Frequently Asked Questions
What is AppAware?
AppAware is a social network for apps and games. It helps you find new Android apps that are currently installed by your friends and the community. AppAware does not replace the Android Market, it shows you the real adoption of apps based on community installations and removals, rather than ratings and number of downloads from the official Market.
Where do I get your Android app?
AppAware for Android is listed on Google Play Store (Android Market)
How much does your app cost?
FREE! AppAware is available for free in the
Google Play Store (Android Market)
Where does the name come from?
We wanted to make you "aware" of "apps" used by your friends and other people, so we combined the two into AppAware.
Who are Avatars? Why do I have friends when I join AppAware?
Avatars are special characters which know about the best apps! You start with some Avatars as friends, but if you are not interested in a particular Avatar you can remove it from your friends. Avatar are maintained directly by the AppAware team and tell you about the most promising apps!
I have a problem, how can I contact you?
The best way to get in touch with us is to send us an email at
How you protect my privacy?
We have adopted a friendship model with three levels of privacy: "public", "only friends" and "private". That means, if you’re "public" on AppAware, anyone can see your apps. In "only friends" mode only your friends can look at your apps. In "private" option, nobody can see your apps, not even your friends!
Can I hide a specific app?
Yes. In AppAware you can select apps which you want to hide from everybody and thus also from your friends. If you want to hide all apps you can also switch to private mode.
How to delete my account?
Are you sure? We and your AppAware friends will miss you... If you really want to delete your account, please login this website, open the dropdown-menu in the navigation-bar, and click on "Settings". In your profile settings you will find a link to delete your AppAware account and thus all your data.
Is this the final website?
No. We are already working on a new and more complete version of the website, but currently it is not yet ready.
There would never be a "final" version. We, human and little bots at 42matters AG, are wroking hard every day/night to bring better/prettier/more features to the website.
When are you going to make the app for iPhone, iPad etc.?
We are trying to make the Android experience as solid as possible. Only then will we consider other platforms, but currently we have nothing to announce.
