APKMirror

An unofficial client for the gratis app download site APKMirror
New in version 1.2
Since last update:
- Using Gradle 5.0!
- Migrated "app" to "appCompat"
- Migrated to AndroidX
- Updated BottomBar library fork to v2.5.0 (migration to AndroidX)
- Delete contributor strings from the app (and put them in the README.md of the project), which will hopefully shrink the APK size a bit

Browses APKMirror using a WebView. APKMirror provides APKs, as the name quite obviously suggests. It saves you the trouble of having to open up a browser and visit APKMirror by typing the URL, and is the sole purpose of this app existing (because who uses stupid boring browsers to browse sites when you can create an entire app for a site, amirite?).

Features

  • Quick loading (depends on phone)
  • Ability to choose any download manager
  • Clean material design (I think)
  • Small-ish APK size

Things that would constitute as Anti-Features (that aren't already shown by F-Droid)

  • The app itself does NOT contain any ad libraries whatsoever (it is completely FOSS).

However, as anyone who has visited the APKMirror site probably knows, they do display ads. As this app utilizes a WebView, the site's ads will also end up being displayed in the app. Remember that they show ads to be able to keep their site up, so try not to think too harshly of them.

This app has features you may not like.

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.
