What is an APK File?
The APK file is an Android package kit that is used by the Android operating system for the distribution and installation of mobile applications. Just as a .exe file is used to install the software in Windows systems, a similar APK file is used for Android. Applications downloaded from Google Play are automatically installed on your device, while APK files downloaded from other sources have to be manually installed.
