I auto backup my apks with appmonster, for any future emergency situation.
I want to know whether the apps installed from my SD card (those I install from the backed up APKs) OR "3rd party sources" will be upadated normally via play store.
Yes. I have SuperSU installed that I downloaded the APK manually for, and it auto updates when one is released. This is not a pirated version though, it is the legit one that would be the same as the free version from the app store.
XDA Developers was founded by developers, for developers. It is now a valuable resource for people who want to make the most of their mobile devices, from customizing the look and feel to adding new functionality. Are you a developer?
