Google Play is the store that currently has the most applications, even more than Apple's App Store. To date, it has almost three million applications, according to statistics from AppBrain and Statista. It is so much content that it is difficult to find what you want and ironically, despite belonging to Google, it does not have a good search system, so it is difficult to find the applications that interest you. Fortunately, finding new applications or the latest ones published in this store is easy. There is a shortcut "New Releases" in the top menu of the Google Play website. Another way to discover recent apps is to use AppBrain..
New releases from Google Play
This "New releases" section is only available on the desktop and mobile web version of Google Play. You can access it from the top menu of the Google Play page, as seen above, or directly with the URL play.google.com/store/apps/new .
There you will find apps and games just uploaded or uploaded to the store, both free and paid. Apparently here only appear the most popular or downloaded in the case of free apps, or the best sellers, in the case of paid apps. Some apps and games listed here may not even really be "new." AppBrain is better and more accurate in this regard..
Unfortunately "new releases" or new releases cannot be found in the Play Store application. However, once you have found an app and are going to install it, you can use the "Open in the Play Store APP" button to install it without having to enter the username and password that the Google Play website asks for each time it is installed. an application, as seen above. In the desktop version you will necessarily have to put your password every time you go to do an installation.
AppBrain APP Market
Despite its name, AppBrain App Market is not really an alternative app store , but just a type of app search engine on Google Play..
To find the new Google Play applications in this app we have the option «Sort» and within «Latest Apps». The "Filter" button allows you to further specify the search, and find only new applications that are free, paid, updated, that have dropped in price or that allow moving to the SD card (App2SD Enabled). The "Categories" button is another way to filter your search and find new applications in a certain category.
Each application listed on AppBrain shows an average rating out of 100, the number of downloads and ratings received.
You can also use the web version appbrain.com to find new applications ordered by the most downloaded in the last 30 days, as well as the most downloaded today. It even allows you to see the most downloaded recent apps by country (although not all countries are listed). By using their website you avoid having to install their Android application or register. Incidentally, the app stopped working after I registered, so I had to close it and reopen it to continue using it.
It is important to note that AppBrain does not host the applications: if you want to install one, it will be redirected to the Google Play page (or Play Store) to install it safely from there.
