How did you manage that? Did you sideload the app?
This is an actually outstanding news!
As new Huawei-Devices are not part of the SafetyNet (Google Play-Services, “securing” the apps), this would mean LineageOS should be able to use the same installation-routine you have used!
I would, if you had to sideload the app, appreciate if would actually support AppGallery “native”; Huawei produces some realy neat smartphones, but almost ALL competitors are NOT supporting Huawei-Store due to “no SafetyNet”… now could make some ground supporting Huawei… (also this’d make competitors consider their position)
F-Droid has an app called Aurora Store. It links directly to Google Play and mimics that (although I did manage to get an APKPure version running too)
It doesn’t require Google Mobile Services, but obviously some of the buttons (specifically add to Google Pay) isn’t going to work; tried working around that but no dice.
Revolut is probably one of the better apps for this in all honesty, everything in it’s entirety seems to work!
I’ve requested it on the Huawei AppGallery through their “wishlist”. I think Huawei contacts developers manually to tempt them over, hopefully Revolut will move on over to the platform! In 1-2 years I want to distance myself entirely from any other app store (and hardware manufacturers), but obviously at present I’m unable to do so
Wow, thanks, Aurora Store went completly under my radar… Will give it a try
(want to upgrade my old Nexus 5X with PixelExperience, checks if the apps run with GPlay first, THEN “it’s open” (still hope they’ll do an official LineageOS17.1 for the 5x (they did it for the Nexus 6 dammit))…
Used the wishlist, too - but many of the apps have companys that say “we’ll not go there”… (ôO)
Aurora Store/Yalp Store on my phone doesn’t display Revolut in search results.
And I think downloading it from Evozi or any web mirror isn’t safe (Revolut doesn’t publish any SHA-1 checksum of the app on the website —which would be a great security practice—).
At least if their app was securely signed… But no!
$ apksigner verify com.revolut.revolut_603201169_apps.evozi.com.apk

So, how to download it without Google?
One thing is sure, if I ever become client of Revolut one day, given they care so much about compatibility, web-app, and security:
1- Won’t be my main bank account
2- Small amounts of money
I can’t create new topics, so i will ask here.
I just now downloaded mobile application, and received verification code, but when i open application again i have only window to send this code again, i can do nothing else. What can i do?
@ArsenG is there any chance you could refer this thread to someone on the engineering team? Would be great to see Revolut launch Huawei Pay in the UK, onto the Huawei AppGallery and for a watch app etc
If there’s any extra appreciation from the team to know the following: you’d be the only UK bank on the store + the only bank in Europe that can use the payments features (should you implement them as a launch partner)
