How to back up and share an app on your Android Phone

Own an Android based phone and you always want to share with a friend with a Smartphone that awesome app? Then had constraints like no Internet connection or just getting to the Google Playstore seemed a hustle?

 The beauty about Android unlike other mobile operating systems is that you can share with any sharing capable app. From Gmail, Google drive, Whats App, the list goes on. The trouble here is that internet is damn expensive and if the person you want to send this to is just in the vicinity. Well, worry not here is an easy way back up that app and share it, with no root access is required! Using Bluetooth both you will be playing that awesome game or using that cool app.

Android has lots of file managers on it’s store, but I will use Astro file manager for this demo. You can easily back up any installed app and voila the apk is on your storage under backups and ready for sharing.  Enable installation of apps from unknown source, now you can install the apk.
