ACMarket AppStore – Best PlayStore Alternative

ACMarket is the only unofficial app store to compete directly with the Google Play Store, offering Android users thousands of unofficial apps, games, and other content. Everything is free and, unlike previously, users do not need to root their devices to get it to work. Most of what is in ACMarket has been modified; stock apps have been developed the way they should have been in the first place, with features that users really want. Stock games have been unlocked so there’s no need to purchase the in-app upgrades, many have unlimited lives, coins, gems and more and there are plenty of awesome apps completely free.

Before we look at downloading it, it is worth noting that ACMarket is completely safe to download and use, having been tested at every stage of development. Plus it is monitored continually and any issues that arise are fixed immediately. However, it isn’t possible to test every single app that goes into it and there is a slim chance that a rogue app may find its way in – protect yourself by using anti-virus software on your device.
