Watch out, Google. Samsung is pushing a new Android app store, and it’s not Google Play. The Korean-based company announced Galaxy Apps, a new and rebranded version of its app store on Friday in an apparent attempt to challenge Google’s dominant Play Store. The company says the new Galaxy Apps, previously known as Samsung Apps, will offer users customization options, discounts and other promotions not available in the Play Store. The new storefront, which will be available to anyone with a Samsung smartphone or tablet, is divided into three main sections: Best Picks, Top and For Galaxy. Best and Top surface recommended and popular apps, which users can filter by date, popularity and price. The For Galaxy section includes premium and business-centric apps specifically for Galaxy devices and those created using Samsung’s software development kits.
