Hi all,

I try to install Screen2Auto using AAAD. It forwards me to a russian page, where i should find my version and open it in AAAD. I found the version (ver3.5.2-beta.apk), but how can I open it with AAAD? I don't find AAAD in 'Share with'

Thx

App not working. Whatever I choose, it is always stuck on "Loading". Not sure what it is doing and after a while it just crashes.

Seems a few others have had the same issue. Any resolution? Thanks.

Hi, was this issue solved? You might want to also check your internet connection

Works great for me. Great job, OP. Hope Google doesn't kill it with the next update.

Regarding Screen2Auto, does anyone know who to automate the confirmation of "Start"? It's annoying having to accept this one the phone every time.

No way to automate it without rooting

Hi at first thanks to all developers for the great job done unfortunately on my old huawey P9 with Android 7.0 after correct AAAD + CarStream download the addon don't appear on Android Auto maybe could be Android 7.0 because with Huawei P Smart with Android 10 running well. Do someone help me ? Thks

I'm investigating some issues with older HUAWEI phones.

I have the pro version installed and the same problem
that a majority of users:
APPLICATIONS INSTALLED WITH AAAD DO NOT APPEAR IN ANDROID AUTO.
Will a solution be given to this problem, otherwise, how to recover the money paid for an application that is still under development?
My phone:
My Note 10 Lite with Android 11

If you have Android Auto 6.4, please roll back to an older version

Installed AAAD 1.2, tried to install custom app Fermata Auto but stuck at loading and crash.
Any idea how to fix this?
Thank you

Hi, if the phone asks if you want to close the app, please don't! The download might take long!

Hi guys I can't install anything .
it's just get stuck on loading and then it crashes.
I'm using an Samsung S10 with Android 11 and ui 3.1
Can it be some rights need to give to AAAD ?
Please help me out here.

Regards Sergio

Was this problem solved?

it seems the app is no longer working with Android Auto 6.4, all my apps have disappeared after the update. Reinstalling does not fix the issue

Rolling back Android Auto fixes the issue. You might want to block auto updates

Yes i've had the same problem on Poco X3 Pro, but not realme X50 5G

The solution is go into the app's settings (wher you manage data/uninstall etc) and selection the phones option for allowing app to download/install apps. That will fix it, but like others I can't get car share to even show on AA, and Screen2 auto shows but i cant get past 1st screen to select the root etc. Doesn't look like this app works and 30 days to try a different app is crazy and point less, way too restrictive licensing model.

Developer, Just make the app work fully for 14 days then limit so we can at least test before purchase. at this rate it will take about 10 months to even find an app that works!

I'll consider a reduction of "Waiting days"


Hello 👋👋👋

Hi. I installed aaad v1.3.1 to my huawei mate 20 pro without any problem. then I installed car stream to my phone. I connected my phone to my hyundai tucson 2019 suv via cable . It is worked. I wanted to try another version of carstream. so uninstalled it and tried to install car stream again. But I had problem because it did not allow me to install again. Same app, not another one.
Then ı wanted to buy pro but at this time ı saw that paypal doesnt work in Turkey. I have to wait one month :(
Please correct it for the same apps able to install at least
Thanks for your effort...

I'm sorry but uninstalling one app after you've downloaded it still counts as a download :(

Hello, just discovered that app. which look useful at first.
But there is a sentence in the FAQ (post #2) I don't understand:

I thought your app purpose was to be able to install *non* Android auto apps. Native Android Auto apps are compatible by design.
BTW my initial purpose was to be able to use Glympse Express app on AA (I still not can't understand why that one is not AA compatible, since it's typically used when driving). Any hope to be able to do that?

Hi,

AAAD never intended to install on AndroidAuto not-android-auto apps.

Suggestion: can you add YouTube music Vanced to the list of apps?

No

You might want to change your browser. For instance, Samsung Browser does not work unless you've the "Useful features" activated in settings.

Installed Firefox, but what should happen? AAAD opens the webpage of, screen2auto i click on the first red button to go to the download page, click on 3.5.2b and...it's downloaded.?!?

Edit: Works with Chrome as default browser

    I'll answer this from a non-techie's perspective.

    There are 3 types of apps:
    AA compatible apps available in the Playstore.
    AA compatible apps that don't meet Googles rules for being available in the Playstore.
    Non-AA compatible Android apps.

    AAAD allows (or is supposed to allow) AA compatible apps that aren't available in the Playstore to be used. in AA.

    Some AA compatible apps not available in the Playstore (like Screen2Auto) act as an interface between AA and non-AA compatible Android apps, and allow regular Android apps to be used in AA.

    So, in theory, installing Screen2Auto using AAAD should allow the use of any Android app in AA.

    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.
    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?

    I have a general question about the different apps.
    I just want to run a few basic non-AA compatible apps (JBV1, Torque, etc.). I don't need video streaming, audio streaming, etc.
    What would be the best app to run inside AAAD? I'm currently running Screen2Auto (installed using the back door method) but if there is a better (simpler and more reliable) I'd consider giving it a try.
    Anything that gets up and running quickly and takes the fewest button pushes would be desirable.

    I have an unrooted Galaxy S7 and a Chevy My Link touchscreen.

    Android Auto 6.0 or superior is needed

      Don't waste your money with this app! Google is going to always find a way to stop every method people will find to circumvent AA restrictions. It will be fairer not to ask for money for "products" that will cease to work in only a few weeks.
      Relax. It's just a few bucks.
      I don't mind supporting a developer with a great idea. Even if it's not permanent.
      He still did the work, so why not pay the small price to enjoy it while it lasts.

      I have a question that is related but off topic.

      Why hasn't anyone come up with an app that is an alternative to Android Auto?

      I'm talking about something that makes the car's headunit think it is connected to AA.

      Is it just too big of a job?

      Is there some secret handshake between AA and the car's headunit?

      It seems there would be quite a demand for it instead of this whack-a-mole approach.

      Maybe he's working to try and fix the problem with the AA update blocking his app.....Maybe he doesn't wanna post anything and have the people complaining about it getting blocked and fking requesting their FEW DOLLARS back......Question to everybody asking for a refund or for another app of equal value.......DID YOU GUYS NOT KNOW YOU WERE DOWNLOADING A "ILLEGAL APP" that gave you so many more options in AA? If you can only Uninstall the "latest AA" update and the app still isn't working, use your brain, UNINSTALL AA, goto Google, Search "AA versions free download", find one that works with the app, and boom, your good.....Crying over spilled milk here.

      I have been using the last good version that permited carsream to work until today. This morning, something happened that AA would not start in my car unless I updated AA on my phone. Clearly Google forced a server side "check". Very frustrating. I use a Samsung A71 5G and have not updated the firware since Febuary.

      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.

      1619777118441.png

      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.
