    Hello Android Central,

    I am unable to obtain internet in my residence other than the unlimited data on my phone plus the phone's 8 GB of hotspot data each month.

    Is it possible to download apps on my phone then transfer them to an Nvidia Shield?

    Thank you for your expertise!

    Technically you can extract the APK from an app on your phone and put it on an SD card and then install it on the SHIELD, yes.

    If you have ES File Explorer installed on both devices you can transfer with the "Sender" feature it has but I believe both devices have to be on the same network.

    es file explorer is no longer available on google play store. load apk from your phone to a usb drive first. then, download and install mi box apk installer on your shield and install all apks that you just copied.
