sideloaded apps: opinions & experiences

Hi all, 


as we know there is a possibility to sideload android apps. 


But what are your experiences or also opionions on that?

Did you face any disadvantages? Do you think this will harm the original system (problems lik faster battery down, or speed of OS10 itself, etc.)?

Re: sideloaded apps: opinions & experiences

There's not a problem at all in doing so.


Some apps will react different than others. It will not harm the "original system".

You can always remove the sideloaded app if you want.
