    I am challenging myself to use Amazon's Appstore for the next week. I am uninstalling all Google services or disabling them. I want to see how it feels not having access to Google Play. I have my most essentials downloaded so, I think I'll be alright. If anything I might download some games. Anybody else want to try the challenge?

    Seems like an interesting challenge. I'd be up for it, but I don't download apps too often.
    It wouldn't be too hard for me

    I disabled Google Play and Google Services. So far Touchless Controls still works. Got a Google services error though.

    I can live without the Play Store, but not Google services. I use Hangouts a lot

    You can keep Hangouts if its an essential but Google settings and Playstore has to go.

    Haha, You can also use 1mobile market instead of Amazon Appstore. They have pretty much all the free android apps available on Google Play.

    Its not the Google Play store. There's just no point in doing it when I rarely use that stuff anyway

    Think I will stick it out with Google Play! Let us know how this goes though. I'd be interested to hear how it goes in the end.
