1. About APK

What is an APK?

APK is an acronym for “Android application package”, which is an application installer used on the Android operating system. APK is a ZIP-based archive, based on the JAR format and has a .apk extension.

Why need APK?

  • From time to time, you want to experience new games and apps that are not yet available on Google Play.
  • Install apps that are blocked or restricted in certain countries on Google Play.
  • No Play Store app on your phone / Can’t open Play Store app
  • Installing apps through APK also allows you to install paid apps, which infringe copyright.

What is OBB?

Obb is an additional data file for the app. Some need them to work, while some don’t. If you see the Obb download link in posts on APKMody, then you need to download them.

What is APKs?

With the release of Android App Bundles, this new format of Google Play will make it impossible for us to share APK anymore. Replace it with APKs.

Essentially, APKs are collections of multiple APK files within that file.

APKs cannot be installed in the normal way. To install APKs, you need to use XAPKS Installer.

What is XAPK?

XAPK is an APK and OBB container format.
