A few days ago, I built an app that I sent off to Cameroon for mother tongue translators to put on their phones. Their phones failed to recognize the file: Hdi_Bible-1.0.apk A guy helping them, changed the file name, removing the period between the 1 and 0. This change enabled their phones to recognize the file as an APK.
I’ve never before experienced this issue. Have any of you?
Unfortunately, I don’t know the make of their phones, nor what version of Android they are running. I’ve made this post simply to see if it is a real issue. I’m concerned that there could potentially be a lot of people out there who want our apps on their devices but get stuck with their phones not recognizing the APK files, because of the period in the appended version number (default in SAB). I’m sure this would never be an issue for people downloading/installing the APK from the Google Play Store… only for those sharing the file from device to device (Bluetooth, Xender, etc.)
