3)As soon as you add it you will be taken to a new window where the options of Apk Downloader will be there it will ask for email id, password and GSF id key (Google Service Framework)

How to Get that GSF id key (Google Service Framework) (Important to Download Android Apps) :-

4)Now just on your android device open dialer pad and dial *#*#8255#*#* as you can see in the Image below then a New Screen will open up i.e GTalk Service Monitor Screen will open up just scroll a bit down and just note down your device GSF id key i.e it will be your Device id as you can see in the Image below.

Android Device Id Number

Note :- If you are not able to get the GSF id key by dailing *#*#8255#*#* then you can find it manually by using this app :- Android Device ID.

5)After noting down that key just enter that key on your Apk Downloader Option and Note use the same Gmail id and Password which you use on your android phone and then after filling the information just click on Login and you will be Logged in now you can close the window (Don’t Logout From Apk Downloader).

Apk Downloader Options

6)Now just Go to Google Playstore (Make sure you are logged in to your Google Playstore with the same account which you used earlier to log in to Apk downloader above) and then just open any app or game which you would like to download for instance I wanna download Angry Birds just open it up on Playstore (Make sure the app is free as you can’t download paid apps or games) then on the top you will see a new Icon in the URL bar as you can see in the Image below just click on it and it will ask you where you wanna save the Game Apk file just save and done ! Enjoy…

Tip :- If you cannot see the icon then just see to it you have the latest version of Google Chrome on your Pc.The whole method works 100% as it is tested by me !

Apk Download

Note :- Make sure when you try to Download an App or Game from Playstore it shows Install as you can see in the Image above instead of Installed as if you have already Installed the App or Game and then click on that Icon from the Top then it takes you to a new screen and nothing happens.Many people complained below about this problem in the comments below :- So if you see Installed button instead of Install then In order to download just Login to your Playstore with any other Gmail account and then you will be able to download ! Enjoy… :)

So now you can download any Android Free Apps or Games from Google Playstore to your Pc with just one click as I said earlier. Thanks to the person who made this awesome Google Chrome Extension to Download Awesome Android Apps and Games. So now what are you waiting for Download Android Apps to Pc  easily :)

  10. shatrughna says

    It seems that i can’t download the app using any other downloaders (like IDM) .The download is getting started in chrome , which is an another big deal for downloading data. I tried pasting the URL of the download in the IDM download pannel, but it stopped saying that

    “The server replies that you don’t have permission to download the file”

    HTTP/1.1 403 Forbidden

    Can I download the app using IDM?I will be waiting for your reply….

    • says

      I think that you can’t download the app using IDM as Playstore requires Google Account and GSF id so follow the steps mentioned above in the post as its the best and the easiest way to download apps and games with just one click and BTW Thanks for dropping by and Keep Visiting :)

  19. Aman says

    I have done all the steps but when i click the icon in address bar it does nothing. I have tried login with the same account & also different account. Please help.

    • says

      Aman just make sure you have latest version of Google Chrome and also make sure that you have entered your Google GSF ID properly. I would recommend repeating the full procedure once again it will work but before repeating make sure to have latest version of Google Chrome installed and let me know if you have any other problem and BTW Thanks for dropping by, Keep Visiting :)

      • Aman says

        Its not working Sanket.. When i install the application & press add…it does not automatically take me to new window…as instructed by you above.. rather i have to go to options for entering all the data.. that green symbol in address bar is not working for me…

        • says

          If you can then just uninstall Google Chrome and Install it again and follow all the steps mentioned above again or you can also do one thing just go to :- and there just copy and paste the game or app link which you want to download and click on Generate Download Link and then the app / game will be downloaded in one click :)

          • Aman says

  20. Rajib Mridha Bapy says

    I got this website from my buddy who shared with me regarding this web page and now this time
    I am browsing this site and reading very informative posts
    at this time.

