    Default PC to tablet installing

    I see that to take an apk off a PC and put it on your Android device all you need is the apk app and a USB, right? But will there be any sort of complications or any special application needed to do so? For instance; installing a new ROM means you need Winrar or something like that. Is it the same for Apk's?

    Default Re: PC to tablet installing

    Copy apk to your device storage.
    Enable installation of application from unknown sources to do this go to settings - security - tick Unknown Sources
    Run the apk file by browsing through your device file manager
    Done

    Roms are very different as compared to apks. They require winrar/ winzip/7zip flashing tools like odin or a custom recovery installed on your device whereas apks just need to be transferred to the device and opened by file manager/ explorer at most they need is root privileges for selected applications
