Share My Creation Personal PlayStore (B4A/B4J) - Source Code

Hello everyone :)

*Stating off by thanking @Erel for making this possible for every single one of us ♥

As it's been discussed here :

We are more than happy to announce this really great project :
Personal Playstore

Every company/developer has multi projects and multi clients.
With each update the company/developer has to contact the client to let them know that there is a new update and they have to install it, either from playstore or by sending them an APK.
Also the more clients the more difficult to manage subscriptions.

With that being said, this project is used for :
1- Managing subscriptions
2- Managing own applications
3- Making it easier for the clients to install/update your own apps
4- One Store that contains only your projects (Own portfolio)
5- Monitor the clients installs (Professional Dashboard)
6- Monitor the current installed version on the client phone (very useful when a bug is reported so you can know the client is using the latest update)
7- Live Support
8- The client is able to keep track of his/her subscriptions

This project is built using :
1- B4A
2- B4J Web App
3- MS SQL
4- JRDC2

Some of many features :
-If the client subscription has ended then once he/she opens the app they will get a reminder to renew and they won't be able to update/install any app.
-Just like google playstore, when an update is uploaded, the client will be able to view if there is a new update and the information of that update (Description, Version code, Version name, etc..)

Project Release Date : 1 Week (20-07-2021 11:00 PM GMT 3+)
Project Price : 30$ Only




As always, Thank You,
Saif

Hi,
1. B4J App - is this for store administration only or can also be used to host Windows applications (exe, msi files).
2. Not sure if this is even possible but could this be extended to iOS? I have little experience with iOS and absolutely no experience with any side loading of iOS applications. This is why I may sound stupid.

Hello,

1- The B4J Web App is used for the administrator to upload the apps, monitor clients subscriptions, apps installs and versions, upload apps updates. (Android Management)
2- Unfortunately it's only for android because IOS requires an external certificate to be installed on the device for each app you upload which can be a real headache.

Thank you,
Saif

If I understand correctly, this your good initiative targets only Android mobile apps(.APK). In future update, can you extend it to cover wear apps so that clients can have other options to download either mobile .APK or wear .apk where applicable since b4a is easy to develop wear apps?

2. For desktop apps (window, Mac and Linux), I know monitoring and licensing may not work under the same logic as that of Android and wear apps, however, can simple but secured separate licencing subscription be done for desktop apps so that programmer can be able to monitor, set trial date, advertise and publish desktop, mobile and wear apps on single interface of personal play store you are designing. OS and platform can be used to distinguish between mobile, desktop and wear apps for clients before downloading from their options

The possibilities for this project are endless, Currently it's only for android but making it for Windows apps as well is fairly easy and possible to do (Same functions, same background service) so you can use it for windows as well by creating the app store for windows (B4J).

Basically this is an app store and you can tailor it to your needs :)

Ok, no problem, I will look at the code when it is published, just help make the code readable and simple to adapt so it can easily be tailored to individual need. Thank you Saif, is a great work already

Hello Dear,

Yes, all the projects (B4A + B4J + MS SQL) are open source.

because i need to implement it in my own app
We have created a background service which you can import it into your own apps and it will check the licenses for each client by checking with the database using the deviceID.

Thank you,
Saif

Nice,
Are other users able to publish their own apps to this appstore and track them? Maybe after a review process from my side.

Hello Dear,

No, this project is for the business owners and developers that have multiple apps and multiple clients to help them manage their clients information and licenses.
Also to track the installs and make it easier for the clients to get the latest updates and view the company/developer portfolio.

Thank you,

This part is easy to do by creating multiple admin users and each user is able to have his/her own store :)

We always do updates on our projects so maybe in the future we will release an update containing the above :)

Thanks anyway,Great work and keep goin!
Thank you my dear for your kind words ♥
