I have purchased a Samsung Galaxy Pro duos (GT-B5512) and I’m new to the Android world. I wanted to know, is it possible to download any app on PC and install the app to my phone later, even when the phone is not connected to the internet?
If yes, kindly tell me how.

    Yes, first you should download the setup files of the app (with file extension .apk) on your pc, then transfer it to your phone, open file manager and choose the app you want to install (You should check the option for installing apps from unknown sources under settings/applications/unknown sources).

      You can install apps into your tablet by copying the apk files into your tablet.

      1) Download the apk file for the app you wish to install from a site eg: -

      2) Copy the apk file into your tablet by connecting it with a USB cable.Make sure that you have installed correct drivers for your tablet into your PC.

      3) Browse the apk file using file manager that comes preinstalled in your tablet.

      4) Tap on it and then it'll ask you to enable installation from unknown third party sources (which you have to allow else you won't be able to install it).

      5) Tap on install button and then your app will be ready to use.

    its tough to do it with google play apps/

  • Roman Vávra

    Yes, it is... for me, its simple... Try to download .apk files of applications you want and then install them with install manager (HTCs have own desktop app / Windows), or download app for installing .apk files from the phone

  • Christopher Harlan

    Yes, though the problem can be finding the apps. Google the app you want with .apk after it and it will find it if its out there. Windows uses .exe. Android uses .apk
