If you are in a country that doesn't have Google Play, then SlideME is the place for you. SlideME hosts over 30,000 applications from the Android developer community, providing a wide range of selections.
Since SlideME is an independent marketplace, we also host applications from developers that are not able to sell their applications on Google Play due to the Markets country restrictions. SlideME also powers most Android devices that do not carry the official Google Play store.
To get started, just download SlideME's SAM to your device. From the SlideME Market(SAM) client application, you can easily discover applications, browse a gallery of screenshots for an application or even watch a video demonstrating it. There is plenty of room for developer to describe their application, allowing the developer to tell you what the app is really about. In additional you as a user are presented with all the application permissions and requirements if security and compatibility is a concern. Note: Many new features in the newly designed SAM v5.
If you are more into the full experience of web-browsing for applications, you can do this from your desktop. Make sure you have SlideME on your device, then scan the QR code on the website. SlideME will pop up, allowing you to download or purchase the application.
Besides setting up a Billing Agreement once from site and purchasing with ease from SAM, you can also purchase an application web-browsing using the new WebBUY payment option found next to each premium application. Collection of apps though can only be downloaded using the SlideME (SAM) app.
Keep in mind with SlideME, purchases are associated with your SlideME account and not your device, except if developer has opted to lock to a single device at a time. You can always re-download the published purchased applications from your StorageLocker account.
There is lots here and we hope you join SlideME. Do keep in mind if the app you want is not located here, please contact the developer and ask him to publish at SlideME, so you and others can enjoy the application(s).
