SlideME: Best Appstore in AndroidPit's Independent Review

SlideME was rated best Appstore in AndroidPit's independent review

SlideME is a leading independent curated Android App & Games Marketplace, powering most of the AOSP OEM's preloaded with the SlideME Market, positioning SlideME second to Google Play in terms of global reach for Android Apps and Games distribution.

For device vendors, leveraging the Android Open Source Project (AOSP) that does not include the Google proprietary apps such as Google Play, SlideME has become the de-facto alternative. All apps are curated on SlideME to assure they function on AOSP based devices and not solely dependent on Google Play Services.

Our favourite Android news site, AndroidPit, have curated a list of the best Android apps to date for multiple categories (article available at http://androidpit.com/best-android-apps). You can find the AOSP-friendly apps from that list on our marketplace and of course you can download for free the SlideME Market app (rated as the best alternative to the Play Store) from go.slide.me/sam6apk

Oh, and one more thing that's worth mentioning: the SlideME Market app has already surpassed 100 million downloads (not counting the number of preloads on OEM devices).

Mobile Carrier Payments - Now Available via SlideME


SlideME & Fortumo









SlideME now supports the option for users to pay via Mobile carrier through our partnership with Fortumo. This is an important milestone for SlideME to bring such a payment option at the store level, as opposed to developers having to implement intruding commerce options within each of their apps. Unfortunately Mobile carrier payments, unlike traditional payment options, have different price points for each country. Such price points do not accommodate the exact set price of an app, nor is it fair to users for such an app price to be fixed to the carriers’ price points per country. This means the same app could be more expensive in one country than another. For this reason SlideME has implemented a feature where any overpayment is credited to the user’s SlideME Wallet balance, which can be used to purchase other apps (or in-app items if the app is using the recently released SlideME In-App-Payments SDK or supported Open In-App Billing).


“3rd party Android app stores are becoming increasingly popular and we are excited to work together with SlideME, one of the leaders in this space. By adding mobile payments to their apps published on SlideME, developers can now earn more revenue from almost 5 billion people who do not have or do not want to use a credit card. With carrier billing, they can now conveniently charge purchases directly to their phone bill”

- Gerri Kodres, SVP of Business Development and Carrier Relations, Fortumo

SlideME announces In-App-Payments SDK, Payouts in bitcoins, and new payment methods


SlideME has several key announcements:  

  1. Availability of the SlideME In-App-Payments (IAP) SDK
  2. Developer Payouts in bitcoins
  3. Mobile billing with many more payment methods to come
  4. Users can earn virtual currency to pay for apps or purchase in-app-items
With the release of the SlideME IAP SDK, developers can monetize their freemium apps (i.e., free to download but include the option for users to purchase in-app-items) distributed via SlideME to the many Android Open Source Project (AOSP) based devices without Google Play Services. In-app purchases for users is seamless as they can continue to use our current or new payment options, including purchasing in-app items through their existing SlideME Wallet.


The sheer volume of non-Google Play enabled devices can no longer be ignored by app publishers as more device vendors are leveraging the AOSP, which does not include the closed-source apps and services like Google Play and Google Maps. Developers should have a distribution strategy for apps being distributed to these AOSP based devices .


Today at MWC, we’re seeing Nokia releasing the Nokia X device based on the AOSP, and therefore without Google Play. SlideME as of today is present on the Nokia X, and many other device manufacturers have preloaded SlideME as a respected alternative to Google Play.





Good news for developers today from SlideME.  Developers have the option to be paid out in Bitcoins or to their Coinbase Wallet instantly.
