NFO:
SAI (Split APKs Installer) is an App that lets you install multiple APKs as if it was a single Package.
This is useful for installing Apps that are distributed as App Bundles since Android provides no built-in way to install them from Sources other than Google Play

MIUI Note:
You need to turn off MIUI Optimizations temporarily to get it working

How to use:
Code:
1. Download the split APK Files for your App(s).
2. Transfer the multiple APKs to Phone Storage.
3. Download and install the latest version of SAI App from GitHub.
4. Launch SAI App and grant all the Permissions it requires.
5. Tap on Install APKs Option in SAI.
6. Select all the three APK Packages from the Phone Storage you wish to install.
7. Grant Permission to install App(s) from Unknown Sources.
8. Let the Installation complete.

• Option to select files to install via system file picker (long click install button)
• Setting to select exported .apks file name format
• New dark theme
• Updated ukrainian localization (@MrIkso & @Displax)

v2.5

• Added apps' icons in export fragment
• Added licenses
• Added turkish translation (@FatihFIRINCI)

• Updated ukrainian translation (@MrIkso)
• Updated chinese translation (@yaxisvip)

v2.4

v2.3

• Revised exported apps naming
• Updated chinese localization (@yaxisvip)

v2.2
• Fixed rooted installer compatibility with some devices
• Updated ukrainian translation (@MrIkso)

v2.1
• Fixed an issue which caused app to crash when opening .apks via SAI

v2.0
• Added APK export feature (Beta)

v1.28
• SAI now lets system decide install location (previously internal-only)

v1.27
• Improved stability
• Updated file selection design
• Supports up to 5 dots in the name of the .apks file
• Added F-Droid theme

v1.25
• MIUI crash fix
• Navbar coloring on 8.1+

v1.24
• Improved signing (Now implements zipalign and native libs page-align, file entries in a signed APK inherit compression method from the original APK)
• Updated ukrainian translation

v1.23
• Added option to extract APKs from archives (.zip/.apks) before installing them. This is a workaround for some users who are having problems with rooted installation from archives. Don’t use it if rooted-installer works fine for you, it will only slow down installation. Rootless installer isn’t affected by that problem, so using this feature with it is super not recommended, since it will only slow down installation as well. Basically just don’t use it if installation works fine for you

v1.22
• .zip/.apks archives are now allowed to contain non-apk files, SAI will just ignore them
• Added copy option to error log dialog
• Added one-time warning when using SAI on MIUI

v1.21
• Partial chinese translation by @yaxisvip

v1.20
• Updated file picker design
• Added device info to rooted installer failure log
• Some other minor fixes

v1.19
• Improved buttons on the installation screen
• Added some new themes

Huhn?

Forgive me for not being a 'tall forehead' like all you smarties. LOL
I don't get this. "app bundles"?

I wish SAI worked, I have version 3.8, I need to install an app but it gives me an error. The beauty is that the app works, I downloaded it from the official website.

Fantastic tool. Any chance of a separate standalone tool that isn't an app?
a .jar or a command line binary perhaps?
