APK, or Android Application Package, is the file format used to distribute and install application software and middleware onto the Google Android operating system and certain other operating systems, such as Blackberry 9900 Devices with the OS version 7.1.0 or higher.. An APK file contains all the necessary files for a single Android program. APK files are saved in a compressed ZIP format and can be opened with any decompression tool. APK files are essentially a type of archive file, where the format of the packages are based on the JAR file format, with .apk as the filename extension. To make an APK file the software for Android is initially compiled, and then all of its parts are packaged into one file. An APK file contains all of that program’s code (such as .dex files), resources, assets, certificates, and manifest file.
When you install applications from Google Play (formerly known as Android Market) everything is automated and you don’t get to know where the files are being downloaded, what is the extension of the file and how the installation is being performed. So as long as you are using Google Play alone to install apps on your Android, you don’t have to worry about a thing. But there may be instances when you want to install an application manually, could be a beta application from developer’s website or maybe your friend transferred it to you over Bluetooth.
There are many sources of APK files across the web, but be sure to choose a site which you trust. Some APK files may contain malicious software (malware) which could compromise your phones security, so it is best to be cautious before downloading or installing any app from outside of the Play Store (and even in the Play Store you’re not completely safe!). Generally speaking, APK files found on sites like XDA should be safer to download than from elsewhere, but read some reviews and user comments before downloading or installing an APK.
When you want to install an APK manually, just open the APK installer app and navigate to the folder where you have your APK files saved. Now, simply click on the application to bring on the installation screen. Click the install button to successfully install the application.—————————————————————————————————–
