App Store and Google Play Store are the sources that allow you to download any mobile application on your phone. Google Play Store is used for Android whereas App Store is used for iPhone devices. Google Play Store is not the only source of applications as it allows you to download any application directly from the browser, which compromises the security and has a greater chance of installing malware with it as well.
