I am facing issue like -

Let's say i have 1 app published
People installs it
New update needed
I re build new apk of same app with little change or major change
I r-publish the apk

User downloads it - tries to install it - they gets signature mismatch

Solution : User needs to uninstall old apk and then he / she can install the latest [ new ] apk else he/she can not install the new apk.

Error : App conflicts + Signature error

Help : How to avaoid this thus users can install and update the app right away by installing the new version?

Thanks in advance,

    NOT sure anyone yet no replied but

    the fix is --

    USE SAME KEYSTORE FILE for all apk release of that kind of app all the time ...You will not get any signature or app not installed issue at all!!
