How to extract APK file for the app already installed through Google Play

No specific Bitcoin Bounty has been announced by author. Still, anyone could send Bitcoin Tips to those who provide a good answer.


  1. I have 1st phone that does not have access to Google Play, so I need to physically download APK files in order to install new apps on that phone
  2. I have another phone that DOES HAVE Google Play, and I have installed the app in question on that 2nd phone


How can I get APK file from the 2nd phone and move it to the 1st phone?

Thanks Josef. Could you please include links to Google Play for the apps that you mention? Also, if you are using Chrome browser, it is easy to make a sceenshot from Google Play, then paste id directly to Canvas in BX Image Upload screen (image pasting from clipboard to canvas works only in Chrome for now). Thanks!

Thanks Andrian, welcome to BitExperts! Do you know the exact path to the backup folder from the root? Does it depend on an Android version (Jeely Bean / Kit Kat / Lolipop / etc?) or vendor / model (Samsung / HTC / LG etc?) Thanks!


if the phone rooted, you can use the Lucky Patcher App to create a Apk file from installed apps on the phone! but if the phone not rooted , you can use Zapya App to send the installed apps on your phone via Bluetooth or via a WiFi network !! you can find Lucky Patcher here . and you can find Zapya by searching on Google play store.
