App Center requires you to sign in to App Center (cerate an account or social login), and then download the
.apk file and install it. I don't see this as much different from just sending people a link to the
.apk file to download. At least direct downloads don't make you sign in. And it still gives you that security warning..
And if i open the link (from the email) on my desktop, it tells me the app is not compatible with Linux. Duh.
I prefer Firebase over this.
