Google Play Store, formerly known as Android Market is a platform for applications for the Android Operating System. In Google Play Store you can find Android Applications, Music, Books, Magazines, Television Programs and Movies. You can even purchase hardware such as Chromebooks, Google Nexus Mobile Phones and other accessories from Play Store.
The Applications found on Google Play Store are either free of cost or charged. Some are targeted to users of specific mobile devices and some are only available for specific regions. The Android Application are packaged into APK. Usually they can be installed from the Play Store App which is pre-installed on almost all android devices. Play Store doesn’t allow users to download the APK files. Rather it installs the application on the device with users permission.
Today I will show you how you can download the APK files on your computer. After downloading you can easily transfer it to your mobile using a USB Data Cable or by other means. Once the APK file is transferred to your mobile, you can save it and install it whenever you want without going to play store.
Now you might be thinking why you may need the APK installer file when you can easily install it from Play Store. There are various reasons behind this :
1. Sometimes you may not have an internet connection or wifi to visit play store. And if you have the APK installer file you can install it whenever you want without the need of internet on your mobile.
2. As I mentioned that Applications found on Play Store are sometimes targeted to users of some specified region or country. So, If you are not from the targeted region then that application will not be available for you on Play Store.
3. You saw an application on Play Store and want to install it on other device. Because Some Android Devices like Amazon Kindle Tablet do not have Play Store installed.
