Using APKUpdater Android users can now download Android apps and update them without actually using the Google Play Store. Most of us are used to downloading updates on your Android phones and tablets using Google Play but there are few regions where Play Store is not yet supported or devices do not ship with Play Store services needed to perform such actions. Examples include, Chinese devices from manufacturers like Xiaomi or Huawei do not contain Play Services making difficult for users to download apps and keep them updated. For this reason, XDA developer Rumboalla, created an app that allows users to keep Play Store apps updated without having to install Play Store.

APKUpdater allow users to download Android apps on their devices when they don’t have access to Play Store services or limited by their manufacturers. This not only helps in managing downloads but also notifies you about the updates so you don’t have to manually check and update your apps. This works on both rooted and non-rooted devices but on rooted devices APKUpdater can automatically update the apps just like Google Play Store – without asking user permission – in the background. Read ahead to download and install APKUpdater on your device.
