Best App Store Alternatives for iPhone & iPad

Apple’s App Store is the go-to place to find and download apps for iPhone and iPad, but it also has a number of limits. Some restrict users from installing their wanted apps and games.

For example, if your favorite app has been removed from the App Store, then you cannot get it back. Or sometimes, a trending game has just been released, but unfortunately, it’s not available for download in your country and you cannot install it.

To resolve such problems, you can turn to other app installers in this article.
