What is an APK file?
APK file is an app made for Android, Google’s mobile operating system. Some applications are pre-installed on Android devices, other apps can be downloaded from Google Play. Downloaded applications from Google Play are automatically installed on your device, downloaded from other sources, which must be manually installed.
Generally, users never see the file in the APC because Android, Google Play, or other application delivers application installation in the background to the distribution platform. However, there are many websites that offer direct downloads to APK files for Android users who want to install apps directly. In this case, you have to be careful that you are the source of the APK file, because malware can be distributed to APK files, just for cases like Windows and .EXE files
