Android users are finally getting a choice of alternative app stores, and one of the newest ones is called HappyMod. The app store is full of modified apps and games and is free for every Android user – that includes all the content. And with no need to root your Android device either, you don’t have anything to lose by trying it. Read on for all the details.
How to Install HappyMod
HappyMod is simple to install, but it must be done following the guide below very carefully. Otherwise it won’t work:
- Open your Android settings app and navigate to Security or Privacy – depending on what firmware version you are running
- Find the Allow Install from Unknown Sources option and enable it by tapping the slider – skipping this will result in HappyMod not working
- Now open the linked HappyMod download page and tap on the download link
- When it is downloaded, open your downloads folder
- Tap the file, tap it again and follow any other instructions on the screen – when it is installed, you will see HappyMod on your home screen.
How to Use HappyMod
There is nothing hard about using HappyMod. In fact, if you can use the Play Store, you can use HappyMod as they are similar in layout. It is worth noting that the app store developers do not develop any of the apps – HappyMod is nothing more than a repository for uploaded apps and games, and even you, as an app user, can upload to the store.
- Launch HappyMod from your home screen
- Tap an app category
- Find something to download – there is a search bar available too – and tap it
- Follow the directions on the screen and wait until you see your app or game on your home screen – the installation is finished
You will also find a separate window showing the latest store uploads.
HappyMod offers lots of useful features for users, including:
- Modified Apps – plenty of Android apps modified with new features – some games have multiple versions, each with a different mod
- Fast and Safe – fast downloads and every app is checked for exploits and viruses – if any are found, the app is rejected before it gets into the store
- Language Support – language support is second to none, with many supported, including English, traditional Chinese, simplified Chinese, Romanian, Thai, Italian, and many more
- Pause/Resume – stop and start your downloads when you want
Frequently Asked Questions
These are the most commonly asked questions about HappyMod and tell you all you need to know about this cool app store:
What is HappyMod?
HappyMod is an alternative app store for Android users. It offers over 30,000 modified games and apps, and some apps even have several versions, all with their own different modification. Anyone can upload apps to the store and app users are asked to participate by commenting on any app they download, telling the developers what they think of it. That way, the developers can weed out the worst and get rid of them and move the best to the top of the download lists.
Is HappyMod Safe?
Yes. Understandably, many people are concerned about downloading unofficial content but with HappyMod you are assured a safe app. That’s because the developers put all the apps through a virus scanner and check them for exploits before they are allowed into the store – if they fail, they are booted out.
I Heard HappyMod Was a Virus
It isn’t and it doesn’t have any in it either. It is just a repository that contains modified content for free.
How Does HappyMod Work?
Backed by a huge community, HappyMod works differently to other stores:
- Most apps are uploaded from the internet but the developers and all users are encouraged to try them
- Comment on the apps you try and the developers will use these comments to determine the best mods
- All uploads to the store are tested for viruses and exploits – if an app isn’t considered safe, it won’t be allowed in the store
- Users are encouraged to participate and upload apps of their own if they want
Is HappyMod Free?
Yes and all the mods are free to. You won’t find any hidden charges and some mods even have all the in-app purchases unlocked for free.
Can I Install it on my iPhone or iPad?
No. Right now, HappyMod is only for the Android market and the developers have not indicated that they will be producing one for iOS. That said, iOS users do have a great choice of alternatives stores anyway, all offering similar apps and games.
Try HappyMod today; it won’t cost you anything and you won’t have to root your device to use it. With so much modified content on offer, and more being added all the time, there has never been a better time to change your app store.
