Yalp Store Apk Latest Version
If root is available, Yalp Store can update your apps in background, install and uninstall system apps.
To supplement the features related to Google Play, Yalp Store has ordinary package manager features: listing, running, installing and uninstalling local apps.
Yalp Store lets you download apps from Google Play Store apk files. It can search for updates of installed apps and lets you search for other apps. Yalp saves downloaded apks to your default download folder. Other features include browsing categories, viewing and leaving reviews, black/whitelisting apps for updates, filtering apps by being free/paid and containing/not containing ads.
Yalp Store can be installed as a system app to gain background package installation permission. In this case, the “Unknown sources” setting can be left off. You can let Yalp Store self-install as a system app, or get the OTA zip from the releases page.
How does it work?
Yalp Store uses the same (protobuf) API the android Play Store app uses. It downloads apks directly from Google servers.
By default Yalp Store connects to Google services using a built-in account, so you do not have to own a Google account to use it. The only reason to use a live Google account is to access the paid apps you own.
Each time you log in a new Google Play Services Framework id (also known as device id) is generated using your device parameters. The list of parameters Google requires for that is rather long (example). They are used for app filtering and compatibility checks on the server side. It is possible to mimic a different device. In yalp store apk mirror settings you will find a list of bundled device definitions. Note that no personal info is disclosed, only technical information about your device.
When the GSF id is ready, your email and password (if you provided them) are used to generate an authorization token. The authorization token is used to sign all Play Store API requests. Your password is used only once and is not stored, the token is enough for all the requests.
Why would I use it?
If you are content with Google Play Store app, you will not need this app.
The point of Yalp Store is to be small and independent from Google Services Framework. As time passed, Google Services Framework and Google Play Store apps grew in size, which made them almost too big for old phones (Nexus One has 150Mb memory available for apps, half of it would be taken by Google apps). Another reason to use Yalp Store is if you frequently flash experimental ROMs. This often breaks gapps and even prevents their reinstallation. In this situation Yalp will still work.
