There are multiple reasons why you would want an APK downloaded on your computer. One of the most common is that you don’t have access to an Android device, but want to check out Android apps. These are the 3 best APK file downloaders for your computer so you don’t have to surf around the Internet to find what you need.
I’ll have to be completely honest with you here, I would rather prefer to use third-party stores than any dedicated software. This is simply because most of these apps are obsolete by now. Only the first app on the list is easy to use and set up the other 2 are quite a bit tricky for new users.
And in all honesty, I would rather simply download an APK from a somewhat reliable source and use it on my PC. So, if you are here only because you want to play Android video games on your PC, I would recommend checking out the best Google Play Store alternatives as well.
Note: The APK file downloaders were tested on a Core i7 HP Omen laptop. You need to download them from their respective links and you may need to do a slight installation. Only the first app is plug-and-play the rest of them require an intricate set up which may take anything from 2 to 10 minutes, depending on your familiarity with Android SDK.
I think Ko Player is one of the best APK file downloaders for your computer. The interface is designed really well and you don’t need anything extra to make it work on any PC. I’ve had no trouble downloading different games and apps on this player and actually playing them on it as well. This is what makes this APK file downloader so unique.
Only you have access to all the games on the Google Play Store but you can also play them if you want right on this app. To download an APK, simply search for the game or app you want, tap on it and that’s it.
If you want to move the APK file to your Android smartphone, this can also be accomplished by attaching your smartphone to the PC and allowing the app to do so. All in all, this is a complete package and I highly recommend that you check it out before moving on to other apps on this list.
