Hi All,

We are running a proprietary system that we don't want to share with the wide world. Is there a way to do software distribution without the app store?
Maybe we can host out own app store?

Thnx for looking.

I have your same needs, so I implemented this - 5 years ago.
Apps automatically update upon version number change - however it still requires the user to accept (install) update...

THnx Harris, Didn't know that it is that easy.

Is there a way to bypass the user acknowledgement and get the phone to install the newer version in the background?

Nope... It is an Android thing... User is required in the process... (otherwise, think of havoc one could potentially reek).
