenmod). This has privacy benefits. 2) the code for all the apps can be inspected for security and privacy weaknesses/violations. JohnFastmanDec 2016 • 20 agrees and 11 disagrees Disagree   Agree

google market needs these four categories:

open source

adware is malware
rendering ads is malware
spyware is malware
sending SMS to premium numbers secretly is malware
uploading one's phone book to app dev server is malware (kik messenger buries this factoid)

As it going to charge $40 to install, probably time to change it from Free to Commercial.
