How To Download Paid Apps For Free On Android Phones
If you’re an Android user, you’ve probably had the experience of wanting to download an app only to realize that you’ll have to pay for it. It may appear needless if it is only going to be for a one-time event. There are a few ways to get some paid apps without having to pay for them.
The Google Play Store is where most Android users look for apps, but there are other options worth considering if any of the following apply to you. Here are some methods for downloading and using paid Android apps for free.
Aptoide App Store
One of the more popular third-party app stores is Aptoide, which is a direct competitor of the Google Play Store. All you need to do is download Aptoide and you will have access to hundreds of apps that you would typically have to pay for, all at zero cost.
Another app store that you could use is Blackmart, and for this you won’t need to create an account nor pay any money. On this it allows you to sort between paid and free apps, and perhaps more importantly it gives you the possibility of downloading apps that are not available in your country. The idea of Blackmart is to simply test the app, so if you think you will use it a lot, consider buying it from the Google Play Store.
While AppSales is not an official marketplace in the way that Aptoide and Blackmart are, as this informs you which apps are available to download for free at the moment. Think of it as a voucher website, but in this case it tells you when apps have recently been listed as ‘free’.
Paid Apps Gone Free
The option of Paid Apps Gone Free (PAGF) allows you to find and download apps, games, icon packs, wallpapers and more that you would typically have to pay for, but similarly to AppSales it tells you which ones are available for free for a limited time. You will be directed to the UbuntuVibes blog, where you can then download the app, game and so on.
Google Opinion Rewards
Although Google Opinion Rewards is not always a “free” option, you can earn credit on your Google Play account by completing surveys. Fill in enough of these and apps that would normally cost money become ‘free.”.
