So, what are the best apps available on Appslib? Free or otherwise...

 

On another note - is Appslib clean? Do Archos virus-check apps before releasing them to the marketplace, or is Antivirus still vital?

Will come back later on this topic for a good apps list, but I can say for now that Appslib market place isn't that clean and you should trust only approved apps.

These are tested to work on the supported devices and approved by Appslib team. On non approved, it happens that there are fake/non official applications such as Facebook or Youtube, there could also be viruses or Trojan apps, as Appslib quality control is very low Frown

Well, I only do "free" and for some apps I have lost track whether I  got from appslib or elsewhere, but here are some examples:

 

Aldiko - epub and pdf reader and downloader

Flash 10.3 - seems to be a more recent 10.3 than came with

World Newspapers - not just newspapers

ES file explorer - check out the app manager part for backup

Angry Birds - 2 or 3 versions of the classic game

Wave Blazer lite - boat race, which currently runs slow now due to ads

 

Things have apparently changed the last couple years. Appslib had great stuff tailored to Archos gen8, such as a better version of Aldiko than gmarket. Meanwhile Gmarket wallowed in virus scares, and shoved too many updates for it than your device could handle at once. I guess I was lucky with Appslib and don't recall a bad app from there.

Thanks daft, I'll give them all a download.

 

And what antivirus would people recommend?

Also "raging thunder lite" game. Just look at their top 50 list and look for approved items to see if they look interesting.

 

As for virus checker, I gave up on that after a well rated one (avs?) found nothing and gave considerable overhead. They can really drag you down if they check things needlessly over and over. So you can look for one that is smart about not double checking things, but still may find it is more trouble than is worth.

 

If you aren't doing sensitive things with credit cards or whatever, how much should we really care? It's not a phone, so that seems to somewhat limit ability to make mischief (depending how you use the internet).
