Many people might not have heard of this store before but it is one of the best independent ones out there. The overall interface and menu system is designed very well. It allows for an effective category and sub-category system to find your content through aimless browsing. So RPG is under Games and FTP client is under the Internet categories. You can also browse categories to find recently updated apps, recently added, rating and price. One of the biggest boons on this store is that you can filter out applications and games according to language so you will not get pesky localized versions popping up.
If you are not sure on what application you should purchase if one looks good, you can pay attention to the editoral reviews by the POCKETGEAR team. They give an unbiased review on many applications. The website also handles all of the payment processing so you are not directed to a third party you don’t know, and may not trust. When you purchase content the app will send you a text message or email with a link to the APK file for you to download and then automatically installs.
There are only around 7,000 apps currently available on this market but it is a strong viable contender to one of the top independent Android markets around. Finally not only can you get Android apps here but also Windows Phone 7 and many other types.
