Owning a Smartphone has almost become the norm with people lately and with that, having as well as using a wide range of applications comes as a no-brainer. When it comes to android phones, the latest offering from Google to download apps and use them is Google Play, which was initially known as the Android Market. Using the Google Play Store, users can now download different types of applications in the forms of games, screensavers, movies, music and much more. While some of them are free of cost, others require a small payment for usage. However, not every Smartphone comes with the android market app installed, which makes it quite cumbersome for the user to download and use any of the apps available. Here is where the Android market APK comes into play. Whenever such a problem arises, that’s when the user would have to download the .APK files.
Android market APK files function on similar lines as .EXE files. What these files do is, they give you the direct code to the application that you wish to download on your phone, and you can then go ahead and install it via your web browser. So, even if you can’t download apps directly, all you have to do is search for the Android market APK files of the desired app.
While you’re doing this, it is very important to download APK files from trusted sources only, or you run the chances of infecting your device with a virus, which is never an ideal situation. Most apps have .APK files and hence, it’s really easy to search and download them. There are also separate APK installers that help users install the files in a much easier way. These are readily available in certain developer forms.
The most popular way to download an Android Market APK file is as follows:
- Download the file onto your device or SD card.
- Find the suggestive APK file links, and click. The file should start running.
- Once this is done, the application will be successfully installed into your device, and you can use it like any other app.
With the help of Android market APK files, Google has managed to reach out to a wider audience base and allow for many more people to use its services. Also, now it allows app developers to post different versions of the same app to allow for the best version to be hosted on various android phones, thus increasing its connectivity.
