Just seen the fork of this, good to see! I've been using the original one from 2017 all this time.

What are the differences, anything fixed or added? Can't really see anything in settings.

Rumboalla, does the app require having the playstore itself installed for proper function?

as of now i have it uninstalled?

Thanks

Is this app dead? Checked the app page, but seems there's two years since the last update.

Yes, but was recently picked up by someone else. You can find further information in its own thread here:

some apps update on apkupdater while some dont on apkgrabber, and vise versa. also, apkgrabber is a MAJOR PAIN IN THE ASS because you have to click like 3 or 4 links before you install.

APKGrabber is based on APKUpdater but contains necessary fixes as well as some improvements. Basically, APKGrabber is NOT worse than APKUpdater...

My only concern is will app be maintained or will surprise new version appear in 2 years time?

Currently, yalp dev has gone dark without word.
But, aurora dev has been active and responsive.

Whereas, apkupdater has been silent with not a word for last 2years.
Not sure if users will want to return to an app.

ApkUpdater was great, but the problem is goofle has been changing stuff backend every now and then.
So, will changes be addressed? Or another disappearing act?
