We have all accepted the fact that some amazing Android apps might not be hosted on the Google Play Store, and that means you have to sideload them if you want to get their awesome functionality on your smartphone as well. But without the Play Store, you know that these APKs are never automatically updated, so you must normally look on the internet for a newer version when you need a bugfix.

Remember the procedure by reading this guide on how to easily Sideload an Application on Android.

Are you tired of doing that? The issue is that all your App data and settings get deleted and you must set it again.

Thankfully, the story has now changed thanks to developer rumboalla who has created a new app that will do all of the internet searching instead of you. Thanks to this app known as APK Updater, you will get a notification every time your Sideloaded app has an update. Then, this easily downloads the perfect updates from APKMirror, APKPure, and even the Play Store, so you can update all of your unofficial apps with no other complications.

Don’t you believe that things can be that simple? Just take a look:
