Blockchain App Store Aptoide’s Latest APK Update Now Available For Download

News | March 12, 2019 By:

Aptoide, a blockchain-based alternative to Google’s app store, has rolled out version 9.6.6.0 of its Android app store.

Aptoide, which is powered by blockchain-based apps distribution protocol AppCoins, is in the top list of the alternatives to the Google Play Store for mobile applications which runs on the Android operating system. The app is available in over 40 languages, having reached more than 200 million users in 2017 and 6 billion accumulated downloads. In the various stores, it is possible to find over 800,000 Android apps.

The latest android package kit (APK) update does not introduce any new features, but it comes with bug fixes and software tweaks, which will allow users to run the platform without any issues.

To install the latest update, users have to retrieve the APK from the official site. The installation is not available through Google Play Store due to 4.5 Non-compete clause of Google Play Developer Distribution Agreement. This is the same clause that blocks the Amazon Appstore application from being available through Google Play. Installing Aptoide requires users to allow the installation from “Unknown sources” in Android settings.
