We can say that the one of the most searched niches in the Google was APK. There’s so many websites now providing APK download, just like EXE we’ve been know a decade years back then.
So what’s APK? Android Package Kit (APK) is the package file format used by the Android operating system for distribution and installation of mobile apps and middleware.

So now we know it was extension file of android application, but why download it externally when we can download it from Google Playstore instead?

Well, there’s reasons why some people download it externally, like they have problem with the Google Playstore apps, they want to downgrade an apps, nor download paid apps for free (Oops! Don’t do this! At least not often haha)

So, there’s some point you should know before downloading an APK externally, we will break it down.

  • Check the APK Version

This is important! Always check the APK version you would like to download, make sure it’s the latest version, downloading an old version will sometime score you with abnormal function nor stop from working normally and the apps ask you to download the latest version.

Don’t waste your time, always check the latest version! It’s worth it!

  • Check the Android Compability

Another things you should check is Android compability. If you would like to download an APK with the Android 4.4+ compability, at least you need to have Android 4.4 KitKat device or newer version.
You can’t run Android 4.4+ apps on Android 2.3 device, it’s just dumb! Seriously haha

  • Does It Contain OBB?

Always check what things you should download in order to play normally. Some bigger apps need another file called OBB data to run, so you need to download both APK and the OBB file.

The OBB file are then placed to Android/OBB.

  • Check APK Name And The Developers

It’s really basic but will make you upset if you make a mistake. Sometimes there are apps that have a similiar name, to make sure you don’t make a mistake, always check the APK names and the developers. Eg: Bully Anniversary by Rockstar Games.

So that’s all you need to know before downloading an APK, I hope this article usefull even in small impact hehe
