TheAppGallery, all Huawei enthusiasts know it. And it makes sense: it’s the Chinese brand’s app store (and Honor’s so far).

The most important is undoubtedly ” Office automation »Where you find all the popular software for producing documents, communicating with colleagues and organizing remote meetings. Tencent, WPS, WeChat, the big Chinese publishers are there. You will also find an entertainment tab, a tab for customizing Windows 10 and another dedicated to computer-aided creation.

The store also offers editorial content to highlight certain categories or recommended applications.

This shop is not today accessible only in China, but it is not impossible that it arrives in the West if the demand is felt. Finally, note that the AppGallery is also accessible via a browser.
