    "If you're looking for an indie game, this resource has lots of great options! There are over 6,000 choices for Android! Now, if I wanted a more conventional selection of games this would not be the place to go since it only has indie games. However for something unique and different I could definitely see myself downloading some of these games."

    "Appszoom is a really well put together idea that I don't feel like is super needed. It's cool for what it is, but I can't see a huge use for it as it's basically listing things that are already on the stores. I guess it's nice to have it more organized into categories for you."

    "I sometimes go looking for an app thats not available in my area. So i have to find alternative App Stores. I found 1Mobile why looking for the new Digimon game for me and my kinds. I did find the game. I found it was odd that it had no registration. That started to worry me. The front page shows all the top apps for the month. It's main list is new and updated apps. You can change the main page category. As i said the site and validity was worrying. The site is not secure and there is no telling if the game download or any download has been manipulated maliciously. "

    "iKOiD is an interesting idea. You vote on the games you'd like to be included in a bundle and then the top vote getters end up getting tied together and sold at a discount. The community aspect is what sets it apart from some other stores. They also sell individual apps for regular price."

    "I am often looking for the best Android game stores. One of my favorite game stores is Gamersgate. Unfortunately they don't have a huge selection of Android games. In fact they only have four. While I will occasionally buy PC games from Gamersgate, I did not find them useful for Android games."

    "While it is an android game store it is far from the best. You should not download this an expect a better selection than the google store. This is simply a different store with very few exclusive games on it."

    "Mobango is a decent alternative to android market. The selection isn't as good and you're getting some things that just couldn't make it on the official market, but that's not to say they're necessarily bad. There's a large number of Indian-specific submissions as well, so if you're looking for things like that, check this out."

    "Neat little store. It's growing on me, but I wish there were more offerings. I feel like I'm gonna run out of options sooner than later. If you're looking for less mainstream stuff, you'll find it here. But if you're looking for something really popular, you're in the right spot."
