TutuApp is one of the best-known and most famous of all the third-party app stores. One of the first to be released as a Cydia alternative, it has since gone on to become a popular replacement for the official app store. Why? Because it offers everything the official store doesn’t – unofficial apps, tweaked games, fully functional screen recorders, working game emulators, and much more. And it is all free with no jailbreak needed. Even better, it now works on Android devices, which means, with a small workaround, it also works on your Windows PC or Mac computer. Here’s how to get it.
How to Download TutuApp on PC or Mac:
Although there is no official support for desktop computers, TutuApp can easily be installed with the help of an Android emulator.
- First, download the android emulator – BlueStacks and Nox Player App are two of the best for this.
- Next, open the TutuApp download page and download the Android APK file.
- Open the emulator and sign in (a Google account is required, free to set up if needed) and leave it to set up.
- On the emulator home screen, type TutuApp in the search bar.
- Click on the search result and wait for the app to download
- Alternatively, you can right-click the APK file and click on Open With or drag the file into the emulator.
- When you see the TutuApp icon on the emulator home screen, it’s ready to use.
How to Use TutuApp:
This is the most straightforward part about it – open the emulator app and tap on TutuApp. When the store has opened, you can search for apps or games in two ways – browser through or use the search bar. Tap the app you want, tap Install and wait for the app icon to load in the emulator – the app is ready to use

If you have the VIP version on your mobile device, link your desktop to your account and use it on that too.
