I have a Samsung. J3 luna pro with only play store downloaded apps. Now when ever I am on my phone doing anything. Randomly the play store pops open and sugest random apps. From a period tracker. To a plumber game and a map program. And all of them say at the bottom that the app is in development and may not be suitable for you phone.. I have done every sugested repair short of a total wipe and restart. Any help will be greatly appreciated. If this has been addressed already I am sorry to ask again. I could not find anything in the search.

I think the issue maybe resulted from some adware.

If an adware promotes some app, it would manage to open an URL such as "market://details?id=theAppPackageName" which will open Play Store on your device and directly lead to the app available on Play Store.
But perhaps the app is not suitable for you phone indeed. (smug):D

Go to your apps manager and disable Play Store
I did this for a different reason. But it might help you!
And i can still access play store through the internet!
If it has any negative affects in your device you can always enabled it again!
