IMPORTANT APP UPDATE
Update 2.2 is now available with In-App updater, notifications frequency in Settings and add free. Update now!


CHANGELOG

In-App Updater: You won't need to update Beta Updater again using the APK. It includes an in-app updater (like Google Play updates).

Notifications frequency: Now it's possible to change the default value for WhatsApp updates notifications. Go to Settings to change it!

Ad free: no more ads. Beta Updater is ad free for everyone.

As you can see, the app is now ad free. No banner or interstitial ads are shown.

Why? The last weeks were not good for Beta Updater at all. Firstly, it was removed from Google Play due to a violation of the Content Privacy. And now, Google has disabled the ads of the app. 

Of course it does not mean I  am going to discontinue the app, it will not happen. I am going to continue with the development in my free time (also studying and doing other Android apps).

I just want to share with you my personal PayPal donation link. Please, it does not mean I need this donations. I repeat: I will continue it with or without donations. But if you want to pay me a coffee, some snacks, an afro hairstyle (?) or something like that, I really thank you. 
PayPal is the safer, easier way to pay online without revealing your credit card number.

NEWS ABOUT THE APP STATUS ON GOOGLE PLAY
Unfortunately, it isn't going to be available soon on Google Play. Google has rejected my appeal for reinstatement.

I will try to add some "License Agreement" to publish it again and avoid the Content Privacy, BUT I am not 100% sure that it's going to be enough. According to Google this is the reason: https://play.google.com/about/developer-content-policy.html#dangerous

The development of the app will continue on GitHub, where you can download the latest version without Google Play restrictions.

Well I guess google is on a random spree of removing apps and giving the same reason. One of my app got removed too and the reason was the same as above

Right now I am talking with Google trying to clarify the situation. Google Play tagged my app as "download or install applications from unknown sources unconsciously". Trying to clarify to Google that the user is always aware of the downloads.

Time to think about new solutions. First at all I thought to publish the same app on Google Play, but the FAB button goes to the WhatsApp website, where the user can download the latest Beta version. However I think it may be confusing and useless.

The second solution is to publish the app on Aptoide (another Android market less popular, but without this restrictions). I think it is the best solution and I will publish the app there within 2-3 days.

Another solution will be accepted. Thank you!

BAD NEWS. Google has just removed the app from Google Play.

Google reasons: Malicious scripts and password phishing scams are also prohibited on Google Play, as are apps that cause users to unknowingly download or install apps from sources outside of Google Play.

+Timo Nowitzki I have sent an appeal for reinstatement because the Content Policy says "app that cause users to unknowingly download or install apps from sources outside of Google Play". The app isn't downloading unconsciously.

In addition I have the 2.0.2 release ready with an "Agreement License". As soon as possible I will try to publish it (maybe with another URL (?)).

Please guys, read this message.

It is an English community and I know some of you speak Spanish, but we need to try to speak in English as much as possible. There are many others people in this community that speak English (or other language, like German or Portuguese) and we should try to speak the same language, so everybody can participate in the same conversation. It is very important to keep an unified community.

My mother language is Spanish and I know that is easier to speak this language, but we need to make an effort to speak the same language.

Thanks guys for making this community. All of you are awesome.

+Cristian Arribas Please try to speak in English, so people that don't speak Spanish can participate in the conversation.

I have in mind this bug and trying yo fix it. I think the bug happens when you tap in the Refresh button and then in the floating button. Thanks!
