If you wanted to download an application or song from the web, you would go to an online store. These online applications let you purchase items directly through their websites. They often provide free shipping, discounts, and sales. The five most used online stores in Australia are described here, with details regarding app content ratios – real money paid apps and free apps.
Google Play Store
The Google Play store is one of the largest app stores and has around 10 millions apps. It provides access to thousands of Android apps. You can download any Android application or game for free from this app store.
iTunes App Store – Apple’s
iTunes has over 20 million paid apps and over 1 billion songs. With the new iOS 11 update, all iPhones have the same design as iPads and use the same operating system. One of its many benefits is that it allows users to sync between devices so they don’t need to carry separate folders with their apps.
Amazon offers tens of thousands of apps available for free. However, they do require payment after 30 days. The marketplace also offers an unlimited number of paid apps which includes subscription based services like Netflix, Spotify, HBO Go etc. Users can enjoy watching movies online free for 30 days and then pay monthly.
Windows Store – Microsoft
Windows 7 and 8 include pre-installed apps, but if users haven’t installed any preferred ones, they can directly download apps into the device through the Windows Store. Most apps are free to try out for a limited time before requiring payment. Some popular apps include Office Mobile, Skype, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and WhatsApp.
Blackberry launched the World app store in 2011, which gained prominence as an app store for Blackberry when other platforms became overly congested. While not as big as other popular markets, it still contains thousands of high quality apps for Blackberry devices. Users can check out top apps like BBM Video Chat, WhatsApp, Facebook, Snapchat, Instagram, eBay, PayPal, Candy Crush Soda Saga and more.
In conclusion, all these app stores offer a wide range of features. These include price comparisons, user reviews, ratings, screenshots, videos, and much more. A few allow for peer-to-peer downloads while others limit them to certain countries. Many also support different mobile operating systems. What did we miss? Let us know!
