Originally known as the Android Market, launched by Google in 2008, the Android operating system’s main app store was subsequently transformed into a part of the Google Play store – alongside Music, Movies (and TV), Books and Magazines.
The Google Play Apps area is packed full of categories to explore, and if you’re looking for a particular app then you can search for it quickly and easily using the integrated search engine. Buying apps is just as straightforward as purchasing any other media through Google Play: one click and your app will start downloading
. You can either download apps to your desktop and transfer them to your mobile device, or you can simply access Google Play on your Android device and then download and install the app on the fly.
