How to Downgrade any Android app Easily?

Updating the apps brings more cool features and bug fixes but sometime it brings more bugs. Phone crashes and the apps stops working, just because the updated app had some bug. This is not the pleasant, when you expected to receive more cool features on your updated app but the only thing you receive is unexpected close down of your app and it stops working.


Downgrading the app to the previous version is the solution. But android doesn’t support downgrading any apps but only updating. If you are a developer and if you want to go on technical side then you could use your computer to downgrade any apps. You can install lower version over actual (higher) version of app using android feature “pm install -r -d file.apk”  command of Unix systems.wpid-wp-1406551339771.png
