Getjar has been around since app stores really existed and continue to deliver with quality content. The store claims it is the worlds second largest app store next to the Google Android Market. Not only does GETJAR supply Android apps but you can also get listed apps and games for Blackberry and iOS. Speaking of iOS you cannot purchase or download things from GETJAR but it does supply a link to the official listing by Apple.
The GETJAR website is organized mainly into app categories and does not really feature any sub-categories which makes finding particular things a little bit of an adventure. You can only search by New Apps, Top Apps and apps that will work with your e-reader or tablet according to your particular version of Android.
One of the drawbacks of this store is the fact that Top Apps is anything but, there does not seem to be any kind of system in place to index the best ones from the worst ones. It does not take into account star ratings or user feedback.
This store has plenty of apps and you can easily find anything you want here, but is limited on the top tier quality applications and games found on the Google Android Market.
