Error message when installing apk, There was a problem parsing the Android package

Post by Mark6921260 »

Hello appery.io team,

My app is named, Titan FX
I have not made any changes to the Source tab.
I have not had any errors when testing in the browser or when I test on my Android device using the appery.io tester app
My test device is running android 7.0

Once I was satisfied with testing, I exported the .apk. I tried to install the apk on my test device and got teh error message, "There was a problem parsing the package."

I have made my app Shareable with Support to see if you can recreate the issue.

I am more than happy to answer and questions to help.

Ok, so the issue was that I had built the app for android OS 8 and my testing device was using 7.
Once I rebuilt the apk using sdk android 7.0, it was fine.
