What is APK?

An APK file is an app created for Android, Google’s mobile operating system. Some apps come pre-installed on Android devices, while other apps can be downloaded from Google Play. Apps downloaded from Google Play are automatically installed on your device, while those downloaded from other sources must be installed manually

Typically, users never see APK files because Android handles app installation in the background via Google Play or another app distribution platform.

However, there are many websites that offer direct APK file download for Android users who want to install apps manually themselves. In this case, you should be careful that you trust the source of the APK file,

What is OBB or Data files /folders?

An OBB file is an expansion file used by some Android apps distributed using the Google Play online store. It contains data that is not stored in the application’s main package (.APK file), such as graphics, media files, and other large program assets. OBB files are often stored in a device’s shared storage folder.

Since Google Play allows APK files to be only 100MB or smaller in file size, app developers must use expansion files to store additional app assets. Developers can create expansion files using any format they choose, such as .ZIP or .MP4, but they can also use the JOBB tool provided with the Android SDK to bundle and encrypt assets together within an OBB file.

Developers then upload these expansion files alongside their application’s APK file using the Google Play Developer Console. Users who download the app receive both the app’s APK file and its expansion files.
