Huawei may not include either the services or the Google apps on their new devices. Neither Google Play, although the company has its own application store, Huawei App Gallerythough you are missing many popular apps. To solve this, Huawei is testing in germany another app, which helps you to download apps from other sources.
On test in germany, Huawei describes App Search as an application that helps you to install “applications that are not yet in the App Gallery.” In practice, the application collects information from various sources like APKMirror, APKMonk, APKPure and other, as well as ordered by way of application store.
A app additional App Gallery
App Search try to fill the gap that Huawei App Gallery can not fill. Recall that Huawei may not include your apps or Google services on their terminals. Google for its part can only work with Huawei in the devices released before may 16, which may not include your apps in the App Gallery, even in the course of that work without Google Services.
On the other hand, Huawei can’t list applications on its official store without the permission of their creators. App Gallery, in addition, it is the shop with a more strict control of identity: all the developers required to verify their identity with photos of their identity documents such as identity card or passport. What would be the solution? Make a compilation of sources of third parties.
App Search is an add-on application to Huawei App Gallery. Your objective is that you download applications regardless of where they are located. This a medley that mixes results from App Gallery, APKMirror, Amazon App Store, APKMonk, APKPure, official websites and download web-apps.
The application is for the time being available in German, and displays the list of applications sorted first by a Top 12 popular applicationsin addition to using a search engine and categories. It is not clear how many applications are included, although the selection of this particular version includes several local applications in germany, so the list might change if it launches in other regions.
Technically, App Search is a new way to facilitate the downloading of applications, but it has a problem: many applications they still need the services of Google. That is to say, you can install Google Maps with App Search, since the link to APKMirror, but Google Maps does not work without the Google services.
In some cases, App Search also has a solution for this. For example, the list of YouTube does not list APK files to install, but that urges you to visit the official website and add a direct link to the web in your home page. Although the official application of YouTube needs Google services to work, there is no problem to visit the web page.
Taking into account the great number of limitations faced by Huawei, App Search is a curious way out of stepsimilar to other repositories, like for example UpToDown. Will not be useful in 100% of cases, but you can at least help you find some applications that for some reason are not in their store but yes in other places.
