Install application only on notification tab

I show a notification to the user once an application has been downloaded.

I also have a installApk method which installs the downloaded application but in the code piece (completeNotification) the application gets automatically installed. I need it to only install once the user tabs the notification.

Did I overlooked something?

Thank you for your help.

The completeNotification method:

public void completeNotification() {
Intent install = installApk(urlPath, context, mNotificationManager,
NOTIFYCATIONID);
PendingIntent pending = PendingIntent.getActivity(context, 0, install, 0);

mBuilder = new NotificationCompat.Builder(context)
.setContentTitle(appName)
.setContentText("ready to install.");
mBuilder.setContentIntent(pending);
mBuilder.setSmallIcon(R.drawable.placeholder);
mBuilder.setDefaults(Notification.DEFAULT_SOUND);
mBuilder.setAutoCancel(true);
mNotificationManager =
(NotificationManager) context.getSystemService(Context.NOTIFICATION_SERVICE);
mNotificationManager.notify(1, mBuilder.build());
}


The installApk method:

public static Intent installApk(String urlPath, Context context,
NotificationManager mNotificationManager, int NOTIFYCATIONID) {
Intent apkIntent = new Intent();
apkIntent.addFlags(Intent.FLAG_ACTIVITY_NEW_TASK);
apkIntent.setAction(android.content.Intent.ACTION_VIEW);
File apkFile = new File(urlPath);
Uri uri = Uri.fromFile(apkFile);
apkIntent
.setDataAndType(uri, "application/vnd.android.package-archive");
context.startActivity(apkIntent);
mNotificationManager.cancel(NOTIFYCATIONID);
return apkIntent;
};

Answer

remove this line:

context.startActivity(apkIntent);
