APK is the file on which an Android App is based or you can say the Raw File of every Android app that you find on Google Play Store comes from an APK first or whenever you download an App from Play Store so you Install an APK directly into your Device through a trusted source. But sometimes you want to share an app with someone and not sending the link or the person’s internet isn’t available so you do the procedure offline by sharing APK of that app installed on your device.
Sometimes you also hear of MOD APKs, well that is tickled version where the backend is adjusted to provide premium features for free to the user. That’s a different topic but as for developers or if you want to mod an App as well you need to know how to extract APK of Installed App, and that’s the main topic of today’s discussion. There are several ways to do so…
How to Create APK of Installed App on Android to share with Friends – Easiest Method
To Create APK of Existing App you need to follow the steps mentioned below so just follow them and you are good to go, make sure that you have the app of which you wanna extract APK off, otherwise you might have to download external APK from the Internet which is also another stuff.
Steps to Extract APK of an APP on your Phone-
Through Android Tools
- Select an App to get APK
- Download APK Extractor from Google Play Store (best app to extract APK of android apps)

Download from Online Sources
Another way is finding things online and for that, there are a lot of different sites available like APKMirror, UpDown, APKPure, Aptoide, F-Droid, etc. which can come useful in most case. One big advantage of downloading or finding APKs is that you even can get premium version pre-made for your devices like we share with you MOD APKs so just like that from these sides you can find them or just Google it in any case.
We personally use this method but its a quite hectic sometimes to find latest, working and non-virus files without getting exploited because Online frauds, scams, viruses are common and for these types of files they are pushed more frequently taking advantage of req users.
What’s the Use of APK
If you are a developer then you must know it or if you are just a beginner and wants to do an experiment in existing files of an App so for that APK comes necessary, if you know whats a MOD APK so those are modified files modded by Developers which are unlocked by Developers with legal permission for distribution within the community who aren’t able to purchase premium versions.
Even if you want to unlock features without paying using Luckypatcher so in that as well it uses APK of the App and unlocks specified packages or sets which are locked by developers. And this is a great way to learn hacking (only with permissions) as touching or hacking APKs without permission can drag you into trouble so try to take permissions first.
APK of an App is base through which it evolves with main codes that help to build a full structure and every time you get an update, developers make changes and push an update within existing files. Sounds fun right? You can learn it in Android Development if your peace with it.
