There are 2 methods for (download apk from google play to computer)

Do you know about Online APK Downloader?with online apk downloader you can download every free apps on google play store on your coputer.
For all of us using an Android device , we already know that the Google play store limits the download of android apps and games only via an android phone or other android devices . Even if Android supports sideloading of apps and games , Google has always restricted the direct downloads of apps from the play store as apk files .
Google is doing the best to protect our android devices and the reason behind android apps not being available to download as apk files , is to prevent the spreading of virus and malwares by sideloading of apps from the outside of the play store .
Although downloading apps on an android phone is very easy , but if your data connection is slow , you won`t be left with any option apart from waiting for the crawling downloads to complete until you can use your favorite apps or games . Fortunately there is a workaround which will allow you to download Android apps and games as apk files from the Google play store .
android apps are packaged as APK files. You can use any File Manager app to copy these files from the computer to your Android device and then touch the .apk file to install, or sideload, the corresponding app on your device.

Hi, @Sangeet007 Intriguing thread you have here!
I'm interested in this primarily so that my phone does not automatically update so many default Samsung S4 system apps, and other user apps on my 'almost' new phone's recovery nandroid backup image. This restores my phone almost to it's original state, particularly where it is not associated with my existing Google account. My goal in using your guide, is to pick and choose among my Playstore apps, along with my purchased apps, without my phone having an associated account that updates so may apps on my phone. As regards the PlayStore, it looks like the respective user's device ID and email may be quarantined within your
Device_ID 1.1_[www.apkleecher.com].apk, without actually associating the phone to an existing Google account. Does it work this way?

Holding off on this until I get more XDA member's opinions. Plus I'm unsure whether it is safe to input my email into the your .apk's prompt.

Got a bit of reassurance from fellow XDA members. I successfully used this app to download .apk's (in numerical format without the .apk file extension) from the Google Play Store to my PC. I then renamed each download to it's respective name, i.e. 262 > ES File Explorer File Manager.apk, transferred the .apk file to my SD, then installed it.

I found it appropriate that this application absolutely does not allow downloads of any "paid for" apps which I have previously purchased.

Thanks Sangeet007

Default Google Chrome has disabled .apk download functoonality

Google Chrome web browser (Version 36.0.1985.125 m) has disabled the 2.1.2.crx .apk download extension, and it no longer functions. It cannot be re-enabled in Tools>Extensions. Uninstalling and reinstalling Google Chrome web browser, and then following the OP again, lets me drag, drop, and install 2.1.2.crx as an extension, but now this APK Downloader 2.1.2 extension is immediately grayed out upon installation. The enable box is there, but cannot be enabled.

This worked yesterday upon first installation. When working, it only downloads free applications. I successfully downloaded a few free app (installable.apk's) which I use. When reverting back to stock or a different ROM, I find having these installable .apk's much more convenient to use than going to the Google Play Store and searching then downloading each and every app.

My advice to anyone who initially finds this Chrome extension working, is to download as many free apps you feel you may possibly want. You will probably end up with a larger installable library of free appw than the one I have. Following is a listi of my app library:

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ ^^
Any "pro", "paid", or "donation" versions of the above files cannot be downloaded even with a working installation of the APK Downloader 2.1.2 extension.

Google was free and open as a start up, welcoming any and all developers. The future of Google looks increasingly controlled and locked down.

This specific experience of mine with the APK Downloader 2.1.2 extension is a prime example. Google explains and excuses the foregoing automatic Chrome web browser actions as protecting me the end user. Total bunk!! And it is not piracy downloading free apps.

Default It works again

As I said in previous post.
"My advice to anyone who initially finds this Chrome extension working, is to download as many free apps you feel you may possibly want."

Otherwise there is a workaround. I went through my registry deleting selected "google update" entries, and "chrome entries", after installing Chrome. Then reinstalled Chrome browser. and now can download again as per OP.
