How to Download Apps from Google Play to PC using Real APK Leecher

This post is for those who are facing problem downloading Apps from Google Play using the older Google Chrome workaround. Folks at codeimba have created this amazing small tool called Real APK Leecher which allows you to download any Android application from Google Play directly on your PC. All you need is the account details of the Google Account connected to your phone.

Update: Just checked it today (5th October) and it works fine :)

How to download APK files using Real APK Leecher

  1. Download Real APK Leecher from here (updated to version 1.3.6)
  2. Extract the zipped archive to a new folder.
  3. Now browse to the folder and run Real APK Leecher.exe
  4. On the first screen, you need to fill out your Google Account and other details. Be sure to use the account connected with an Android Phone. To find out your Device ID, you need to install the Device ID app on your phone which can be downloaded from Play Store or directly from this link. Also select your county to make sure apps only available only to that country are also listed.
    Click on save when you’ve filled all the fields.

      It’s been a pretty old application and I believe that the devs have abandoned it. You should try some alternates, one is using this Online APK Downloader
