LG is a well known brand and that is not because of android devices but its own devices which were launched earlier, but after the launch of Android OS its value decreased. However, LG is getting a good share of the Android Smartphone market with its new devices like the LG G2 and as all Android devices are equipped to prevent App installation from unknown sources other than Google Play Store, LG devices have the same restrictions on their devices which prevent users to install Apps or Games from Unknown Sources. This is a very big problem for many users because they are very much dependent on APK files from unknown sources and don’t want to download stuffs from Play store.
There are many Unknown Sources which are giving access to Apps present in App store like AndAppStore, Slide Me, Handango, and GetJar with even App developers like Game Loft. Apart from these sources which do their App installation themselves in case of smaller developers who offer Android Package (APK) file which should be downloaded and installed manually and for your android device to accept these files the option of “Allow Installation of Apps other than Play Store or unknown sources” should be ticked in the Security options of your Android device.
If this option is not present in your device then it is very difficult to install such apps and believe me unknown apps are something which are better that many paid apps in Play store. However if you are a LG user then don’t worry as the procedure to allow android app installation from APK is given below.
How to allow App installation from APK files in LG Android devices
Steps 1- In your LG Android device go to Settings
Step 2 – Now, in the General Settings go to Security under Personal
Step 3 – In security settings page under the Phone administration you can find Unknown Sources (Allow Installation of Apps other than Play Store). So, Tick it or Select it
Step 4 – When you are Selecting the above option a Pop up box will appear warning from doing so, which should be closed by clicking on OK or Cancel
Step 5 – Below that you can find Verify Source (Disallow or warn before installation of apps which can cause harm) – Un-tick or Deselect this and it’s all done.
When you have followed the above mentioned process you can now install apps on your LG android device using the APK files available on the internet even paid or apps which are removed from app Store like the Flappy Bird which can be installed freely using the APK files. Doing this will save a lot of your money and will also stop you from being extra dependent on Play store.
