Interesting you should say that incrediBILL. The Google Play Store is full of junk: it is not so much that the apps are bad but there are too many that do the same thing, and many contain irritating ads. Maybe customers are not asking for non-Google apps because they cannot find the good ones, and unless they do the vendors are not going to bother with anthing but the Google defaults.
I installed more apps on my tablet in the last week than in the last two years, because I discovered F-Droid which installs from an open source only repo. The result is a very small selection, but with a much lower ratio of rubbish: so I actually found a lot more I wanted.
