How to find your favorite paid Android app for free

Free apps? Is this legit?

When Android users try to explain to Mac users why they chose Android, a common reason is that there are substantially more free apps on Android and overall a lower cost of use, and whether that argument is valid or not, it is true.

But what about those pesky apps where developers want you to pay them? Well they should charge for them, talent isn’t free, but if you’re on a tight budget and something looks just sensational but you either don’t want to commit the money or you’re just not sure what an app does, there is a way to get most apps for free.

Enter GetJar which claims to be the globe’s largest free app store with over 2 billion downloads so far.

Doesn’t it seem wrong to get an app for free that you are supposed to pay for? Is this legal. It sure is… over 395,000 developers have registered with GetJar to allow their apps for free and in exchange, GetJar puts ads on or in the app which is how the developers get paid.

There’s nothing illegal or unethical about it, and if you can stand an ad in your app, GetJar is any budget-conscious person’s dream!
