Palmstore is a free-to-access appstore designed specifically for use by people in Africa. It aims to offer everything that its target audience could require from an appstore, all placed within a single location. A variety of apps and games can be downloaded here, but Palmstore also includes videos (similar to YouTube) and ebooks (with a particular focus on comics, similar to Manga Geek) for those interested in African media.
The appstore is easy to navigate, with a clear menu that allows you to flip between different types of media, and you are also able to view apps in terms of featured downloads, popular downloads and categories.
A wide variety of apps and games
The main attraction of Palmstore is the apps it has to download, which are divided into two main sections: general apps, and games. Here, you will be able to download popular apps like WhatsApp, Facebook, Among Us and Candy Crush, but you will also be able to browse around until you find something more niche. Both sections have their own category lists: for example, on the apps page you can choose between art and design, business, beauty, social media, food, sports and many more.
Videos and ebooks
Also notable are the sections for videos and ebooks, which separate Palmstore from many rival appstores. The video section is divided into movie clips, TV episodes, and a general "skits" section that includes comedy sketches, sporting highlights and more, all accessible with a few clicks. The ebook section consists mainly of PDF copies of African comics like Hero Kekere and Might of Guardian Prime, which should be appealing to any fans of comics who are using the app.
A quality source for African apps and media
For anyone looking for a general appstore or a video and ebook source geared towards African content, Palmstore will be worth a look. It pulls together a broad range of content that is made available in a single place, so users may well find themselves checking it for updates as part of their daily schedule.
