    • Close Google Chrome application [!Important!]
    • Right click on the Chrome shortcut and select "Properties"

  6. Enter email and device ID on Options page
    1. There are two ways to get Email and Device ID
    a. Easy way: install this Device ID app, it will show you your GSF ID and Device ID, what we need here is GSF Android-ID (used by Google Services)
    b. Difficult way: Open dial pad, call *#*#8255#*#* ( 8255 = TALK ). If it opens “GTalk Service Monitor”, find lines that begin with JID and Device ID. Your email is JID, and your device id is a string that after android- prefix
    For example: if it shows android-1234567890abcdef , then your device ID is1234567890abcdef
    Do not type in random email or device ID, it won’t work
  7. That's it. You can now start using APK Downloader.

    **After logging in, you can navigate to any Google Play App page, and click the APK Downloader icon in the Address bar to download the .apk to your desktop!
