If you can get the PdDroidParty apk installed on the devices then it's 
possible to distribute the patch as a zip file to the devices quite 
easily. You can zip the patch folder and then rename the zip so it has a 
`.dpz` extension. If a user has PdDroidParty installed and they receive 
a .dpz file by email or click on a link to a .dpz file then it should 
automatically open in PdDroidParty.

This still means you have to install two things (the DroidParty apk and 
the .dpz file) but maybe it's easier than creating a custom apk and 
easier than copying the folder onto SD cards one by one.

More info about this can be found in the "Sharing your patches" section 
on the droidparty.net site.
