Blockchain App Store Aptoide Rolls Out New APK Update

Announcements, News | February 26, 2019 By:

Blockchain app store Aptoide has realesed a new android package kit (APK) update with minor enhancement.

Aptoide, an alternative to Google’s Play Store powered by blockchain-based apps distribution protocol AppCoins, is boasting more than 30,000 apps, including some that are not available on the Google Play Store for violating Google’s policies. It also allows developers to advertise their apps to the users. From every advertising investment inside the Aptoide app store, 85% goes to the user.

Aptoide’s latest APK update, version 9.6.5.1, doesn’t introduce any new features, but offers improvement on the platform’s performance by introducing a number of software tweaks and bug fixes. It is targeted at smartphones that run on Google’s Android 7.1 Nougat operating system, but it can also be installed on a minimum of Android 4.0.3 Ice Cream Sandwich.

Since the app is not available in the Google Play Store due to a non-compete clause, users will have to download the APK from Aptoide’s official site, or from mirror sites. To install the latest version, users will have to enable the “Unknown Sources” option from the smartphone’s settings panel.
