1. It cannot start and ask me for Java install?

This tool is a Java application, so you need at least JRE for it to run. If you encounter any problem in starting up Real APK Leecher, get the latest JRE on Oracle site.

2. Is this tool safe for me to provide my Gmail account?

Well, tell you the truth that i really didn’t want this tool to ask your account like that, but it must do that. The API acts more like an phone emulator, access Google Play with the same way when you use your phone to do that. So that’s why you need provider your Gmail account. I don’t have anything to do with your account. If not sure, make a junk account to use this tool.

3. Does this tool work with paid apps?

No! Only apps you paid with your account, not any paid apps.

4. The status shows “Login successfully” but “Cannot load the list. Please check your internet connection.”?

First, make sure your device id doesn’t contain any space. Then check your internet connection to see if you have network with private DNS, proxy that block Java Application. Also check your antivirus firewall.

5. Many apps i expected with the search term didn’t show up and download failed due to bad device ID or internet connection?

There are 4 reasons cause this error:

  • Commonly, it happens if you provide wrong device id. So check your device id carefully.
  • You provide wrong the path which the tool uses to save the downloaded apks.
  • The app you’re downloading is a paid app and you didn’t purchased it with your account.
  • Your internet connection

6. Download is fine but there are some apps i couldn’t find it on search result?

Maybe the apps you want has some restrictions on it. See the changelogs for version 1.2.3


7. Some big apks download reach 100% and keep counting back from start?

Don’t mention it. The download finishes when the Cancel button is disabled. That’s a sign.

That is all if you encounter any problem let me know in the comment box below
