The great advantage of Android regarding its rival operating system, its archenemy iOS, is the freedom that it offers its users to install applications from alternative stores to the official marketplace, Google Play. For instance, you can download applications from the best app store in the world as is the case of Malavida but also from others that aren't too bad either, such as Nine Store. It's the Russian version of 9Apps which you've probably already heard of.
Music, videos, wallpapers, and thousands of applications
By downloading this application, you can access a series of exclusive downloads for your phone, such as wallpapers, music, videos, and obviously, applications. You'll find many of those that are real hits on Google Play, as well as all the trendiest apps, but also those that can't be downloaded from this store and that are also quite successful despite being distributed through alternative application channels. All the latter thanks to its daily recommendation system.
Once you open the application, you'll discover that you can leap from one section to another to discover all its contents from the lower bar of the interface. It comes along with all the following features:
- Video: explore the videos that are in fashion, especially those that have to do with video game walkthroughs on Android. You'll also find trailers, cosplays, and all sorts of contents aimed at gamers.
- Games: it comes along with a section specially dedicated to video games. Browse through all the categories or trust the editor's pick and with which you can discover games that don't appear in Google Play's top rankings.
- Applications: the same as with the games but now for applications. You'll find all the popular apps of the likes of Facebook, Messenger or WhatsApp but also many others that are much harder to find.
- Download manager: manage all the contents that you download from Nine Store.
- Built-in search engine: search for any application, wallpaper or any other element that you want to download from this store by yourself.
- Discover suggestions and apps related to the thins you usually download.
- Receive daily recommendations of apps and games.
As you can imagine, the only way to download the APK of an application of the likes of this store is by resorting to alternative download sites, as Google Play doesn't host this kind of app and never will do either.
