Looking for apps for your Android but have no Play Store? The Chinese users have been using their own App Store called “Tongbu” APK to download and enjoy apps instead of Play Store. If you are in a country like China and you cannot access the Play Store at all, this may be one of the ways you can use to download apps.
Most apps on Tongbu APK are apps found on the Play Store and you may be able to grab apps in a country that Play Store is not support or perhaps you have a rooted Android phone with no Play Store. Note, this app is in 100% Chinese, you may want to use an OCR-scanning device to translate the language to English to use. If not, you should still be able to browse Tongbu in random fashion.
If you have used Tongbu APK before, be sure to share you experience with others in the comment box below, thx!

How to Install APK Files
You will need to make sure Unknown Sources is checked ON in Settings to install APK files. We do recommend you to use a file explorer app such as ES File Explorer, available on the Play Store for free, to install these apps.
