If you have an Android device in your hand and reading this tutorial then you must be aware of the term APK. It stands for ANDROID PACKAGE KIT.
It’s like a .exe file in WINDOWS. If you want to install any application then you must need to download this from any reliable source.
You can also install the Android application from the Play Store but if the application is not available in your country or the Play Store bans the application then you must need the APK file for installing it into your device.
Suppose, you have an application on your device and you want to share this application with your friends or family.
Now, what will you do if the Play Store bans this application and your relative not be able to download the application from the Play Store?
Now, you have two options either, you can recommend a source where they can download the APK file or you can share it from your own device.
Let’s discuss both of these cases.
1. Recommend a source:
If you have a website or application that can help them to download the APK then you can recommend them but wait, if the source is not reliable it may contain any virus or hacking code that can hack your friend’s or relative’s device.
You can’t trust that source. Any third-party website or application for downloading an APK file is not worth it.
If still, you still need to download the APK then you can use the scanner to scan the APK before sharing it.
It can be the best way but not trustworthy.
2. Share any APK with someone else:
Now, it’s another great way to share the APK. You can use various third-party applications or websites in order to share your application with someone else.
But wait, you can share the application with these third-party applications only if the RECEIVER is near you. In case, if it’s far away then you don’t have any choice but to share your application with that person.
Well, there is a way with the help of which you can do that. But for that, you need to use a converter that can help you to convert your application into an APK file.
Make sure to stay with me and I’ll share with you a secret trick that can help you to convert your Android application into an APK. Make sure to follow the steps mentioned below.
