+40 GooglePlay alternatives for publishing your Android app

When people think of Android apps, GooglePlay is the first AppStore that comes to their minds. Most of them even think that there’s only the Google’s AppStore out there.

Depending on your apps, their language, your target audience, etc., some of them can be a great option for you.
