1. About APK

What is an APK?

APK is an acronym for “Android application package”, which is an application installer used on the Android operating system. APK is a ZIP-based archive, based on the JAR format and has a .apk extension.

Why need APK?

  • Install apps that are blocked or restricted in certain countries on Google Play.
  • No Play Store app on your phone / Can’t open Play Store app
  • Installing apps through APK also allows you to install paid apps, which infringe copyright.

What is Obb?

Obb is an additional data file for the app. Some need them to work, while some don’t. If you see the Obb download link in posts on APKMod.cc, then you need to download them.

What is APKs?

With the release of Android App Bundles, this new format of Google Play will make it impossible for us to share APK anymore. Replace it with APKs.

APKs cannot be installed in the normal way. To install APKs, you need to use APKMOD SAI (Refer to the installation instructions below).
