Google Apps (Gapps) for Android Lollipop 5.x.x for Custom Roms
Like other developers and ROM testers, I am also tired of searching for latest or older build of Gapps every time I flash or write something new. So, this page will act as a placeholder for various sources of Google Gapps for Android Lollipop 5.x.x for all custom ROMS.
What are Gapps?
As per Cyanogen Wiki,
Google Apps are the proprietary Google-branded applications that come pre-installed with most Android devices, such as the Play Store, Gmail, Maps, etc. Due to licensing restrictions, these apps cannot come pre-installed with CyanogenMod and must be installed separately. The Google Apps are not required to boot or run CyanogenMod, however many users find them beneficial to take full advantage of the Android ecosystem.
What’s with 5.x.x?
‘5.x.x’ means that these packages will be compatible with any lollipop builds, may be it 5.0, 5.0.1, 5.0.2, 5.1, or 5.1.1. Upcoming versions may also be supported but not tested until declared by developer of ROM.
Banks Gapps – Banks packages are always the most updated packages.
Basket Build Gapps – The recommended one when you don’t know what to download.
