How to Download APK Files (Android Apps) from Google Play
Install an app from Google Play and, while the installer takes the form of an APK files, you’re never given the opportunity to download the file directly. Using the APK Downloader extension for Chrome, you can download any APK you need so you have it as a backup.
This does not mean that you can wade into the store and start downloading all of the premium apps and games you’ve always had your eye on. This is not a tool for piracy, but it will enable you to download the APK for any free apps.
Note: Using APK Downloader is against Google’s Terms of Service as it involves accessing Google Play using means ‘other than through the interface that is provided by Google’.
You can download a copy of the extension by paying a visit to Code Kiem. You will need to right click the link to the latest version of the extension and select Save Target As.
