Hi,

At my wit's end trying to diagnose and troubleshoot my device...?

I can't be certain that the current buggyness (clicking anything on the screen, whether app related, system setting related, anything is excruciatingly delayed, often requiring multiple taps before there's any response) is a direct result of having installed an apk from APKUpdater, but I would not be surprised.

Can anyone advise on steps I can take *before* the last resort of doing a hard reset?

I've been in the modding game since the Galaxy S3. Unfortunately, I can tell you it's not worth troubleshooting from what you're describing.

Whenever you mod, you need to have a backup solution in place at all times for stuff like this where you don't even know where to start troubleshooting.

Look into Swift Backup for your apps or TWRP Nandroid backup for a full 1:1 backup. For now, you'll likely have to bite the bullet and reset your device.

It is unable to update Chrome, OsmAnd and Uber using latest APKUpdater/GooglePlay, installation error -22. Some other apps were updated.
UPD: It is known issue #306 with bundled APK at github.

Hi,

Nice app!
2 requests/suggestions:
  1. Can you add APKPure (https://www.apkpure.com it also has a dedicated app) to the update sources list? I've checked and has more apps and/with newer updates to offer.
  2. Can you improve the UX so that apps that have the same version update will be in one bar with the icons of the source at the bottom.

Pressing on the icon of the source will open the URL to DL the file from the corresponding source (remove the the install button&label on the bottom right of the bar)

TnxAloT

Read through this thread, not every single post to be honest, compared this App with the fork and decided to use this one. Where to report missing Apps, e.g. Firefox Nightly? Both options, System (which broke my GBoard :D ) and Experimental and all the 4 sources enabled. Firefox Nightly is updated on APKMirror daily...

Android 11 is not supported - getUpdateAsync error.
It works for me, 1+8 with crDroid 7.3 & root with Magisk.

Nothing you can do, I believe this is a server API change or a rate limit on server side.
Technically this app isn't considered proper use of PlayStore APIs
It's chronic. about a week now and I check several times each day. PS APIs aren't the issue I want to get user (& system) app updates from APKMirror.
Is this project still maintained or it's deprecated?

I believe it's no longer maintained.
And my personal experience, I had this app checking for apkmirror updates periodically and it eventually flagged my ip and since then I'm presented with a disturbing non-mobile friendly recaptcha whenever I want to browse apkmirror.

So although this app is really useful, it has it's flaws.

Alright.
Removed it from my Adblocker monitoring list
Unticked GP and it works.
Yes it probably has API mismatch with newer playstore app
