    I have a rooted Verizon GS3. For apps that normally require me to pay in order to install them from the Google Play, would I be able to install them on my phone if I find the app's apk files elsewhere online and manually flash it via CWM instead of paying for them?

    This will likely be locked

    Anyway, I don't think you will find much success because I believe you would still need the license

    If you bought them from Google Play why don't you just reload them from Google Play?

    That's ILLEGAL!!! Why would you do that???? Support the people who are supplying us with apps.

    The only legitimate way I can think of off the top of my head is if you bought games from a Humble Bundle or some such.

    Those are just apks you download and sideload directly onto the device.

    However, those apks are not set up to look for a google license check. They are just completely stand alone apps.

    In any case, if you "bought" the app from the google play store, there's no compelling reason not to just re-install it from the play store.
