One of the things that I appreciate about Android is the freedom to choose. When selecting an Android handset you can choose the device form factor, screen type and size, launcher, keyboard options, manufacturer even custom roms.

Besides hardware choices we have the freedom to install software from whomever or wherever we choose. Besides the official Android Marketplace which continues to improve there are two other App Store that have found their way onto my phone, the Amazon AppStore and GetJar.

This is a quick look at GetJar a third party AppStore that features a selection of paid Android Applications for free download. To download the GetJar AppStore to your phone go to m.getjar.com on your phone, select quick download at the bottom of the screen and enter the code they provide.

Once installed, you will be greeted with an easy to navigate screen with clearly labeled categories that highlight the most popular selections of apps and games for your phone.

One of the product categories available within GetJar is called ‘GetJar Gold Apps’. It’s a curated collection of paid applications currently over a $100 retail value available for free download with new content added regularly.

Sourcing your applications from more than one location adds a layer of complexity when it comes time to managing updates. You have to update the applications from within the store they were downloaded from. Is it worth the extra time and trouble? You’ll have to decide that for yourself. As for me, I like to have choices.