  21. Madhukar says

    Dear Mr. Rathod,

    First of all I appriciate your efforts in solving the same issues with all the people individually.
    I have still not used the above method yet for downloading apps, but I having a question for you. While searching the net, I come to know from few websites that, using your android phone device id for downloading apps from google store may block your android phone by google/android. Google is working on it and in future it will block such android device. Please share your views and guide me in this regard. Is the method mentioned above is safe.

    My Second question is that if we download the apps directly on our android phone, can we take backup of that apps with the extn .apk on phone or sd card.

    And at last, is there is any application or website, for android phone is available which only download apps but install it on demand.

    I am also crazy for new technology.


    • says

      As per evozi the creator of this apk downloader this method is 100% safe and you don’t need to follow now the full steps as evozi has updated the website and now no need to enter your id and password as you can just go to :- and there you have to just copy and past the url of the app or game which you wanna download and hit Generate download link button that’s it the download link will come.So this new updated method of evozi is awesome and I will also update my post with the new method ASAP… and now let me answer your 2nd question that you want to backup your apps so let me tell you that it doesn’t matter that the app is directly installed on your phone or you put a .apk file and install, the files are stored on your device and there are lots of applications available in the Play store by which you can backup your apps.Now let me answer your 3rd and last question there is a site called mobogenie so you can download the apps and games from there but I think not all Play store apps are available there.Hope this solves your queries and BTW Thanks for dropping by and Keep Visiting bro :)

    • says

      Thanks bro and some things which are not officially available need to be done in irritating way but you don’t need to repeat the full process again and again as once set you can download your apps and games with just one click and BTW Thanks for dropping by and Keep Visiting bro :)

    • says

      Note that you can’t download paid apps so make sure the app which you are trying to download is free and while downloading make sure you are logged in to your Playstore on your PC then it won’t show any errors.

  22. Femi says

    I followed everything properly but i can’t download.

    Once i got to the app to be downloaded, i click on the icon but nothing happens. I mean nothing, it doesn’t respond to the click.

    Thanks for your help

  23. Kaleswaran says

    Amazing! Its really working. I tried so many to download. But I failed in all those things. Finally I got your site. Now I’m downloading my apps without any trouble. Thank you so much.

  24. Vinay says

    Hi Sanket,

    After you download the app to your PC, what next? copy the same file to android device and install? can you give details on how n where to copy and install.


    • says

      Yes after downloading you have to just copy that file to your mobile to install it and you can put the file anywhere you want, but I would recommend creating a new folder called games where you can put all your android games and BTW Thanks for dropping by Vinay and Keep Visiting bro :)

    • says

      Sorry Sandip I checked the Google Chrome version and its up to date and I also have the same version of Google Chrome actually I thought the new version is 31.0.1636.2 but its still not released :).Now let me come to the point did you followed all the steps which I have mentioned in the post and did you tried what I told you to do i.e login with different Playstore account and if it still does not work then just try re doing the full process of Installation from start and make sure you follow all the steps properly.Hope this will help you out as it is working for me so it will also work for you too :)

  37. PJS911 says

    Okay, okay. So I think I got the whole idea wrong. Do the free apps and games available for download only in your PC and will not be directly downloaded on your android device?

      You can’t download android apps and games from Google Play store to PC but with this method you will be able to download free android apps and games from Google Play store to PC :)

    • says

      Try downloading temple run are you able to download it ? If not then make sure you are having latest version of Google chrome and just try logging in to play store with different account rather than the one which you used for apk downloader and then try downloading I think then you will be able to download any free app or game.Reply back if you are able to download it :)

  41. Owaise says

    Everything went correct bt when I clicked @ the icon a new tab opens n shows only downloading but doesn’t download? What to do pls help!

    • says

      Just make sure the app which you open says Install not Installed if it says Install then just login to play store using other gmail account.If you would not be logged in play store then you won’t be able to download the app.Try it and comment back if it worked for you :)
