Brief Description of App Store
Previously, the term App store is confined to Apple Inc. for iOS apps . But recently it has been found that the term App Store can be taken as a general term as this vocabulary word is more descriptive than to associate it with a single brand.
Now App Stores have become a nonspecific name for any online platform that sells apps. Some popular App Stores are Amazon’s App store for its Kindle and Android- devices, the Android Market for Android apps, Blackberry’s App World for Blackberry devices and Google Play Store.
