Are you an Android developer who publishes your applications on Google PlayStore just like me? Well, almost like me, because recently a Google bot had the good idea to delete all my applications that were published in the PlayStore, it also closed my Google Publisher account for an unknown reason.
If you don’t know the story I’m talking about yet, I invite you to check out my article on this subject: Google has shut down my activities.
Rather than fighting a “ghost” company like Google and also because I don’t advise you to put all the eggs in the same basket, here are the 3 best alternatives to Google PlayStore to publish its applications.
The 3 best alternatives to Google PlayStore
AppGallery (Huawei) is an alternative to Google PlayStore. Huawei has also been banned by Google and also has his own store.

Waiting time to publish your application: 2 to 5 days

Catappult is another alternative to Google PlayStore. Catappult is part of Aptoide for those who know, basically to publish your applications on Aptoide you now have to go through the new Catappult backoffice.
The developer account is validated quickly, on the other hand the customer service is not the fastest to answer you (about 1 month), if you have any questions I advise you to contact them via Linkedin you will get a faster answer.
Waiting time to publish your application: several weeks up to 1 month

Amazon Apptsore is the 3rd alternative to Google PlayStore. In a few words, reliability, efficiency and speed.
They are very easily reachable in case of a problem (Google should take an example), they also answer very quickly and if you ever have an application that is refused, just send an email to Amazon specifying the content and operation of your application so that it validates it without problem.
Waiting time to publish your application: during the day
