The whole answer relies on the fact that when this query is made (requires adb) : adb shell pm list packages -3 -i the installer for an app is listed in the output next to app's package name. We can filter the installer names in that output to single out apps not installed from Play Store. Note: if you've a rooted Android OS, you may check ...

Not every developer creates and puts a premium version of an app separately into a market. A developer can have a single app but have mechanism to make the user unlock certain parts of the app by paying for it. This is called in-app billing. Google in the document In-app Billing noted: In-app Billing is a Google Play service that lets you sell digital ...

Currently this is not possible. You can view apps by category, and search by keywords, but you cannot see individual features of an app. When you use Wikipedia, you're comparing software that does the same task, so it is easy to compare. However, if every app listed every feature in a standardised way, there would be literally thousands of options and it ...

The problem has been fixed. I don't know what caused it to fix itself, but here is the list of what I tried - Clear application data of Google Play Services and Google Services Framework.

Just a heads up. I read this little post on XDA and another user's resolution was: -Go to Settings->Applications->Manage Applications->All -Select "Clear Data" for Google Play Services and Google Service Framework -Reboot the device This would be a good first start. I did some more digging (as I am unable to recreate the fault) and found it also ...

Another candidate just appeared at the horizon. I've not yet tested it, but it sounds very promising: StorePrefs. Requirements: rooted device Xposed installed Promises: Blocking rapid update Ignoring some updates (When you have update available in My Applications in Playstore just long click on this update to ignore it) Being an Xposed module, it ...

This may explain : from Google Play help forum Joe Ellet in his post dated 3/18/15 says There are two lists. One is your active devices. That one should be up-to-date. The other is the record of all devices you have used to make a purchase on Google Play. That list has nothing to do with your current inventory and cannot be used for any sort of ...

If your phone is rooted and the game detects it, then it will ask for root access in an attempt to prevent you from cheating, blocking ads, etc. If you deny root access, the game will most likely exit or crash. You have two choices if you really want to play the game: Play on a non-rooted device. Install Xposed Framework with RootCloak module on your ...

It shouldn't be... There is no viable reason I can think of for a game to request or need root permissions. If this game is from an official channel like Play Store, Amazon App Store, or F-Droid, do not grant the permission and remove it immediately. This should also be reported to the appropriate app market and given a comment or review warning other users ...

Flash gapps again and clear data with titanium backup. Clear dalvik cache and provide more information about your problem.

Just waiting may fix it if there is some sort of slow sync between Google services. A simple reboot might fix it. I would try deleting your cache and data for the play store app as well. If that doesn't work try deleting and re-adding your Google account under settings > Accounts > Google.

You can use Lucky Patcher to remove system apps (freeze package or uninstall), although, I recommend not doing so, because it can result in a soft-brick.

Apkmirror.com is run by the same people behind AndroidPolice.com, one of the biggest Android news websites. All uploads are manually vetted and approved, and only free apps are allowed so you won't find any 'cracked' apks or 'warez'. As you already have the Play Store installed, only an apk signed with the same key as the currently installed version will be ...

Of course you can, I think your issue here is in the installation of the software applications? Play only allows you to install to one device at a time, but you should see both tablets in the install drop down menu, let it install on one and then click the "Installed" button and it should present the same menu to select a device, select the seconds tablet ...

Yes you can have multiple devices on one email account. When using the Play Store from the PC, it will give you the option of which device you want the app installed to. Once selected, the app will take a few minutes to download and install (depending on Internet reception). After that you can install that same app on ANY other devices you have. I currently ...

This should be entirely possible. Try rebooting each device & going into Applications > Google Play Store > clear Data & Cache. You can also try signing out of the website on your PC and then signing back it.

I was also struggling to get an old HTC Flyer tablet, running a Honey Comb ROM (LeeDroid v4.3.0), to connect to Google Play after a factory reset. I tried many many things, but this was what resolved the issue: Downloaded and installed the latest version of both Google Play Services and Google Play Store available for Honey Comb, which as of today (Jan 27, ...

If the Google Play Books app is installed then you can disable that using the method you linked to in your question. However, the store-front of Google Play Books is part of the Google Play Store and cannot be disabled. Maybe it could be hidden with some root modification but I doubt whether such a modification to do this exists. I suspect much of this is ...

Try moving the app to the SD Card and uninstall it, if persist move it again to the phone and uninstall it, it works in my LG G3 when that happens

Clearly, the app's developer has changed the minimum API level for that particular app. So the latest version won't work on your version of Android. You can side-load the APK file of an earlier version onto your device to get it working again. You may request the app's developer for an older APK or you can download from other sites that provide APKs. ...

There is a term called "Buyer Beware". The same way old phones or old operating systems are stopped being supported, the apps can also share the same fate. Especially when considering the fact that apps evolve much faster than phones or OSes. Technically when you buy something, a contract is made between two sides that both sides are obligated to abide. If ...

Can an app installed from Play Store being dropped support due to changing requirement in Android version?

The whole answer relies on the fact that when this query is made: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=PKG_NAME # PKG_NAME is the package name of an app among other things, the HTTP code in the returned headers in most of the cases would either be: 404 (resource not found) - app not available 200 (success) - app available 403 (forbidden) - ...

I faced this same problem a while ago. I could think of two things here. 1. In my case, I had problem with my router. Other devices connected to the same router had no issues. I had to reset the router and everything worked fine after connecting the device back to it. 2. Then, you say you have 'Clear cache data from playstore app' but have you cleared the ...

This is not a complete answer but answers some of the points: How do I really disable the updates? Like, for real, no exceptions? You can use my answer or Craig's answer for that. No exceptions, but requires root access. The solution is to detach Google Chrome from Play Store's device specific database stored in the device itself. It is always ...

That Google Chrome update is horrendous! It's being forced outside of Play Store, but there is a way to disable it. It's pretty ugly, but here's how I stopped it, while keeping Play Services (Gmail, Maps, etc): Go into Application Manager, scroll over to the "All" tab, and find "Download manager". Once you disable that, there will be NO updates from ...

Google is currently investigating this issue with ...

It is very much possible that support for API level 15 or below has been dropped for all the current Chrome builds of version 47.0.2526.83 or perhaps it has been so for the last few versions as well. I updated my Chrome app in Jelly Bean 4.2.1 and I can see that the minimum API level it requires is 16 and is targeted at 23. Android versions corresponding to ...
