[GAPPs]{4.2.X}{4.3}{4.4} – Google App Package

My collection of GAPPs that I use in my ROMs. I prefer all inclusive ROMs, so I bundle my preferred apps with my ROMs. But I get asked for a separate package to flash on another ROM (such as Vanir ) frequently enough to finally break down publish a package.

This collection is derived from multiple sources (Mainly from Google Play. Also:, user releases, developer’s websites)

Works with:
Should work with any 4.2-4.4. ROM. Confirmed on dozens of devices

What was added + why: (3rd party apps either open source or developer encourages bundling with custom ROMs)
Apex Launch – Because it’s cool (Temp Discontinued for 4.4)
DashClock Widget – Because it’s cool (Temp Discontinued for 4.4)
Gmail – WTFBBQ?!? Some Gapps do not include this?
Google Voice – Every phone needs an answering service
Titanium Backup – For easier crack flashing
Terminal – Older version that supports logging
Amazon Appstore – Moar Options > fewer options

What has been removed + why:
Google Music, Google Ears, more
Anything available in play store that does not have immediate user benefit

Additional Add-ons:
Photosphere Gallery – Because it’s cool
4.3 Gallery – Because it’s +0.1 cooler
Face Detection – Get here
Wallet – Get here

Testing/Current Gapps
– Many of people have noted that my next release is often on the server a couple weeks early,…  I do this so people can benefit from updates before I acrew enough changes to justify an update.
– This testing file, will be updated in real time as I make changes, but will not have a log
– From now on, this file will always be labelled:

If people use it, I will keep it up-to-date. So say thanks if you find it useful.

Buy me a beer?
