How to get the latest Android apps and updates without Google Play (APKUpdater review)

If you are an advanced Android user, downloading and installing APKs from multiple sources, then please, keep reading. A new app by a user named rumboalla has surfaced on GitHub, offering a unified way of updating installed applications from sources such as APKMirror, Aptoide, F-Droid, and Google Play.

Now into the details. Apart from being able to update to latest and greatest build of said apps (Google stuff perhaps), you can save countless minutes of lurking through the Internet looking for new builds, comparing version numbers, dates, etcetera. Moreover, the application is fully open-sourced, features a modern material design - inspired user interface styling, six different color schemes, separate toggles for desired update channels as well as a root install option so you won't have to look at the cumbersome package installer pop-up ever again.

A cool use-case for APKUpdater is that it can also serve as a standalone app store for those in need of one.

Just a reminder: The Google Play Store isn't available everywhere in the world, and the Amazon app store is basically crap.

If you wish to contribute to the project or get builds directly from their source - APKUpdater on GitHub. Alternatively, you can download it from APKMirror.

And at last, stand by because there is much more to follow.
