Does Yalp no longer work for accessing the PlayStore, or is there some action I haven't taken?

When I got my Gemini a year ago, I used Yalp to grab a lot of the basic stuff, but I wanted to look for something just now, and all I get is "No Network Connection". I am connected, as everything else works, but no Yalp!

Any clues?

Seems to work OK here.

(It seems to report errors occasionally, but is fine again next time. Dunno if that's something on Google's side, an issue with Yalp, or something less diredct, but it's worth retrying after a while.)

Huh... Still dead for me. For interest, what rev of yalp do you have? Mine seems to be 0.41 (installed June last year). Maybe I should just reinstall..

I have had intermittent issues with Yalp due to Google API changes. I switched to Aurora Store instead, which is a Yalp fork that is more frequently updated. It is also in F-Droid. Aurora also has more features.

Thanks, I've installed Aurora.

It's not happy in landscape mode -- too many bars across the screen, leaving the apps squashed up in the middle. And updating multiple apps is a bit fiddly. But the important stuff seems to work well.

Sorry -- didn't check in here for a while... (only happens when I'm in Linux wink.gif

I updated to 0.45-legacy, and at first I was still getting errors, (didn't seem to recognize the Yalp account) but finally it connected, and seems to work.

I may try Aurora later.

Thanks.
