Android applications are commonly installed from Google Play Store. However, this may bring about some issues because it is required to download the apk directly to the phone. It can also happen that there is not enough free storage capacity on the phone at that time. In addition, some applications use separate databases that are not included in the package available at Google Play. In those cases, the application must download the database on its own, which takes a lot of time and storage space.
Fortunately, there is apkpure.com, an online repository, from which you can download both the applications and their related databases to your computer’s hard disk or your device’s memory card. This is when a tool like Pure Apk Install comes in handy because it helps you install the applications you store on your computer directly to your Android device. This procedure can save you a lot of time and effort because you do not need to download the same data repeatedly.
For Pure Apk Install to work, you need to connect your Android device to your computer via USB. The tool lets you decide where you want to install the apk to: internal or external storage. Moreover, by means of an online service, it can verify the authenticity of the application to minimize the malware threat. Likewise, it can show you the supported Android versions.
Logically, there is always the risk of needing to activate USB debugging on the device, which may cause security issues that compromise data integrity and privacy. Therefore, you must be aware of this and turn USB debugging off right after installing new apks.
All in all, Pure APK Install is a useful tool. Unfortunately, it cannot help you find and download applications, as it is limited to installing them. Finally, it is my duty to tell you that there are some more versatile similar tools out there.
