Update Notifier: Crowd Edition
5,000 - 10,000 downloadsAdd this app to your lists
This is the "crowd-powered" edition of the app. What does that mean? The available APIs to query for app versions are mostly out of date most of the time :( To overcome this issue, I had the following idea:
Users are querying for app versions of their installed apps all the time. Why not just send THEIR app version infos with the query and build the database with THOSE infos.
That way, we are totally independent of any third-party API or anything (even the Play Store itself!). All the information comes from real users and their actually installed apps. I hope this approach will work out well.
Enjoy realtime-app-version-informations! :)
Privacy notice: The app version infos are transmitted totally anonymous! There are 3 elements transfered for each
app: package name, version code an version name. That's it, no device id, email address, or anything!
PLEASE instead of posting bad ratings, send me email so that i can fix possible bugs. I cannot react to bad ratings nor can i fix those bugs :(
Android Market update notification not working properly for you? No problem! App Update Notifier (Crowd Edition) is the solution.
App Update Notifier (Crowd Edition) not only checks apps that you installed through the Android Market, but ALL your installed apps, even those from third party markets...
Also features an optional background service which notifies you automatically if new updates for your installed apps become available.
* Improved error handling/reporting
v126.96.36.199 & v188.8.131.52 & v184.108.40.206:
* FC fixes
* Based on the feedback in the XDA discussion thread: versions are now grouped by device model and grouped by Android version. Additionally other processes have been added to drastically reduce the number of false positives!
!!NOTE!! Please don't give bad ratings or send emails because updates are not found anymore, the index will have to adjust to that new logic, please give it some time :)
