    Default Intrusive google play store

    Does google play store have to be involved in app installs?
    If not, how do I get around its intrusiveness?
    background: when I want to install an app from a website, some how I get routed to a google playstore site.

    It sounds like the website is purposely sending you to the store to download the sites app.... I don't see why that's an issue.

    Sounds like you're trying to steal it, if you want to circumvent the Play store. If you aren't, explain why this is a problem.
    Due to the cancellation of the penny, I no longer give 2 about anything. I may however, give a nickel

    You're not clicking on a link to download an app, you're clicking on a link to an app's page in the Play Store.

    Thanks for the help. Except for the one who accused me of stealing. Not cool when you have so little data.
    I figured it out.
    I have not used google play and am not used to applications asking me to log into something I don't think have anything to do with a free walmart mobile app offered on the walmart site.
    I am new to android. I get annoyed at software that tries to help too much like microsoft. It affects my productivity.

    "Not cool when you have so little data"

    That's not @sledges fault. You left the data out whether intentional or unintentional. Believe me, he's not the only one who'd have that thought.

    Forums are full of people trying to pull a fast one disguised as "needing help."

    Not smart to make a conclusion with too little data. Better to keep quiet.
    I don't care about those other people. I am not the problem.
