Hello @criticalmodder

We’ve just updated cloud servers with a fix for the issue you described above. Could you kindly let us know whether fix works for you well?


Yah it’s Fixed thanks very much our clients was frustrated Because of renaming the apk to zip everytime thanks to the backendless team for the fix btw what was the issue ?


It was caused by change which made server to return explitily mime type for files. For APK files server returned no mime type at all. I asume that when no mime type was returned Chrome on Android tried to guess type of the file and ended with .zip extension by some reason since APK file itself is actually ZIP file with different extension.
