By Tara Cantore

APK file packages are often distributed through a Web browser for use on Android-compatible devices. You'll need to download these files through your Android's browser to be able to access them on the device. You can do this through any browser compatible with your model of phone or tablet.

Step 1

Open your preferred browser from your Android's phone menu.

Step 2

Type the address of the site that has the APK file or files that you'd like to download.

Step 3

Tap or select the link to the APK file. The file will be stored in the "Downloads" menu item on your Android program list.
