So basically it's just a webview frame inside an app.

Why would anyone use this instead of just opening the web page in their browser?

Do not quote the whole OP.
Yes, it is, it is clearly stated in the topic title and also in OP.
If you don't like it, don't use it, no one forces you to use it...

Ah yes, targeting the opponent rather than the argument.

The only thing left to do when there's no valid response.

(.apkm)s and not (.apk)s from apkmirror

....this app still works on Android 10 (Android Q).... Easy access and overall better display than the small mobile web browser.....
apkmirror website now provides (.apkm)s and not (.apk)s, from what i have seen discussed elsewhere. it is also mentioned there that with this app, you can download stuff as (.apk)s. is this true? if so, has anyone had success installing such (.apk)s with the default package installer in the rom? or, do we have to use the proprietary apkmirror app for that? hope @vojta_horanek would also chip in with his comments.

Hi,
According to my knowledge this app just provides a easy access to the apkmirror website directly. So the apps you download is in no way related to this app istead it is directly related to apkmirror website. ie. If the website is hosting a particular app as .apk you can download it as apk file but if the particular app is hosted as .apkm this app will not convert it to apk. (Reff: attachment this app has both apk and apkm versions available at the website)

You can use the official apkmirror app from playstore to install the apkm file and can't use the app to access the website or download apk/apkm.

So I made an APKMirror app. I couldn't find any app for this website so I thought I will make it myself.
Its just a simple webapp with bottom bar and other additional cool features.

•••Info about app update tracking•••
I saw a lot of requests for app update tracking feature. Although it is possible, its very difficult to do. Apkmirror doesn't have any public API so I would have to do it with HTML parsing and in this case it's pretty difficult.If anyone wants to help me just send me a PM.
Thanks.

    Ok, so I've just published the last version of this app. Thanks for all your amazing support and everything! I will be focusing on other projects now. Feel free to fork the project on GitHub and continue with the development.
    Thanks a lot!! :)

    I'm continuing development on this app btw

    https://gitlab.com/TacoTheDank/APKMirror

    Anyone is welcome to come help code, submit pull requests, post issues (if you find issues), make translations, and basically everything GitLab exists for :)

    (also I like using bleeding-edge things, so be wary of that)

    Edit (December 16, 2018): Forgot that I should probably link to F-Droid, even though it's in the GitLab as well: https://f-droid.org/packages/taco.apkmirror/

    Sorry, confused it with apkmirror.EU .

    Just an FYI from one of the Administrators of APKMirror.com...

    It was confirmed that the .eu website is indeed a clone of their official .com website and is also considered a warez site to as well as a caution for anyone who goes to that site takes a risk of possibility compromising their device.

    I just wanted to pass along the official message to me.

    Though there are downloads there that are safe, too many unknown ones that are too risky for me to even consider.

    I'll just stick with the real deal and, hopefully, the Dev of this good app doesn't modify it anywhere but the real deal.

    Thanks for a very good app!
    Keep up the good work!

    It's January 2020 and I just wanted to confirm that this app still works on Android 10 (Android Q).

    To answer the previous question... Easy access and overall better display than the small mobile web browser. If you don't like it don't use it and don't complain. Simple. I like it and I use it.
