Apk-signer vs ZipSigner, which is better ? | Detailed comparison


Apk-signer vs Zipsigner 2020

Apk-signer and ZipSigner are the most popular android apps that are used to sign apk files with your Android device. They assist when it comes to signing applications made with Sketchware because, Sketchware do not give us an ability to create special signing keys. Hello everyone, I'm Brian and today, I am going to do a short comparison between Apk-signer and Zipsigner. 

NOTE: This comparison/review is 100% based on the experience I got while using both Apps.

Description 

   The both Apps have a simple UI and they are both very easy to use. 
Apk-signer was released in July 29, 2014 by a developer named Hai Bison in the Google Play Store. Since then, the App has managed to earn 100k+ installs in the Play Store. This app also comes with great themes are very pleasant to the eyes.
