List of Most Important Chinese & Worldwide App Stores for iOS and Android
“What are the most popular app stores in China?”
“Where can I find a list of android app stores?”

Competition in the app store is wild now and sometimes a good strategy can be to diversify a little bit. The Chinese mobile market is predicted to surpass the US in revenue with 5.4 billion in 2015 and the quality of games and apps in Asia is still lagging behind the U.S. It’s easy to be lazy and just settle with Google Play and iOS, but you’re not even coming closing to capturing your potential market.

Codengo will help you submit to multiple of the alternative app stores with one submission, which will help you a lot. Navigating China is still somewhat of a mystery that we hope to address in a future blog post. In the meantime, we’ve decided to list out some of the best app stores and marketplaces for your mobile game / app in both China and the rest of the world. Get localizing!
