Install/Update APK

Hi,

MoSync should provide a method to install an APK unattended. The implementation seams to be easy using PackageManager and android.permission.INSTALL_PACKAGES.

Why?

1) My mobile operator blocks downloading non-marketplace APKs;
2) I must force users to use the latetest version;
3) OTA example has a problem: The "new" program.comb shoud be stored as a DataStore. If user cleans data (from Android settings menu), it restores to the original one.
4) I cannot expect users to have the latest APK installed manually.

Regards,

Diego

Deigo, We are currently

Deigo,

We are currently working on making Android and its packaging better. And your feedback does point to an interesting scenario. We will take that into consideration for our upcoming release. BTW, what non-marketplace are you referring to? Where is your app?

Hi, I develop sfa software,

Hi,

I develop sfa software, so each sales manager controls what is installed in each palm. My sync server automatically delivers app and updates (install .prc, .exe, .dll) depending on lots of criterias. In other words, my app is not available in any public site.

Regards,

Diego
