    Welcome to Android Central! Go to Settings/Security, and make sure "Unknown Sources" is checked.

    APK files don't necessarily work on all devices. The app might not be compatible, the file might be corrupt, or it might be malware. If you can find the app on Amazon Appstore or Google Play, I highly recommend you install it from there.

    Where are you getting the Amazon Appstore apk file? Is it from here? Amazon.com/amazonappstoreapp

    And you're unable to install the Appstore using the apk, or is it that none of the apps you buy from Amazon will install?

    Backing up a bit--what did you mean by this, that the option didn't give anything? Are you saying Unknown Sources is checked, and it still doesn't work?

    Also, I'm not familiar with "Google disk." What is that for?

    So is the check on or is the check off? Or does the same problem occur either way?

    By the way, it's called "Google Drive," just so you don't cause any confusion in the future.

    Sometimes, Google's built-in malware scanner can cause problems. I have had the experience where I tried to install an app from Amazon Appstore, and selected for Google to verify the app--this would then lead to an error. It's possible that you selected this option before, and made it the default, and now it's interfering with installation of apps from Amazon. Try going to Settings>Apps, tap Menu, then tap Reset App Preferences (it might be in a different location depending on the device). Then try installing again.

    The parsing error is discussed elsewhere in this forum along with a variety of solutions that worked for some. I had to do 3 factory resets and finally turned off two of the settings during the initial wizard that happens when you use the phone for the first time (options discussed in the thread I refer to). Then I had to turn off verify apps in settings then turn on allow installation from unknown sources. If I didn't do it in that order it wouldn't work. Some others have found that a factory reset is enough to fix the problem.

    Have you found the other thread that I refer to and have you followed all the recommendations in there? There is no solution that works for everyone. A factory reset did not work for me either and that is why I provided the additional steps that DID work for ME but you may have to do something slightly different.

    this issue is a know issue with Moto G.. apk install throws Parse error and has been discussed here before

    Google search the issue, xda might have solution for this. Also, KitKat might have fixed the issue already
