App distribution platforms to launch your ecommerce apps

To reach your target users, you need to list your app on a mobile app store. Here’s how you can decide which one is best for you 👇

Google Play Store

Release your mobile app on the Google Play Store, the world's largest app distribution platform, and target Android users.

Apple App Store

Launch your iOS mobile app on the Apple App Store, the world's second largest app distribution platform, and target iPhone users.

Amazon App Store

By listing your app on the Amazon Appstore, you’ll reach a smaller total addressable market (TAM) than the Google Play Store. But you’ll get bigger financial incentives from the platform itself.
