Hi Lee,

Downloading and using APKs to your computer may be done but not from Google Play (Android Market previously) because Google play gives you the option of downloading the app directly from your phone or sending it to your phone and both of them involves using your existing phone speed. You have two options to try:

1- Wireless: You can connect to a wireless network with higher speed or you can even share your computer internet connection wirelessly throw a program named connectify which you can download here: . the lite version can give you all the features that you need for personal use.

2- PandaApp: throw you can get a lot of apps for your android device which you can either send to your device using Bluetooth or using USB and then you have to go to settings in your phone –> Applications –> Check Allow installation from unknown sources. then browse to where you placed the APK then click it to start the installation.

How do I download and install .apk files?


If your Android phone is too slow to download games and apps, one alternative method you can do to install stuffs on your phone is to download them using your computer. When you do this, you’ll be downloading APK files. Android games and applications are in the form of APK files (.apk).

This is the actual file format that gets downloaded from Google Play and installed on your phone. Since APK files are big, most of the time, downloading them on your phone is a bit hard at times especially when you have a slow connection. But downloading them on your computer would be a lot faster.

To download APK files, you just need to find an APK download site that has good reputation such as To find apps and games that might interest you, go to Download Free Android Games on I’ve been downloading from this site many times and I had not found a single problem. Just select your phone on the page to get started.

When you download, make sure you know what Android version is running on your phone to make sure the file you are downloading is compatible with your device. Once you download an APK file whether a regular app or a game, transfer it to your phone using the USB cable.

If your phone’s internal storage is not detectable by the computer, install your phone’s PC software or PC suite to allow you to transfer files between your computer and your phone. After copying the APK file to your phone’s internal storage, open that APK file on your phone and it should install normally. Then just do the same for other APK files you want to install.
