Google Play Store

The Google Play Store is the one stop shop for all Android apps. Just like the Android platform itself, the Play Store has come a long way. All the other competing app stores for Android have almost all disappeared from the platform because the Play Store has gotten just that better.

New Play Store UI has been spotted, one that changes the app listing screen a lot. You now get a bigger, almost display-width, sized Install button, while there is a new presentation style for the ratings and reviews widget, app size, content rating, and finally, number of downloads.

You can get rid of this problem by installing Google Services Framework, Account Manager, Play Services and Play Store in your device. This pathway will let you download the official APPs without interrupting your device’s security. You can download all these apps from the below links.


Simply clicking on the downloaded file would begin the installation, but you may have to enable the ‘Unknown sources’ installation in the Settings first.

That’s all! You can now enjoy downloading the applications from the stable Google Play Store alongside getting features of the Google Service Framework, Google Account Manager, and Google Play Services.
