Effortlessly Download Gapps Packages with EasyGApps
Finding and downloading the correct Gapps package can sometimes be a daunting task, especially for those who are new to flashing custom ROMs. Goo.im and its corresponding Android application, GooManager, are great tools for the more experienced users who understand how to navigate its file system and how to read file names. For less advanced users, however, there may be difficulties navigating.
By implementing the Android API WebViews, XDA Senior Member MBQ_ has created EasyGApps, a simple solution that directs users straight to the source Gapps website, without the need to navigate through hundreds of other developer creations. The clean user interface makes the application very straightforward and easy to navigate. Four different package types are currently available including, Official Gapps, which bring users directly to the Gapps folder in goo.im; Banks GApps; Slim GApps; and PA GApps, which appears to be inaccessible at the moment. Other features include hardware acceleration for its UI, nine different application themes, optimized views, cleared cache on exit, and a directory of other things created by the developer.
