Questions & Answers

Q: What is an APK File?

A: Just like Windows (PC) systems use an .exe file for installing software, Android does the same. An APK file is the file format used for installing software on the Android operating system.

Q: If I install an APK from this website, will I be able to update the app from the Play Store?

A: Yes, absolutely. The Play Store installs APKs it downloads from Google's servers, and sideloading from a site like ApkClean.net goes through a very similar process, except you're the one performing the downloading and initiating the installation (sideloading).
As soon as the Play Store finds a version of the app newer than the one you've sideloaded, it will commence an update.

Q: Why ApkClean.net can guarantee APK 100% safe?

A: Whenever someone wants to download an APK file from ApkClean.net, we'll check the corresponding APK file on Google Play and allow user download it directly (of course, we'll cache it on our server). If the APK file does not exist on Google Play, we'll search it in our cache.

Q: What are Android App permissions?

A: Apps require access to certain systems within your device. When you install an application, you are notified of all of the permissions required to run that application.

Don't hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or concerns.

User's Reivew

5 ★This app is like WinRAR But for ur phone. This app really helped me when opening RARs and zips. Because, sometimes the system doesnt recognize the rar or something like that, but this will really help u if you want to open rars or zips and etc.
3 ★Works well don't use it much to have to manage a subscription for it. I would offer a 1 time payment for the app.
5 ★perfect but comperrsion algorithms and other codings of packages heavily miss arounding of it , i hope universitys and institute s take a step forward like we did at azad islamic university
5 ★Simple, easy to use, and get the job done. Doesn't have any annoying ads. Totally recommended.
1 ★Ever since you started begging for money your apps quality has diminished. It claims files don't exist, files can no longer be opened without always setting preferences, app continuously crashes. Begging is one thing, ruining your app is another.
5 ★absolutely love this app. i just tried it today hence, i didn't subscribe to it yet but will do once i upgrade my gadget next year. thanks developers.
4 ★Would like to have it more integrated into a filemanager but I understand it's a work in progress and am happy to support the work. Thank you. It does work very well
5 ★beautiful app, i've been using this app for about 2 years and i got NOTHING to complain about.
5 ★Really good app,i used it to unzip a file that other apps couldn't extract and i love the repair function
4 ★Nice application, but it doesn't support auto switch light/ dark mode based on system setting.
5 ★Way better, no ads! And you fixed the Android 11 bug. You've got my support!
5 ★Thanks to this app I'm able to delete data/storage I don't need and the app is very organized when is needed.
