Shameless plug but I think it would come in handy for quite a few people.

This tool allows you to download any (free) APK from the Android Market by simply entering it's package name. There's no requirement to install anything, enter your Google username/password or enter your device Id.

Check it out: http://ifc0nfig.com/apk-downloader/

I can see how it can come across as spam as I have 0 post history but it isn't - it actually works. Give it ago, nothing to lose.

This is the best tool of its kind and it really works. Thanks OP for this wonderful thing. Even there is a binary for windows on the website.

This looks rather interesting.

However, as you point out in your own website "you shouldn’t trust random binaries on the Internet and thus the C# source code is available if you wish to build it your self", it would be great to know how this works.

The C# app is just a wrapper for your web app. It doesn't show how it's done, so it doesn't allay any fears other than running the windows app. You still don't know anything about the apk that's downloaded.

Great idea though.

Exactly.

However I've downloaded a few small files and they match with the ones I already had.

I won't share how it's done but the APK is directly downloaded from the Play Store as if you were browsing it your self. Feel free to do MD5/SHA1 checksum comparisons of the apk from the play store and of the apk downloaded via this tool.
