Wow....you are a genius so I bought the pro version 😉. But I have a problem with screen2auto. At the first launch I can see the phone app on the car display but when I try to open any app, the screen on the car display become black while on the phone the app is opened. Is there any trick?
Did you fix this problem? I have the same problem in AA mirror application.

I tried to mirror screen live sports app like univision, fios tv with aa mirror, it just doesn't mirror screen the video and it is just all black with the video only. Youtube works just fine.

What does install with aaad mean exactly? In regards to screen2auto. When I click to install it takes me to a Russian? Page where I click a link to download the apk. I can install it by opening the file through Samsung browser or my files app but dunno how to open in aaad...

Update: Had to remove browser defaults to get this to work.

So I'm not completely sure what can be done with this app and what can't ..... I would love to be able to run an app called JBV1 (it's in the app store) that is for connecting to a Valentine 1 radar detector. Usually have a dedicated Android device in the car for this app but connecting to Android Auto and running on car screen would be awesome.
Any ideas??

I was running JBV1 on a dedicated Android Auto rooted phone using Screen2Auto. In theory this app should be able to run Screen2Auto on an unrooted phone, and then run the JBV1 app in Screen2Auto. But I couldn't get this app to work on my unrooted Galaxy S7 (Screen2Auto didn't show up in AA). I'm hoping the author gets this app sorted out so it can reliably run Screen2Auto.

However, I did get Screen2Auto to load into Android Auto on my unrooted phone using a back-door method. I posted the instructions in the rdforum forum JBV1 section (Any hope for Android Auto?). What would really be great is to convince johnboy to create an AA compatible app that could be directly loaded using this app.

You may want to give this app a try and post how it works out.

Will try. I haven't gotten screen 2 auto to install yet. Do I need the paid for version of this app possibly??

I don't think it matters, the paid version only lets you install more than 1 app a month.
I got Screen2Auto to install using this app but it didn't show up in Android Auto as an available app.

App didn't work. First try in installing carstream and I got an error that it can't parse the downloaded file. v1.2 here so now I can't test this at all since I don't have enough points. Samsung note 10 in android 11

    I've had very little time in the last few days and weekend is crazzy busy BUT ... I did get JBV1 to show up on my Uconnect headunit (native in my Dodge Ram) using a non rooted phone (S21 Ultra) with AAAD installed then with Screen2Auto installed within AAAD .... intial stages but it for sure worked!!!! Many have had difficulty getting screen2auto working in AAAD (ie without root) but I can confirm it worked. I could not get split screen Waze and JBV1 (just a black screen) nor could I see the JBV1 overlays on Waze. But I still have a lot of experimenting to do. --- posted in RDForum as well

    My experiences are after a few hours later:
    Fermata Auto, AA Mirror Plus, CarStream are the best triple running apps for me. ( Huawei mate 20 pro-no root, android auto Last versiyon and hyundai tucson 2019)
    By the way, fermata and AA mirror Plus are enough for a lot of person like me and cars...
    Screen2auto is laggy and have problems about stability. Some times, picture dissappared, some times sound doesnt come!!! Netflix doesnt work either with screen2auto. Netflix fix doesnt Work, at least for me

    Is it possible to add audio sync adjustment feature (Audio delay) to AA Mirror Plus?

    Android Auto Apps Downloader (AAAD) is an app for Android Phones that downloads popular Android Auto 3rd party apps and installs them in the correct way to have them in Android Auto.


    For the first time in 3 years, now users with non-rooted Android devices can enjoy these apps made for Android Auto, and Android Auto Apps Downloader does it all for you. Simply select an app you want to install on your phone and the download will begin. Once completed, install the given app with the classic Android interface and you can start enjoying the app you’ve just installed for Android Auto.

    No need for a PC.

    Android Auto Apps Downloader can be easily installed on any Android phone and the whole installing process is just on the phone.

    No need for developer options.

    There’s this common misconception that enabling “unknown sources” or “disable ANR” make those apps work. I don’t know who started this, but it’s totally irrelevant. Debug USB? No need for that either.

    No need of grabbing APK and do manual installations.

    Android Auto Apps Downloader will always download the latest version of the software for you!

    No root needed.

    The main goal of this app is having the listed apps in Android Auto with a pain free experience and, most of all, without requiring a rooted phone. If you are rooted, you might want to consider AA AIO TWEAKER, which has an alternative root method to patch the apps and it has a lot of other cool features!


    Android Auto Apps Downloader is free and can be downloaded from GitHub. Offers in app purchase. The free version of the app allows up to 1 download every 30 days. With the PRO version you can enjoy the full experience and download as many times as you want, forever!


    PRE-REQUISITES:
    • Android 6.0+ phone
    • That's it!

    Download From GitHub (source code will be live soon!)

    F.A.Q.

    Why the heck do I need this app? Can’t I just install the apps by myslef?



    Well yes, you could, but they would not appear in Android Auto. Since the beginning of 2018 the custom apps for Android Auto are blocked by Google, but AAAD installs them in a special way in order to actually see the apps on Android Auto. And no root is needed! Call it magic, if you will.

    I have a warning from Google Play Protect warning me about your app! Is this app a malware?

    Of course AAAD it’s not a malware. Google Play Store does not like apps that install other apps and apps that have IAP (in app purchases) not managed by Google. You can see yourself that this app basically doesn’t require special permissions. Also, I’m planning on releasing the source code soon!

    Why only those apps? Where is YouTube? Where is Netflix? Where is Instagram?

    Not all apps are compatible with Android Auto. You can’t just pick an app and sledge hammer it into Android Auto. I’ve included basically almost every Android Auto app known to date, and the only responsibility of AAAD is to make them available in Android Auto.

    How do I update the apps installed from AAAD?

    AAAD will always download latest version of an app. If one of the apps that you've installed through AAAD gets an update, you can open AAAD and download the update. At the moment, there's no update checker, but I'm planning on making it!

    Will you hold my bank account/credit card informations?

    Of course no. The offered in app purchase is solely processed by PayPal and none of the informations are held or shared with me.

    Will this app be available on the Play Store?

    No.

    I have a problem with an app installed by AAAD. Coyld you help me out?

    Any software installed by my app is provided "as is" and I'm not responsible for any malfunctioning. If you are in this case, please seek help from the software's author instead.

    I have a problem with this app. Could you help me out?

    Write an email to [email protected]


    Sir how do I download this app????

    If you are on mobile, you likely will have a little dropdown menu named "Assets", from there you can see the package (APK) to install the app. Download and install. If you are on a PC, you might see the "Assets" menu already collapsed and from there you can see the APK.
