However, it's not always ideal to just let them update without your permission.
Step Three Simply un-tick the box where it says 'Auto-update apps' and your apps will need your permission to download updates.
Some of the best Android apps are not hosted on the Google Play Store, and that means you have to sideload them if you want to get their awesome functionality.
From here, select any app that needs updating, and you'll be taken directly to a web page where you can download the newer version of this APK.
You can control whether or not your Android auto-updates apps in Google Play.
With everything set up, you can kick back and relax, because APKUpdater will check for updates to all of your installed apps silently in the background.
When it finds any newer versions, you'll get a notification—just tap this to proceed.

If there isn't an icon on your homescreen then look in the app menu.
Step Two Tap the menu button (three square dots) located at the top right hand side of the screen and select 'Settings'.
Then, towards the bottom of the menu, you can enable additional app sources—these are the sites where APKUpdater will check for new versions of your sideloaded apps.
