SDK Monitor

Display and monitor the targetSDK from installed apps

This app tracks changes on targetSDK from your apps. Starting November 1st, 2018, Google is requiring all app updates to target at least 26 (28 is the latest).

The idea behind this project was to make it easy to see the apps which are "voluntarily" being updated regularly, and the ones that are resisting until the last second.

Packages

Although APK downloads are available below to give you the choice, you should be aware that by installing that way you will not receive update notifications and it's a less secure way to download. We recommend that you install the F-Droid client and use that.
