I'd still be greatly interested in updates on older MacOS RP-App versions, like for MacOS 10.13 ...even after years!
Would there by any chance of getting one, ever? 
(I guess, perhaps not?)

Same goes for LInux ...

Another site generally considered "ok" to download APK files from would be APK-Mirror. It doesn't ask to download any proprietary software-piece to merge downloads, as Apkpure does with some of their downloads. - Still all those downloads are "community-created" which means, you're always at risk of bugs or worse (implemented malware e.g.).

F-droid is safest in general, but their guidelines are strictest concerning adherence to free and open-source software, as well as privacy. - It is probably why the RP app isn't found in their store, as RP is using services from Google and/ or similar (I guess).

Thanks Jarro


I'm a bit paranoid installing apk's from websites :) - plus that site seems to want me to install a third party installer to then install RP

No rush about F-droid, I'll use the web player in meantime on my phone

Thanks again

Harry


PS Good news about the independence from google's frameworks .... a BIG thank you :)

Hi
We don't require play services.  It's only used/needed for chromecast.
You may run into issues copying apps between devices since the playstore  started distributing custom versions of apps targeted at devices to save space.

Try downloading from here.

Getting the app on F-droid has been on the todo list.   I'll see if I can get that done today.



Thanks Jarro

Hi,

I use motorola phones because I can disable google play store and google play services without root (I then use the F-droid app store)

As RP is not available on F-droid.... I have a friend who has has RP installed via google play store and they use an apk extractor app to send me the latest apk, which i then install manually on my phone

Everything usually worked fine, but when I tried to install the latest version apk, the app just closes on open


Is the RP app now dependent on having google play services to function?

Thanks

Harry
