Open Gapps Introduces It's Own App [APK Download]
Open Gapps is undoubtedly one of the most popular Google application variants of all time. The developers behind Open Gapps have now embedded all the core features of their website inside a 3.9MB application.
The Open Gapps application follows the material guidelines laid down by Google and through the means of the application you can now easily download the suitable Gapps package for your device. The application will automatically detect the Android architecture and the Android version the device is running on. You can even manually select the CPU architecture and Android version in case you are planning to move over to a different custom ROM with a different Android version and need a suitable Gapps package for the same. After you are done with the selection of the CPU type and Android version, you will be presented with a list of 8 Gapps packages you can chosse from. These include: aroma, super stock, full, mini, nano, micro, pico.
To change the CPU architecture and Android version any time, you can make use of the change selection button.
The application asks only for two permissions, which are storage and root access. By granting root access to the application, Open Gapps will then seamlessly install the Gapps for you. If the "Wipe Cache/Dalvik" option is checked in, both the Dalvik and the Cache partitions will be wiped the next time you reboot your device. Wiping of these two partitions is essential in order to let the Gapps settle in and to avoid an array of force closes.
The settings menu of the application also lets you use customise the download location of the Gapps and whether or not to download the Gapps only on Wi-Fi. In case you are comfortable to download the Google applications over your mobile data, then you can leave this option unchecked.
After tapping on the download button, the Open Gapps application will automatically initiate the download. The download will be followed by a video ad. However, the rest of the application is ad-free.
If you have enabled a ad-blocker, then the app will politely ask you to disable it. We will recommend you to do the same. The Support page inside the app contains information about the Open GApps project and also harbours an option to donate to the team behind this wonderful project.
To get you familiar with the app interface, we are in process of uploading a video overview of the same. We will update the post as and when the video upload is complete.
To download the app, you can either head over to the Play Store by clicking on this link or you can grab the APK by clicking here.
For curious folks out there, there is also an option in the 'About' section which shows whether you have found the hidden easter egg or not. We haven't found it yet. If you do, let us know in the comments section below.
