    So i just learned how to set up an adb and managed to pull the apk installed on one of my devices, from this app https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...patos&hl=en_US
    however when i try to install this apk on a different device (Lenovo tab M7, android 9)
    it doesnt install and the "app did not install" window shows up.
    playstore protect was disabled.

    heres a link to the apk file

    Welcome to Android Central! I moved this from the Android Apps forum to the General Help forum since the former is intended for developers to promote their apps. I also edited out your Google Drive link -- we discourage posting links to personal Drive files, since there's no way for us to vet those files for potential malware.

    It's possible the app just isn't compatible with the tablet. Apps aren't always universally compatible -- there can be issues with hardware or firmware.

    Welcome to the forums. That looks like a very interesting app and I would like to install it myself, actually. It's very local (Chile/Antofagasta) and it probably needs some extra development.

    I'd recommend you to get in touch with the creators, Fundación Minera Escondida. I think they will be very happy to help you with those problems.

    i thought about contacting the devs, but i wanted to solve it on my own and i did, partly. it turns out that the devices were not compatible with the majority of the apps from the same dev(hardware requirements). the task was to gather 11 apps from 1 device and put them together in 1 file, then transfer it to multiple other devices. so after searching for solutions and trying for several days, i found 6 apps on a apk site and tried to install them through pc apkinstaller

    Can you help me install this specific apk on my device?-apkinstaller_3eihd78dei.png

    at this point i had no idea app bundles existed. finally, i ended up finding out that the apps were split when i execd the adb shell pm path command on the device that had the apps already installed, yes i also had to learn how to setup an adb, and that i needed an app that put the files together and install them, only 2 apps were compatible.
