What are application aggregators?¶
Application aggregators are platforms or services that bring together multiple apps or services into a single platform or interface, making it easier for users to access and use them.
The purpose of application aggregators is to provide users with a convenient and streamlined way to manage their apps and services, without having to navigate between multiple platforms.
Types of application aggregators¶
Apple's App Store and Google's Play Store are examples of app stores that aggregate and distribute mobile apps to users.
Apple App Store¶
The Apple App Store is the default app store for Apple's iOS operating system, offering a wide range of apps for iPhones, iPads, and other Apple devices.
Google Play Store¶
The Google Play Store is the default app store for Android operating systems, offering a vast selection of apps for Android devices.
The Microsoft Store is the default app store for Windows operating systems, offering a range of apps for Windows PCs and other Microsoft devices.

One place for them all. It is easy to find all apps for every platform. AppAgg is the application aggregator for the multiple platforms. This means that the webpage contains all the necessary information about the application, including place to download and price. Website is also surf-able and pleasant to search. Dark theme available.
Users can also signup with the email ( requires the mail confirmation) and save preferred apps in the lists. Confirmation email arrives within seconds, there is no complication around the login or captcha.
Once created, you can set alarms in the list to notify you about the discounts, or you can subscribe to other people lists ( RSS feed available). The website has also a basic profile page, user image is Gravatar.
AppAgg has a repository on Github and account on the Twitter. It can't be really compared, because the two serve different purposes, but AppAgg is similar to Alternativeto.Net but in my opinion much better, especially visually.
All additional app/game information are available, plus you can write or read reviews. Some developers/brands pay their way up to the top on the major app platforms, so it is advisable before placing your trust into anything or anybody, to visit a few alternative places like the AppAgg that offer the unbiased opinions.
