Android APK Installer Finalized, Released for all Devices

Installing APK files on Android is easy, and most users are familiar with the process. For most users, it’s all done through the Google Play Store. However, users sometimes have to side load APKs manually. This is usually accomplished using a file manager, finding the APK, and installing it. There’s an easier way for those who like using their computers.

XDA Senior Member quangnhut123 released the final version of the APK Installer tool. It’s for Windows only, but the premise is very simple. You plug in your device, open up the application, and then drag and drop APK files into the designated area. The apps auto-install and that’s that. You’ll just have to make sure USB debugging and installing from unknown sources are both turned on. There are a couple other features as well, including:

**There are 2 options : Internal Memory and Reinstall.
+ Internal memory : Install apk file into internal memory (phone memory not ex-sdcard). By default this tool will install into ex-sdcard.
+ Reinstall : Reinstall program that corrupted .

So there are options where the APK gets installed and some troubleshooting in case something goes wrong. If you install many APKs and want a tool to help make it quicker, this is definitely something to check out.

For more info, check out the original thread.

PhotoMath: A Math Beginner’s Dream App

To me, applications like this one are really important for school students. I bought my first significant Android the same year I began my Physics degree at my university, and immediately I realised how tremendously helpful it was. From accurate graphing applications to TI emulators (don't judge me, the real thing costs crazy amounts here!), passing through giants like Wolfram and MATLAB Mobile, there were a lot of tools for one to excel with. In fact, I'd say that without Android I wouldn't have chosen...

Which App for iPhone Do You Wish Was on Android?

Only a few years ago, it was normal for a major app release to be available for iOS but come months later to Android. That seems to no longer be the case, as Android has advanced tremendously with Google putting a huge effort into its Play Store and ecosystem. However, while the majority of major app releases are now made available for both platforms at the same time, there are a few iOS exclusives that some of us wish were on our favorite mobile OS (Hyperlapse comes to mind). Let us know which apps for the iPhone you wish were on Android.
