Companies like Apple, Google, and Amazon go to great lengths to make sure that the apps available through their platforms meet various standards, but that leaves a lot of apps that still have appeal out in the cold. TutuApp is an unofficial app store that allows users to sideload apps that they would not normally be able to access through the official stores.
In the same way that SideQuest allows users of Oculus Quest VR devices to sideload apps, TutuApp enables users to install apps and games from unauthorised sources. It also does not require rooting, so apps like KingoRoot are not required.
More choice… at a price
Other times, however, the reasons can be perfectly justified, such as an app being poorly developed, malicious in nature, or just not good. Using TutuApp, a user will gain access to a wealth of previously unavailable content, but they will also have to muddle through a lot of bad apps to find the good ones.
A valuable tool for users who know how to use it
While there are undoubtedly useful apps that cannot be found on official app stores, the risk that comes with opening your device up to non-curated sources is not one that should be underestimated, especially if the user in question is not a particularly tech-savvy one.
If you know what you are doing, TutuApp can be a great tool for finding previously unavailable apps and games that are incredibly useful. But, despite not requiring you to root your device, there are still many security concerns to be raised, and an inexperienced user could easily damage their device or compromise their personal data with this app.
