Using adb to install APKs

This is something that tickles me and needed to do for a batch installation.  The commands are:

adb install -r <app name.apk>


adb uninstall <app name.apk>

to uninstall.

To actually get the APK, you can use multiple sources, but if I want to download an APK for re-use, I go to the Google Playstore and physically click on the release (i.e. youtube).  I then copy the address in the addressbar.  I then use download APK’s from address to download the APK.

The rest is easy 🙂
