Thank you for your answer.
I just want to build up some app in the same theme,and the app can extend or update conveniently.
for instance, games. a game plugin system that can download more games,or update the games to the new version.
Can android support to do this?

Hello Stephen,

there at least is a Permission which allows you to install other application-packages (apk):

Code: Select all
public static final String INSTALL_PACKAGES
Allows an application to install packages.
Constant Value: "android.permission.INSTALL_PACKAGES"
