Placing your app in an app store is of course the next natural step to take after you’ve created your app. We will continue to push Google Play, as this app store remains at present, the largest and most successful app store for Android apps.
There are many other app stores out there, in fact countries like China and Korea don’t even have access to Google Play. If you haven’t heard of an app store, don’t panic, someone else might have and could find your app there. Listing you app on multiple sites will not damage your app, but will increase the opportunity of people finding your app.
Here is our list of the top five Android app stores at present:
1. Google Play
Google Play, previously called Android Market, is the most popular Android app store. What helps makes Google Play so successful is that all Android Smartphones come with the Google Play already installed and therefore it is easily accessible for Android users. With no review process your app can be released into the app marketplace in minutes. The downside to this app store is that is extremely crowded making your app harder to find.
2. Amazon App Store
Another popular and easy to use app store is the Amazon app store. Amazon regularly highlights apps which is a great free advertising tools for you to utilize. We have found that apps are also easier to find in this app store. Amazon does have a review process that reviews and edits app descriptions which can be a bonus if you are not in a rush to get your app out into the market immediately.
With a shorter review process than Amazon and a large user base, the SlideMe Android app store is hugely popular. The competition on Slide Me is not as fierce as on Google Play. Unlike some of the other app stores, you can offer your app for free or at a price.

The downside to this Android app store is that the submission of apps is a long process.
