Installing apps on your Android device

Once an APK file is downloaded to your desktop PC, it needs to be transferred over to your device for installation. You have three choices for doing so, each method having it's own merrits:

  • Via USB cable, using the ADB tool
  • Via WLAN by scanning a QR code
  • Via SDCARD

Using the ADB (Android Debug Bridge) Tool offers the most comfort and should be the method of choice since it also offers other benefits.
