Frequently Asked Questions:
As HappyMod is an unofficial app store, we do tend to get asked quite a few questions about it. These are the common ones, telling you everything you need to know about the store:
What is HappyMod?
HappyMod is an alternative app store that offers a choice of more than 30,000 apps and games. All of them are modified in some way and cannot be downloaded from the official app store. HappyMod is backed by a huge community and both the developers and the app users upload apps to the store. Users are asked to comment on every app they try and the developers will use those comments to rate the apps – the best ones go to the top of the list and users know that they are getting fully working and safe apps.
Is it Safe?
Yes, although we do understand why this is asked. All apps are tested thoroughly for malware, viruses and exploits when they are submitted to the store. If they failed, they are not allowed in. Plus, user comments on each app let the developers know what works and what doesn’t. You are encouraged to join in but not obliged.
Is HappyMod a Virus?
No, it doesn’t have any viruses in it. It is purely an app store containing apps, games and more.
How Does HappyMod Work?
Backed by a huge community, HappyMod offers thousands of apps and games and it works very simply:
- When you download an app or game, you are asked to comment on how it works.
- The developer then reads the comments and uses them to determine if the app is good or not
- All mods are tested before going into the Happymod store for exploits and viruses and failures are refused.
- Users are also allowed to upload any mods they have developed themselves or that they find on the internet
Is it Free?
Yes, and the developers assure us that it will always be free. You won’t find any hidden fees and every app and game is free, including all the mods and unlocked features it contains.
Can I Install it for iOS?
No. HappyMod was developed for Android devices and the developers have no plans to make it available to iOS users. However, if you have an iOS device, you already have a good choice of alternative stores.
HappyMod is free to use and offers a huge choice of alternative apps and games. Try it on your Android device today – you don’t need to root your device and it is perfectly safe to use.
