Apps from the Relution App Store

In the Relution App Store all apps are available that have been added from the Managed Google Play Store. The advantage is the clear number of apps, because not the complete Managed Google Play Store is shown.

Private Apps

Additionally, the Managed Google Play Store offers the possibility to upload private apps. Private apps can also be understood as pay apps, as Google does not offer a pay option in the enterprise environment.

There are 3 options for this use case:

Installation via Private Play Store

Developers create apps with a Unique Package Name. These apps are uploaded to the private store on Google using a company-owned Google account and can then be selected via Relution in the Managed Google Play Store area.

Installation via Public Play Store

Developers make apps available to everyone in the public area of the Managed Google Play Store. These can be added to the Relution App Store as described above or selected directly from the Managed Google Play Store.

Manual installation via developer mode with manual distribution

To do this, developer options must be enabled for all devices that are to receive these apps and installation from unknown sources must be allowed. Then the .apk files are manually installed on the devices. In this case, the apps are not managed, cannot be managed via Relution and do not receive app updates.
