APK Downloader Retrieves an App APK with its Google Play Link

Let’s assume you are unlucky, and frequently end up with Google Play saying “Sorry, this app is not compatible with your device”. The usual way is either to patiently wait for a new firmware, or actually go through Android configuration files to change the behavior by, for instance, emulation a “Samsung Galaxy S4”. It’s also possible you somehow ended up with a device without Google Play. There’s now another solution thanks to APK Downloader.

APK_DownloaderThe way it works is that you just go to APK Downloader website, look for the app in Google Play website in your PC or device, copy the URL to APK Downloader website, and click on “Generate Download Click”. After a few seconds, or minutes depending on the APK size you’ll be able to download the APK. I used Antutu for testing as shown in the screenshot above. There’s a total limit of 250 new cached APK per day, so they’ve also come up with “Chrome APK Downloader Extension” so that you can download APKs using your own account via Google Chrome browser.

    Maybe, they’ve hit their daily limit. Try again later, or use the Chrome Extension.

    OpenDNS has flagged apps.evozi.com as a phishing threat, so racoon is timely.
    Just tried the java version, works a treat. Thanks.

    I used APK downloader this morning and it would always fail on the web interface.
    So I installed the Firefox add-on instead (also available for Chrome), and linked it to my phone device ID, and it works very well.
