Install APK on Your Android Phone

First, you need to install the APK file on your android phone. In order to do that, simply follow the steps below:

  • Browse your phone memory/external memory and tap on the APK file.
  • Click ‘install’

  1. Does anyone get zip OBB file yet, there are lots of comments all looking for OBB file where to get it admin bro help?

  2. people listen now the apk file is just the game interface program and the OBB directory is the place where all files like maps cars models sounds, go…. just to make this clear you cant use the apk only without the obb dir. obb dir is where the actual game is and the apk just a launcher basicly

  3. Hello i followed all the instructions after installing i can’t play it it says “Storage Permission Required”. Please give me a solution.

  4. @Justin Barracosa
    Warez sites are sites with pirated or cracked software.
    I also join my friend’s question. Where should I get the said OBB file? You write to do this, you don’t write how

  5. For the obb file to work properly, it must have this name exactly like this: Otherwise it won’t work. Numbers are the version of the installed apk

  6. First of all, on
    “Where to put the OBB or Data file?”
    “First of all, unzip/extract the downloaded OBB or Data file in your PC or laptop.”

  7. this site is great but there are some old versions such Oxford Learner’s Bookshelf apk, Oxford Learner’s Bookshelf apk. please upload the latest version of these apps and please upload Tandem Language Exchange latest version apk.

  8. Hello,

    Thanks for the app!

    I have installed the apk file but there is no other folder appears to copy into the data and obb folder. Do i need to connect my phone to my laptop and open the apk file with Winrar ? Sorry is my first time this trick.

    Thank you

  9. Can’t open the apk, error : there was a problem while parsing package. All other downloded mods work, there is something wrong with this one

  10. Hi. I’ve downloaded the mod APK and obb of Asphalt 9 and copied and pasted the obb to obb file on my external sd card, installed the mod apk but upon opening the app it still asking me to download 2.3 GB of files. Isn’t the same as the obb file which is 1.95 GB. Should I proceed to download cause there’s no other way I can play this but to download the “additional” 2.3 GB files.

  11. Can you guys please make a tutorial video for how to install the application and the data or obb files, just to make it clear.

      • ….. The apk (the app) has been ”patched/cracked” in a sence. . This app does not require a obb file…. the dude is explaining how to install mod apk’s….. In general… As in if you happen to come across one of these modded apps one day, you unzip it and fined that there is a obb or data file that came along with it you should plainly copy and place these files into the correct corresponding folder witch you’ll fined on your storage (a file called Android) .. So obb file go’s to obb and data file will be pasted in to data. In any ways….. Mostly only your Android games come with OBB files and your apps that can do photo editing, text front or any kind of user information will come with a Data file… ………. ay Mr Admin

          • I’m assuming that everyone is referring to the OBB files that you have been referring to.

            I don’t know if I fully understand the theory correctly behind the need for OBB files? But as I VERY loosely understand it, I believe the installation of the OBB files in question is required in order to provide the “premium” or “modified” features of the app in question.

            Is that what OBB files are used for?

            If not, then what are they used for?

            Are they needed for the APKs on this site?

            I think others are asking where to find those files? ie. That it to ask: “Are the files here not ‘premium’ as they are? Are OBB files required?
            Which files, for which app?
            And where are they found?”

            You mentioned “Warez” sites? What are these?
