Query about APK files
Hi. I would like to ask about .apk files.
I have had the eternal issue of certain apps and games on the Google Play store not being compatible with my device.
Had a Kindle Fire HD. Tried downloading apps thru a 3rd-party source (like 1Mobile) but got frustrated because apps are sometimes "in conflict" with the Kindle App Store-downloaded apps.
For example this game called The King of Fighters-A 2012. If i buy the new Nexus 7 and its not compatible i have to endure the hassle of returning my device to the store, wait for my refund then buy another device. There seem to be no info on device compatibility on certain apps or games nowadays.
So, this leads me to my question:
1. To avoid the frustration of having a device (Kindle Fire, Nexus 7, Galaxy Tab 3, etc) that's incompatible with the app...what is the best way to download an app?
2. Will downloading an .apk file be "sufficient" i.e. dealing with issues such as updates, etc.?
3. What or where would be a good source of .apk files on the net?
