Raccoon’s goal is to download Android apps directly to your PC from the official Google store, without necessarily sending your personal data to the company; it also eliminates region restrictions!
Some people prefer to keep their data private without sharing it with the actual technology companies. In between we have Google, the main company in the mobile segment that collects your data to allow you to download applications from the PlayStore. With Raccoon, you can do this directly from your PC with your Linux, macOS or Windows system, in a simple and secure way.
Among the biggest advantages is that it saves your phone’s battery and storage, while it does not send data to Google and eliminates any location restriction that may exist, so you can download everything good for free from the store!
Raccoon has been under heavy development with at least one update every month since its launch in September 2015 and each update brings major fixes on board. In addition, you can easily submit a ticket to report any issues or give constructive feedback.
