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 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 can guarantee APK 100% safe?

A: Whenever someone wants to download an APK file from, 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

1 ★I needed this ONE TIME. once installed, you cannot uninstall it. It takes up space and is useless and cannot be gotten rid of. CAN NOT UNINSTALL. (PERIOD. NOT HARD TO UNDERSTAND. NO OPTION TO UNINSTALL. WILL NOT ALLOW UNINSTALL. How can I make it plainer?)
2 ★its good for when I can't find the remote but its really annoying every other minute its on my phone. it constantly sends alerts to my TV or soundbar or idk what its doing trying to cast but its annoying. it took me months to figure out it was the app making the nonstop alert sounds. I thought the soundbar was bad. get off my phone.
1 ★My wife has an s10+ from Verizon and the software crashed the phone so Verizon sent another phone but since phone only worked from safe mode I wasn't able to use safe switch in safe mode so it became pointless to have it. Safe mode wouldn't allow safe switch to run so lost all pics because phone requires safe switch to transfer pics
1 ★Best Buy store downloaded the smart switch app on to my old Galaxy S4 Android version 5.0.1 with not much free memory, but mostly empty SD card. They transferred the information to my new unlocked Galaxy S20 FE 5G with smart switch. All my S Memos ,and all my Polaris Office 5 files, except for downloads, are gone. Samsung help site expert says they are permanently gone, even though app description claims app does not delete files. Many of the files were not backed up.
2 ★Mixed bag, dealing with SMS is a bummer. In my old phone I used to lock essential or memorable texts. Than I could delete all not locked messages easily, and I did so frequently. This app copied all to my new Samsung, but the lock flag is missing. I have no clue how to restore them without long manual work with the old phone.
2 ★This app used to be super fast at transfering data from an old device to new Samsung phone. But now it's super slooooow. It takes 4 hours to transfer only 10gbs of data. My customers think that I doing something wrong. Whether it's wired or wireless, it won't work. Please fix this app fast.
1 ★Difficult to figure out. I just want to copy to my new tablet, not take hours to figure out an app, when. I can just connect things faster by hand. Was hoping for a fast alternative but maybe it has something to do with being and LG I'm trying to copy from.
2 ★No matter how many times I try it only gives me the option to send data from my new phone not to received it from my old phone,.......... And I will now edit this and perhaps you will read it once again. Both devices ARE galaxy devices. So your answer to my comment is untrue. I can send data alllllll day from my new phone to my old phone. But I can't receive data to my new galaxy from my old galaxy. It is not an option
1 ★The correct name for this app is "MORON SWITCH". The lamers at Samsung think that you'll only use this app to setup once. But I've had to use it several times to back up archives. Every time I've been put through hell deselecting what I do NOT want to send.
1 ★I am trying to send my info from a samsung J3, but the program on this phone S20 it ask only to tranfer to another device. Never ask or lets me transfer to this device. Never gives me an opption... Both phones are Samsung the new one is the S21. It say it will transfer out but not receive from the other Samsung phone.
5 ★Smart Switch is awesome, it move all my stuff from my S9+ to my new S20+ without any hassle!
5 ★Just works, great way to make phone transitions seemless. Although it will cook your phone while it's transferring.
