Google Play now offers more content besides apps, including Google Play Music, Google Play Books, and Google Play Movies & TV.
Like Apple's i Tunes for i OS, this makes Google Play an important hub for your digital life.
By clicking on the notification, a download Intent is fired, which downloads the new apk file by using the browser’s build-in download functionality: This is for sure the simplest approach.
A more sophisticated one could be to let the application itself download the new apk to the SD card and fire the install, afterwards removing the APK again etc…
So I have value which needs to be converted to an integer for doing a proper comparison with the device’s current version.
The check itself is quite simple: if the downloaded number is bigger than the current app’s version code number, a notification is triggered to the user, indicating the presence of a newer version.
The Google Play Store may have fewer restrictions that its i OS counterpart, but that doesn't mean that all apps make the cut.
While instant updates are a useful Android feature, they’re not typically crucial and can wait till you’ve reached a Wi-Fi covered zone like home or work.Google Play is a platform for you to view applications and other content before downloading to your phone.It indexes lots of information about each app, including the author's description, images, ratings, user comments and alternative suggestions.Using Google Play (formerly known as Android Market), you can consult the charts of the latest free and paid games and applications.Though Android is able to update applications automatically, Google Play allows you to check if you have the latest version of an app installed and download the latest update if necessary.
After the download completes, open the APK file and install the app.
