      There's a variety of methods that can transfer an APK (software installer in the Android OS) from your phone to your PC. The easiest method is to use Titanium Backup combined with Dropbox, since the two combined don't need a cable.

      Once the two are configured, Titanium Backup will basically copy the APK files to your SD card and Dropbox will copy the backed up files to your computer, which includes the APK files.

      Configuration: Here's a quick photo gallery of how to enable Dropbox in Titanium Backup (the last two screen shots are accidental shots of Dropbox, don't look at it):

      Titanium Backup can be found here:

      Before download of file,does it asks for location to save that file?Does this occurs with other downloads too?

      If yes,you then you must change the extension .apk to download the apk file as it is or you can use download manager.
