How to Easily Transfer Apps from Android to Android Phone

Posted by on .

On Android devices, it is simple to transfer sms, contacts, pictures, music and videos via Bluetooth or similar apps available on Google Play Store. But the problem arises when it comes to transfer apps from one Android phone to another. It was practically impossible since apps are installed from APK files and there are folders/data associated with the app. However, many Android users want to get it done when switching to a new Android device. Don't worry; there are a few options you can choose to solve this transfer issue.

In this shorty tutorial, we will show you two methods to transfer apps between Android and Android. These methods require no rooting at all. While, there are many applications available on Google Play Store but most of them will only help to transfer multimedia files and not applications. Please note that the first method is only applicable for Android devices, if you are iOS user then use method two as that is applicable to both Android and iOS users.

Solution 1: How to Transfer Android Apps via Bluetooth

Bluetooth was the most effective way to transfer files between different devices on old cell phones. It is still not a bad option for file transfer in nowadays. However, it may be a little bit time consuming. Plus, not all Android dveices could be paired via Bluetooth. I suggest giving it a try first. If it doesn't work, then go straight to Solution 2.

Step 1. Start Google Play Store and download "APK Extractor" and install it on your phone.

Step 2. Launch APK Extractor and select the app that you wish to transfer and click on "Share".

Step 3. Start Google Play Store and download "APK Extractor" and install it on your phone.

Step 4. Choose via "Bluetooth" and on the following pop up enable Bluetooth to start the operation.

Step 5. Turn on Bluetooth from the other Android phone and start the transferring process. After the transferring is finished, you can now install the app on the other Android phone.

Now, this process is a little bit hectic since you will have to use a third party app and the process is quite slow and unstable. If you are looking for a hustle free method then we will recommend using method 2.
