Download apps on Raspberry Pi from Pi-Apps

The app stores for mobile devices have become a complete success and this is demonstrated by spaces such as the App Store, the Google Play Store or the Amazon Appstore. This trend has also been assimilated by desktop systems such as Windows and Mac, through the Microsoft Store and Mac App Store, respectively.
