This is more than great news @dhemker and highly appreciated.

Would love to have this maintained and usable, not expecting any major new features (they are welcome, of course :)).

Are you planning to upload the apk into APKMirror as well or maintain only in Github?

Hey!
I currently uploaded a new release v1.1.0 with a big improvement: now you can directly download and install apps from APKMirror :)
Also, the self-updater works now, so users should get a notification to download new version v.1.1.0
@tjsuominen yes, that could be a cool thing. But for now it is self-updating. As long as you download APKGrabber one time, the self updater notifies you.

Excellent!

1) Should I remove APKUpdater 1st?
2) looking forward for the APKMirror availability yet the self-updater sounds great!

Hey,
yes, completely remove APKUpdater and install APKGrabber

Thx, installation and configuration done, now waiting for the 1st notification to appear :)

Where do you wanna bugs / issues / requests to be posted? In this forum or Github (I guess there was no such place yet in Github)?

Keep up the great work!

I readapted APKUpdater with new signatures as APKGrabber, so updates can be installed seamlessly. See https://github.com/hemker/apkgrabber/
  • Enhanced APKMirror handling: now apks can be downloaded and installed directly
I actually preferred tapping the APKMIRROR button to go to the page. Most of the time the wrong version appears in the app, so I have to go to the page to download the right one. Could you add the option for both?

Two minor requests (when downloading the updates = after clicking e.g. APKMirror link):

1) indicate somehow in the UI that download is in progress (otherwise there's no indication of something in progress...)
2) After installation completed /app > have option to auto-refresh the "Updates (x) list?

Thx!

Edit: just noted your post > will move these to Github.

@tjsuominen Issue tracking is enabled now, so please put all dev related stuff in the GitHub issue tracker.

@yochananmarqos yes, that should be quite easy, please add an issue for that on GitHub.

When I try to install latest version (1.1.0) I am seeing below error from google protect. Kindly verify.

something must be done with name and version as well,
file name needs change and version change isn't recognized by titanium backup for some reason,
it doesn't backup the new apk, it keeps the same each time I have to delete the backup and
create (as) new

ok, maybe he fixed it, I'll tell you in the next version,
you don't have "backup same version" enabled, right?
