And there it is! By adding this 1 liner to your AndroidManifest.xml file, you're good to go! (Provided your entire app download size is under 10 MB, and you only have a single module 😅)
Instant apps have a number of limitations, and they don't suit every use case. Only a subset of permissions are allow, and SET_WALLPAPER is not covered. This means that our instant app is really just a demo, and not fully functional. When a user tries to set a wallpaper, they get hit with this prompt:
This comes from the Google Play services Instant App library.
Which provides some convenient methods to handle conversions!
It's tricky to deduce this from the Play Console analytics, but the short answer is kindof! A healthy percentage of users who downloaded the instant app convert to the paid version, but we are still seeing refunds. Ultimately, it's an on going process to improve the overall app, and its feature to minimise refunds. Price point is a key factor also. We plan to go into more detail in future posts on sales & growth of Cartogram, so stay tuned!
