    Frequently Asked Questions


    Snap is great! Can I donate money to you?

    I really don’t expect any compensation for creating Snap, I just was annoyed with manually transferring APKs and using those other app stores and thought I could make a native Cascades app that downloads them directly from Google Play. After request from several of you, I’ve added a tiny donate button to the bottom of this post.

    This is really cool. Thanks!

    Posted from the Shield Helicarrier on a Z30

    EDIT: It works perfectly, however, I assume it's using the American app store? (I could be wrong)

    A few apps I am searching for are not being found, and I assume it's because those are specifically Canadian apps.

    It's OK, I can get those apks on my own, it would have just been nice.

    Hi. I now have Snap sideloaded. Your app runs well, searches fine and downloads most GP apps I tested, with ease. However, when I select 'Download' of the Canadian Tire (free app) it starts the browser and I just get the message...

    {"error":Package not found/not free"}

    I have been using Pauls Blog APK Downloader, all day today, to extract APKs from GP, so I know it should work on my Z10.

    Cheers and thanks for the App. I have a feeling this will take off.

    I like the Icon too.

    Yes, a Canadian version would be sweet. Thanks for this so far. A little tweeting and it'll be perfect.

    Yikes! It's supposed to launch the browser with the apk link! I'll take a look and see if I'm able to reproduce the problem!

    What app did this happen with? (or is it any app?)

    Can you add the option to input carrier info (like apk leecher), certain apps are not available without proper carrier info, vlc and reebee for example

    Thanks for making a native app, and so quickly too! I'll try to sideload this later, though I've run out of apps I want to download!
