I noticed that most people here use APKPure which is, as far as i know, an closed source app known for spreading malware from time to time.
I am a bit suprised that Aurora is not the thing everyone uses here. At least in the AOSP community, Aurora is the default.
- Its a GUI for the Google PlayStore (not its own Store). It works with random accounts or you can use an original playstore account and get access to apps you payed.
- Its FLOSS (available from F-Droid)
- The APK are, obviously, the original ones from the Google Play Store and so checked by Googles Security stuff
- It supports Split APK
I highly recommend to use of Aurora for security and compatibility reasons. You can even fake your location to get access to other countries app stores and stuff like that.
