so I am creating an app for a client who wants multiple branded versions of the same app. My client would like to have all of these apps on his phone at the same time.
I figure to do this I will just change the package ID in config.xml and then run
ionic cordova build android however when I try to install more than one instance of the APK on the device (and my own Nexus 6p for that matter), it doesn’t work. I just get a generic “App Not Installed” error. This is a surprise because I figured if I change the package id, it effectively makes it a separate application, is that not the case?
If I remove the first instance of the application (even with a different id) and try again, it works.
I’ve installed an APK info tool just to make sure the ID is updating for each branded build and it is.
Am I missing a step?
