MoboMarket Lite hands-on: Download free apps and games from this Google Play alternative
This story is sponsored by Moborobo. PhoneArena's opinions in this article have not been affected in any way!

For the great majority of Android users, Google Play is the only virtual marketplace where apps and games can be obtained from. And that should come as no surprise since Google's service is hardwired into every brand-name Android device. Few people know, however, that there is a number of alternatives to Google Play, and with this article, we'd like to introduce you to one of them.

The third-party app store that we're bringing under the spotlight is called MoboMarket Lite. Why should you even bother trying that instead of sticking with Google Play? Well, it does have a number of advantages over Google's marketplace. For starters, you can use MoboMarket Lite without the need for a Google account (or any account, for that matter), plus you can download multiple apps simultaneously! But what the service truly aims to stand out with is its app curation skills – its ability to pick apps that are really worth trying, or apps that the user is likely to be interested in. That was enough of a reason for us to take MoboMarket Lite for a spin on our Android smartphone. 

MoboMarket Lite hands-on: Download free apps and games from this Google Play alternative
MoboMarket Lite is available as a free download from the Google Play store.

Soon after launching the app we realized that MoboMarket Lite wasn't offering us any paid apps; only free and freemium software was available in its library. This doesn't mean, however, that there aren't enough apps and games of good quality to pick from. Quite the opposite – we see plenty of noteworthy titles there ready to be downloaded.

As for the app's interface, browsing MoboMarket Lite's selection of apps is a pretty straightforward process. Software is organized in sections, with tabs dedicated to apps, games, and device personalization. The Focus tab is where the newest, hottest, and most popular apps are listed. Apps and games are also grouped in collections and categories depending on their type and genre, which makes finding apps you're interested in much easier. We like how each app has a large "Download" button next to it for instant installation. If you happen to not be connected to a Wi-Fi network, the app will remind you that downloading an app will eat up your data, which is nice.

MoboMarket Lite is worth checking out if you feel like Google Play and its app suggestions aren't exactly your cup of tea. And while this custom app market isn't here to completely replace Google's own app storefront, MotoMarket Lite certainly seems like a neat proposition that can make it easier for users to find and download great apps and games. And yes, it does get its job done well, so feel free to give it a shot!
