AndAppStore is pretty plain and small. You can access the store through the AndAppStore client, which you can download by snapping the QRCode to the right. You may also visit it in your browser as a non-mobile website.
The interface is very straight forward with tree arrainged categories and subcategories. Browsing can be a bit annoying, however, because the menu always returns to the main tree categories instead of returning to the subcategory menu, which means there is a lot of extra clicking involved and rediscovering your browsing place.
Another downside to the AndAppStore is that many apps that you would expect to be in an Android market are not present, such as common web browsers.
There are some bright spots!
AndAppStore seems to be the type of place to discover underrated and under promoted jewels. There is a rating system that is clearly in its early authoritative stages, but the system is in place.
A few particular items that I really like about AndAppStore is that all of the apps on the market are free. Downloads are extremely simple. AndAppStore does not require accounts, logins, hula performances, or any other annoying hurdles. You just press “Download” and that is exactly what happens- Bam!
