Installing APK Files Gets Simplified with ‘installAPK’ and ‘APK2EXE’
A majority of Android users are content to use the market as their means of getting apps. Â It’s easy to click on the shopping bag and find the games and utilities that everyone is talking about. Â What happens when you want Wi-Fi tethering or other apps that don’t end up in the Android Market? Â Sure, you can install the .APK files from outside sources, but’s not the easiest process in the world. Â We now have a pair of viable solutions.
We got tipped yesterday from @paulatmodaco regarding his new app called ‘installAPK‘ which really streamlines the whole process. Â After installing the program on your computer, users can double click APK files to install them on your USB attached Android handsets. Â It’s that easy! Â Of course, the app is in beta, so you may encounter an occasional glitch.
Today, Paul makes it possible for the app developer to distribute apps in executable (.EXE) format. Â It takes a tad bit more work to do this, but the ends are justified by the means. Â Swing by the Modaco Forums and check out APK2EXE!
