Apk Downloader Extension

Apk Downloader Extension


This app lets you download apps from the play market without google play services or android market installed. This can be handy if you don't have google play services installed, or if you want to download an app that is not available on your device or in your country. It adds a button to the share menu in your browser when you are on an app page on the play store (see pictures).

This app is completely open source so you can scrutinise the code and build it yourself if you are worried about giving it permissions or entering your password.

Mildly useful. Only 1 in 10 apps will actually be possible to get, while the rest will return a error 400. It's nice when you do get that 1 app, but otherwise it's just annoying.

Update: Says "Api exception: App not found" This happens no matter what I try to download, even Bad Piggies HD, which before was the one thing that worked. Old version of review: I got this to get Google Now on my ICS phone without having to get a new phone. Thinking it might be an issue with first party apps, I tried another one, this time from Motorola, who made my phone. (It was Active Display, which I also didn't want to have to get a Moto X for.) That confirmed it. But just to make sure, I downloaded a third party restricted app and it worked.
