Getting Android applications from Yandex Store:

  • Once you are registered and signed in to Yandex you can choose your favorite Android apps
  • Tap on ‘Free’ (for free apps) to download and install
  • Apps that you have to pay for have a price label; tap on the price label to download and install them.
  • Do the same for as many apps you want.
  • The installed applications are now in the end of the application grid in the Launcher.

Note: There are also other Android application stores available. See this article.

Please also note that when creating a user account directly on the Yandex.Store client, it will ask the user to fill in details for a “password recovery” option. The user is given two options, either fill in details for 1) a secret question or 2) choose to deliver a secret code over mobile phone via SMS. The user should use the secret question as the Yandex.Store client has an issue with the delivery of SMS's with international country prefix (+358).
This is a known issue and is being fixed by Yandex.
