1. What is

    AndroidDrawer lets you browse, find, and download older version of your favorite android app. Our goal is to provide you with the simplest method of downloading the newest version as well as even older versions of your favorite Android App — on a android .apk (application package) format.

  2. How do I contact

  3. What is a .apk file?

    According to WikipediaAndroid application package file (APK) is the package file format used to distribute and install application software and middleware onto Google’s Android operating system

  4. Where does the .apk file came from?

    All .apk files at came from two sources:

    • Google Play Store app (already installed on your device)
    • App developers submits their app to us (haven’t submitted yet? Use this form to submit your app to AndroidDrawer)
  5. Is it safe to download an app here at

    Rest assured, it is completely safe. How can we say this? First of all, we said above that all apk files came either from Google Play Store or App Developers themselves. And secondly, we use MD5 to verify the integrity of the apk file (you can see it below every “Download This Version” button).

  6. I see random numbers and letters below the download button?

    Every download button on the app page here at AndroidDrawer has it. Don’t worry, it’s a MD5 hash value. MD5 is a 32 digit hexadecimal number. We use it here to verify the integrity of the .apk file. It’s a proof that we’re not modifying(seriously? why should we do this?), reverse engineering(neither this), repacking or modifying(respect the property of the developers) any app that you download from

  7. How to download an app

    Browse the page of the app that you want to download. Once the page has fully loaded, you should see a big green button on the right side of the page with the text “Download This Version (file size) and MD5 checksum. Click to download and wait for the download to finish.

  8. How to install an .apk

    • Downloaded the apk using your mobile device:
      After you have successfully downloaded the .apk file. Head to Settings > Security > Check Unknown Sources > OK. Once done, use your preferred file browser and go to the folder where you have set your downloads to be (mostly, it is on the folder named Downloads). Look for the file that you have downloaded and tap to install.
    • Downloaded the apk using your laptop or PC:
      If you take this approach, you need to copy the downloaded apk file first from your computer to the device you want to install it to, and then follow instruction “Downloaded the apk using your mobile device”
  9. I cannot download an app

If you have concerns regarding an app feature, design, performance, bug report, usability or technical requirements, we strongly recommend that you directly contact the developer of that app.

  11. How to contact the developer of an app?

    You have two different ways of finding an app developer contact information:

    • Visit the app page on AndroidDrawer and click on the developer name (below the app icon). It will load the website of the developer if he/she has a website.
    • Google Play App: You can obtain a contact e-mail from the Google Play Store application by browsing the page of an app and scrolling to the bottom of the page. Under Developer pane, you should see “Visit webpage” and “Send Email”
