Package names¶QGIS for android is packaged in various apk.
- QGIS Installer: it is a small apk, that takes care of listing all the available versions and download one of these. This installer is needed due to a limitation of 50MB per apk file on the market.
- QGIS-nightly[-armeabi].apk: these are Debug enabled builds automatically created every night based on the latest available code.
- QGIS-master-NAME[-armeabi].apk: these are punctual releases that are somehow tested and are created when important changes are available.
All packages including the -armeabi suffix don't include armeabi v7a optimized (but highly unstable at the moment)code that should run much faster on newish hardware (most 10" tabs support this).
updating to a new version doesn't require uninstalling the previously installed app.
