There’s no shortage of places to download apps for Google Android devices. But a new app store called FirePlace Market takes a different approach than most by focusing on apps for people that have rooted their phones or tablets.

FirePlace Market

There are only a handful of apps available from Fireplace Market right now, but they include popular apps that require root access such as Titanium Backup and Set CPU.

The app store has a pretty barebones look and feel, but you can browse apps by category, search for apps, or view a list of all apps. There’s also a built-in package manage that lets you launch or remove apps from your device.

Fireplace Market 2.0 came out this week, and it includes a new homepage, interface improvements, and other updates.

You can download and install Fireplace Market on any rooted device running Android 2.1 or newer. You can also follow the development thread at the xda-developers forum or submit your own apps for inclusion.
