of crashes. One provided the stack trace and that crash is possible
only if they got a truncated download. I don't know if any of you have
perused an apk but the executable and resources are at the end. I've
seen crash reports before from users who provided the stack trace that
indicated that the app couldn't find a resource or in one case the
Google Maps library dex. File integrity checks have been around since
x-modem but there appears to be no such thing when downloading with Play.
And often after suggesting uninstalling and reinstalling the app worked
for those who had the crash. Today I suggested two reports that they do
that but it is still crashing. Here's another thing: we can't download
our own apks to do a bit check even length check on the download. I can
understand why they maybe won't do that but they could provide 1) the
full byte count of the upload and 2) MD5 and SHA1 checksums to see if
they match the files we upload. That should be easy to provide. With
only two reports I don't yet want to revert the apk in question as it
might just be a quirk of their devices (as if devices don't have quirks
nowadays). And these reports are from India which has crappy telecom
Anyway I've posted a feedback on this to Play and providing this here
because if you notice they now say to post Play problems on this group.
