Who set up the sailfish-apps store in Aptoide (Store) [duplicate]

Hi there, I am a new Sailfish user and really like the idea of being independent of the Google/Apple smartphone monopoly. However, some of the Android apps would be quite useful, so I installed the Android support + Store (Aptoide) app on setup. I have a question about Aptoide. As far as I understand anyone can post anything to Aptoide and therefore it is potentially difficult to tell a genuine app from malware. My Store app defaults to the sailfish-apps store in Aptoide. Is this store maintained by the Jolla/Sailfish team and are these apps safe? I can't find any information on where this store came from. Most of the common apps seem genuine, but I thought it was worth checking, especially as the Aptoide app is now named Store and looks like it would be the default/endorsed Store app from Jolla for Android apps.

Anyways, replies would be much appreciated! Thanks!

Stef

Thanks for the link. Do you know what the difference is between the Jolla store (on Aptoide) and the sailfish-apps store? The link is about the former, but my Aptoide app seems to default towards the latter. Is this a newer version? Is this one actually maintained/checked by Jolla?
