I snuck a little updater into my apps that breaks me free of the Google Play store by allowing users to download updates directly from my servers.

I'll do the same for my news/videos app (coming soon); I'll offer a Google Play version to kickstart growth; but then I'll flip the switch and start migrating users over to a version without censorship.

No Google means I can do what I want; run the ads I want; and not kowtow to their left-leaning political ideologies.
