APK extractor (cellphone app)
« on: August 29, 2015, 10:22:51 AM »
If you are some one who has multiple Android phones or for any reason is prone to bricking your phones. APK extractors are a very good app to have. Bascially they allow you to take any app you have downloaded from the google store and turn it into a installation file, which you can store on your phone or on a flash drive or your pc.

If you have limited space on your phone and have certain apps you only use occasionally (like game apps) or you have a few different phones. This app will allow you to just download the original app once and distribute it between all the phones without returning to the app store. This will save time and over the air data usage. Of course some apps will prompt for an almost immediate update if it has been a while since you originally downloaded them, which you can ignore. Also some of the apps that you paid for will sometimes ask you to register them, if you are installing them on a completely new phone or one that has been reset. This is usually very quick and does not require an full update. 

Here is a link to a page of extractors at google play store.

Android application package
Android application package (APK) is the package file format used to distribute and install application software and middleware onto Google's Android operating system. APK files are analogous to other software packages such as MSI packages in Microsoft Windows
You must forgive them. So many people did not slay the bogey man living under their bed as a child. Thus they feel him everywhere, hence the need to always carry a gun. Living in fear of the bogey man is a heavy burden for people to carry. So sad.
