APKUpdater
APKUpdater is a tool that simplifies the process of finding updates for your installed apps. It will provide functionality similar to an app store without having to install the associated spyware that comes with it. This is a very useful app for those not using Google Play store in their devices.

FAQ
  • Why is direct downloading of apps not supported?
    Direct downloads would steal bandwidth from sites. Instead, the app redirects you to their download page so they can make some ad revenue.

  • Why are F-Droid and Xposed not supported?
    These are non-profit volunteer sites with no ads. Spamming them with requests with no way for them to make revenue would be really unfair.

  • How do I ignore updates for one app?
    Long click on the app in the Installed tab.

It would be nice to have direct downloads, but for the moment I will not be adding it since I don't want to steal traffic from these sites.

The update check is really fast and easy to use

A couple suggestions:
• exclude apps from the list
• bug in the notification bar
