Download Apps from Google Play Store Via PC [2 ways]

May 04, 2013 at 06:21PM
These days, Android has emerged as quite a powerful OS for portable systems. Thousands of Apps, Unlimited Fun and what not?
       The main power of Android lies in "Play Store", which lets you download apps on your device. Though very good, but it has a big drawback i.e. you can only download apps straight to your android device and not on any other platform. People who have a good Wi-Fi or a Internet Pack have no problem with that, but some people [Like Me] who have a very slow connection, even on mobile, surely do suffer.
          But not worry my dear readers, as after crawling on Google for hours, I've found a perfect solution to overcome this drawback.

                                                                       WARNING!
