A ban on the use of Google services in the new smartphones Huawei has forced the Chinese manufacturer to look for an alternative. However, a brief search led to the fact that Huawei decided not to rely on a third-party company, and prepare everything you need. Because, as you know, I want to do something well, do it yourself, even if I have to spend a lot of time and money. However, the AppGallery application directory, which will replace Google Play, on future Huawei devices, already feels quite nice.
Despite the fact that I have long used the smartphone Honor, I opened AppGallery twice. First, when I bought the unit. Then I was curious to see what this platform is and how it’s viable. However, I was disappointed. The vast majority of apps I used to use on Android, was not there. The second time happened today, to see has anything changed for the months that I visited the directory and I have to admit, changes have occurred abound.
What apps can I download from AppGallery
Most important, in my opinion, the change that occurred with the AppGallery, was a multiple expansion of the range. If before there was not almost any application known to me of the developers, today, their number has increased quite significantly. Now I can easily download from AppGallery mobile client Qiwi wallet application for almost all services banks Tinkoff and Raiffeisen, all apps in the Yandex app popular service in Moscow car-share, taxi and some of the retailers like Pyaterochka or delivery services like Tanuki, Dodo-pizza and Delivery Club.

It is still not enough to meet the demands of all users without exception. In the end, many banking apps in the AppGallery is still missing. For example, the area represented by mobile clients of Sberbank, Alfa-Bank, VTB and many others. Interestingly, the app “Thank you from Sberbank”, is designed for counting and control of the accumulated loyalty points, there still is. As it turned out, hard to say. However, the presence of at least one application from the savings Bank gives reason to believe that soon will appear in the AppGallery and main Bank customer.
How to run apps without installing
However, Huawei has not only limited by the expansion of the range of AppGallery. Recently, the company added catalog support for Deep Links, which allows you to run the smartphone without any apps installation. Of course, this requires that the developer have optimized their software accordingly. But, according to Huawei, it takes no more than three days, because the app is running in the mode of Deep Links, uses no more than 20% of the software code underlying it. In this mode, the application can not only work, but also to update in the background without requiring user intervention and without burdening the device.

It’s obvious that Huawei wants to make AppGallery is applicable not only in China but in other countries, where previously the company used Google Play. After all, if she again will take away access to the services the search giant, it will again have to incur huge reputational and financial losses. So, I decided to Huawei, it is better to have an alternate aerodrome at which it will be possible to land in case of an accident, which, given the harsh nature of the US President, can occur at any time.
