just moved

const fileTransfer: FileTransferObject = this.transfer.create();

in the platform.ready() !! and solved the problem. now problem is that i can not install the downloaded apk.
it openes the file and its the exact same apk installed on my device… but it says

there was a problem while parsing the package

only missing the s! for https in the url
