How to Install Apps on Nokia X100

Nokia X100

Using Nokia X100 often involves installing third-party applications. They allow you to communicate with family and friends through social networks, watch videos, as well as perform a variety of tasks. Therefore, it is not surprising that many owners want to install applications on Nokia X100. This can be done in several ways.

Using Play Store

Almost every Android smartphone has a pre-installed Play Store, which is part of the Google ecosystem. It has a huge number of games and programs available. With its help, you can not only install applications, but also update them. To install games and programs through the Play Store, you need to follow a few simple steps:

  1. Open the Play Store app.

  2. Use the search bar or app categories to find apps.
  3. Go to the application page, click the Install button.
  4. When the installation is complete, click Open or Play (depending on the application type).

You can launch the installed applications not only through the Play Store, but also from the main screen of Nokia X100. Removal of third-party programs is also possible both through the Play Store and through the main screen of the smartphone.

Using Other App Store

The Android operating system is famous for its open-source code. Therefore, to install games and programs, you can use not only the Google Play, but also other app stores, for instance:

  • App Gallery;
  • APK Pure;
  • Aptoide;
  • GetApps and others.

This is not a complete list of app stores that you can use on Nokia X100. They are similar to the Play Store, but require manual installation, by default only Google Play is installed on the smartphone.

Installing apps without using the app store

Android open source also allows apps to be installed on a smartphone without using the app store. This installation method is called manual installation and is carried out using an APK file, which is an installation package for the Android operating system.

Downloading an APK file

You will have to look for the installation package yourself following the following steps:

  1. Open the browser.
  2. Enter a query in the search bar (application name download apk).
  3. Go to any site from the search results.
  4. Click the Download button.
  5. Confirm that you want to save the file.

After downloading the APK file, you will be ready for further installation of the application. This process also has difficulties, so it will not be superfluous to read the additional instructions.

How to install APK file on Nokia X100

By default, Nokia X100 prohibits the installation of games and programs from unknown sources. However, these restrictions can be removed by taking the following simple steps:

  1. Open Settings.
  2. Go to Passwords & Security .
  3. Go to Privacy.
  4. Go to Special app access.
  5. Select Install unknown apps.
  6. Activate the slider next to Allow from this source.

If you do not have this option in the phone settings on your firmware, then you can enable installing apps from unknown sources during next attempt to install APK:

  1. Open the File Manager.
  2. Go to APKs.
  3. Open the downloaded APK file.
  4. Click Install.

Depending on the size of the APK file, the installation will take from a few seconds to a minute. To update the installed application, you will need to similarly download and install the APK file of the new version of the application.
