AppChina is the go-to marketplace for Chinese apps. In other words, it’s an app store. Formerly known as Qiuqiu, this is free to download. It’s worth noting that even though it defaults to Chinese, the program can be used in other languages including English.
For non-Chinese users, it may be necessary to download a language pack for the app to function correctly on your Android device. For similar apps, you can check the Google Play Store or Huawei AppGallery.
Discovery engine for Android
AppChina, an app discovery engine, is a low-cost way to explore Chinese apps of all types. Similar to Hack Market, this one focuses on Chinese apps in particular. More importantly, users can find apps that they are unlikely to find on engines that cater to Anglo audiences.
There’s also a broad diversity of apps that range from health to finance and business. Like Playstore, this program utilizes user-entered keywords to prioritize the search algorithm.
Users will find this tool easy to use due to the clean and accessible user interface. Not to mention, there is a large range of apps that are usually available at cost, but through AppChina they're for free. These demo apps will have fewer features but will still be functional and usable.
How to get it started
AppChina is easy to download and use. Some users will need to check that their device is ready to accept the app. Check your settings to ensure your device will accept an unknown source. You should also look in your Security folder if the app does not appear on your desktop after download. Install the device and open it.
You don't have to jailbreak your Android device to operate this application. In all, the process should not take more than a few minutes.
AppChina for all Androids
AppChina is technically for everyone, but especially for Android users. The program makes recommendations to its users based on indicators like location, time, and history. As such, users will find that this application becomes personalized with use. Anyone looking to expand their search for new and exciting apps should consider trying it out.
Just note that the non-Chinese versions of AppChina, including English, are not translated well. As a result, some language and phrasing will reflect that.
