How to install Android App on PC

Well, these days, there are many awesome Android apps, but not every one use Android operating system. So the question is: how to download it without buying Android device!
The solution is very simple. You just get an apk file to your PC, and copy it to your phone and run! Or you can play it on your PC ( make sure your PC has installed Android Emulator in advance).

Outdated advice. Why?

In reply to: How to install Android App on PC

The problem of infected APKs means that with rare exceptions you want to stay inside the Apple and Google app stores.

Don't give the bad people a chance to ruin your day, machine or phone.
