SlideMe Android App Store

Saturday, April 3rd, 2010

For those of us who bought Android netbooks or e-Readers only to discover that we couldn’t use the Android Market, there is a solution. SlideMe offers a mini app store that so far stands out above the others I’ve tried. Compared against the Android Market, the solution offering several hundred apps doesn’t sound so impressive, but if it is the only thing available it is certainly worth trying. SlideMe offers a variety of paid and free apps, the more enticing ones being the paid ones of course.

While it is missing some of the Google Apps only available on the market, there are a couple of apps for Google News and Google Talk. There is even an app that lets you browse for more apps, the SlideMe Application Manager.

Again, this is a really limited app store, but it is better than nothing for those of us without much choice. Check it out and see if it works for you. Hopefully the Android Market will open up for the netbook and tablet users soon.
