    it is nothing but a type of file format used to distribute and install application onto Google Android OS

    APK files are ZIP file formatted packages based on the JAR file format

    Hi

    THE FULL FORM OF .apk IS " ANDROID APPLICATION PACKAGE FILE "

    As you may know that every application or software supports only one type of file like .doc, .png, .jpeg, .mp3, .xls, etc for the Microsoft Office Softwares. So Similarly there is this .apk format which is a format of files, themes, games, etc and other applications which is for the android.

    If a file or application is not in this format then it would not work properly on ANY Android device..

    Hope its clear..
