I have a broadband connection on my PC but I don’t have  internet connection/mobile data plan on my android mobile phone/tablet, is it possible for me to download android apps from the Google Play directly to my PC and later transfer it to my mobile/tab and install? well, this question arises to most of android device users, you may have a 2G plan which is way slow to download huge games and apps or you may have a limited and expensive 3G data plan, so it is a good idea to install apps on your android device through your PC.

Here’s a ultra fast guide to download Android Apps to PC and then transfer it to your mobile

Step 1 : Get App ID from URL

Browse to the Android App on the Google Play, copy the app’s id from the URL

For example I am about to download Avast Anti-Theft app, below is the URL and the app id is highlighted in Green

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.avast.android.at_play
