Aurora Store isn’t just another Play Store clone. It’s a better alternative to the official Google Play Store. The app has been in development for a while and it already supports several features like downloading updates or installing APKs from other sources or creating your own repository of apps that you can share among devices.
The main advantage of the application is that it will allow you to download any paid application without having to pay for it. It also allows you to install unsigned APKs (as long as your device permits) which is another great feature.
Aurora Store was originally created by Rahul Kumar Patel, who has since stopped development on the project. It was then forked by its community and is currently maintained by them under the GitHub repository AuroraOSS.
In addition to being open-source software, Aurora Store also has a focus on privacy, being completely free of advertisements, and relying completely on public APIs (such as those provided by Google) to function. The app also features a dark mode and is available in several languages including English, Russian, Spanish, Portuguese, and German.

Download Aurora Store for Android
Aurora Store is a FOSS client to Google’s Play Store, with an elegant design, using Aurora you can download apps, update existing apps, and do a lot more.
Since it’s a third-party app, there are a few concerns surrounding its use. For example, some users have reported that Aurora Store doesn’t do a great job of verifying apps before they become available for download. This is somewhat true, but it’s not as bad as it sounds — Aurora Store isn’t as strict as Google Play, but you’re still more likely to find questionable apps on the latter than you are on Aurora Store.
First, you will need to download the APK. Then follow these steps:
1. Enable Unknown Sources in Settings → Apps & notifications → Special app access → Install unknown apps (varies by manufacturer).
2. Choose browser or file manager.
3. Install Aurora Store.
4. Open Aurora Store, accept the terms of service and enjoy!
