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.
