This is the original.  The site is well laid out.  Easy to search.  Visually appealing.  Down the left side of the site is a quick listing of top apps from free, paid, grossing, and top new paid.

Handmark
When I think of Handmark, I think of a company in the application creation business.  But they are also now an application delivery company.  The main view on their site is by top recommendation and you get category views as well.

Handster
At the Handster app store you can quickly browse for apps by categories. Or you can do a quick search.  Like most stores  you can look at apps by various popularity categories as well.

Phoload
Phoload has two things that make it stand out from the crowd.  First it is a community based site and depends heavily on its users to rate apps.  Second it’s a totally free application store.

PocketGear bills themselves as the world’s largest Android apps download marketplace.  And this very well may be true.  PocketGear has been around for a very long time.  PocketGear like most other sites give you the ability to search and offers views of top apps in different areas.
