    "As a former telecommunications employee and user of android smartphones for 8 years, I am always looking for ways to free my phone of network added bloatware and junk but also skeptical of security and quality. This app finally gives me a viable alternative to the play store. It has just about every app without all of the flashiness and annoying prompts. I will use this and recommend it going forward."

    "There should have only been two possible results for this query, and this is one of them. The only other acceptable result would be google play, since I did not specify whether I am an iphone or android user. These are the only real players in the app-downloading game, in my opinion, and I do happen to be an iphone user, so this is perfect."
