  • 5 : People like the developers of this app are the ones who really make the world a better place, I mean the app is absolutely awesome, it's visually appealing, it has lots of useful yet easy-to-use features, great documentation, AND it's completely free and open source with no ads which means they get nothing out of it! What freaking LEGENDS
  • 5 : Free, no ads, and highly-configurable... I love it! Now my Kustom Widgets can trigger Webhooks/IFTTT, Home Assistant, etc... awesome!
  • 5 : Exactly what I needed to connect the pieces for an automation task on my phone. The ability to set action as an app shortcut was critical. Thank you
  • 5 : Publishing such an app for free, and it's open-source as well? A really amazing app. Easy to use, and works as expected. Thank you for this.
  • 5 : best HTTP client on Android. user friendly. duplicate feature is great.
  • 5 : I'm using this as REST tester. Prettifying json responses in dialog window would be helpful though.
  • 5 : Works perfectly, a very clean design and concept
  • 5 : An excellent app to send commands via an API Gateway from the home screen of your phone. Dear developer, is there a way I could donate you some money or get a "premium" version of the app?
  • 5 : Thank you for what you have given us. Exactly what I was looking for. The bonus feature that delighted me was the variables option. As a fellow developer, I have a small suggestion to improvise on it. You can give an option to set the variable while executing a shortcut. for example, I am using a shortcut to turn on my AC via smart devices. The AC temperature is one of the body params. If I get an option to send the temperature variable value everytime I execute the shortcut, it will be helpful.
  • 2 : Just noticed that most of my shortcuts no longer work. I think this might be to do with implementation of javascript as pre/post actions. I was sending a GET command and then setting a variable and triggering a sequence of shortcuts, all to control an internet radio. Have tried lots of things to nail down what's going wrong. Variables are being set and read and shortcuts are being triggered I think possibly not in sequence or timing out? Unfortunately, the app is no longer useful to me.
  • 5 : Great App. There aren't any good functioning apps for Pi-Hole at the moment. With this app I was able to create widgets that send a POST to turn on or off ad filtering. The ability to create the widgets with this app is my favorite ability it has. I love that no apps need to open with them, I just get a little toast that says Pi-Hole disabled or enabled.
  • 5 : This is the best app I've used in a long time. It has a LOT of options and is built very, very well. It'd be great to see a basic comparison function. I'm currently using this with a horribly built API - the API always returns 200 even when there's an error and instead the user needs to parse the response body to figure out whether there's an issue. If I could compare a string instead of just updating a variable, that would be helpful. Or some way to specify what constitutes a failed req
  • 2 : privacy policy says no data is collected or sent to dev or 3rd party except to bugsnag for crash reports. i can confirm with Lumen that the device build fingerprint is sent to bugsnag prior to a crash and even before you have time to go in and disable crash-reporting in the settings! there are other apps out there that perform the function of this app without sending your device's private data up without consent. to the dev/s: promise me the app will not do this in future releases i may try out.
  • 5 : Was working great with curl to Energenies Mihome servers but since the update 2 days ago it no longer works at all.. Hope it'll be fixed soon. Email sent, I hope it helps. Been really good up until this blip. Added a star for the quick reply :) UPDATE Just downloaded v1.26.1 from github and apart from not allowing import the data from newer now removed app after I recreated the shortcuts they are now working so looks like a bug in the update, well the tiny bit that I use. 2nd UPDATE Developer has been REALLY helpful, tracked down the problem and will be fixed in an upcoming version, if you have a similar problem to mine check out the github page and get v1.26.1 as that seems to work ok. I'd really like to thank the developer for troubleshooting and sorting this so quickly.
  • 5 : Wow!!! That's perfect. I was on my way to write something from the ground up just so I could have 4 or 5 shortcuts on my home screen that would switch lights on/off or open gates by sending http requests to some Raspberry Pi or ESP32. The only missing feature I would request here is the ability to change the host of the URL based on wether you are connected to a specific wifi network or not. That would be awesome.

Q: What is an APK File?

A: An Android Package Kit (APK for short) is the package file format used by the Android operating system for distribution and installation of mobile applications. Just like Windows (PC) systems use an .exe file for installing software, Android does the same.

Q: Why CloudApks.com can guarantee APK 100% safe?

A: Whenever someone wants to download an APK file from CloudApks.com, we'll check the corresponding APK file on Google Play and allow user download it directly (of course, we'll cache it on our server). If the APK file does not exist on Google Play, we'll search it in our cache.

Q: If I install an APK from CloudApks.com, will I be able to update the app from the Play Store?

A: Yes, absolutely. The Play Store installs APKs it downloads from Google's servers, and sideloading from a site like CloudApks.com goes through a very similar process, except you're the one performing the downloading and initiating the installation (sideloading).
As soon as the Play Store finds a version of the app newer than the one you've sideloaded, it will commence an update.

Q: What are Android Application permissions?

A: Applications require access to certain systems within your device. When you install an application, you are notified of all of the permissions required to run that application.
