How to install Store Apps and Cracked Windows 10 Apps to your Windows 10 Mobile

On Windows Phone 8.1, we had been doing this. Getting the appx files from the web, transfer that to SD Card, and then find it, install it from the store. This was very helpful, especially in countries like India where there are not much FREE WIFI hotspots and people are bound to rely on slow 2G/3G networks and the service providers working hard to raise the hikes. Add to this, the store would prompt you to connect to a WI-FI connection before you even think to download a heavy app/game like Asphalt 8:airborne.
Well, now Windows 10 Mobile is here. This was supposed to ease things a bit by removing the WIFI restriction and allow downloads over normal mobile data. It did so. You can now download apps/games on your mobile data. But has it helped anyway? I doubt. Getting the appx file from the web had an added advantage. We could share it among friends and colleagues. But with Windows 10, things have become complicated, there is no possible way to download the app “manually” from the store and install it. At the same time, the manual install/sideload experience has been refined.
So, how do you actually get the appx files? There is an un-official way to get them. More on this later.

Installing Windows 10 Store Appx/Appxbundle to Windows 10 Mobile

If you own a Windows 10 Mobile device, you are good to go. Follow these steps in order to get your device ready.

Head to Settings > Update & Recovery and tap on “For Developers

  • You will find three options here. Choose the Third one which lets you sideload any signed apps from other sources.
  • Next, transfer/copy the appx file of the app to your Phone/SD Card storage.
  • Browse to the file via File Explorer, tap on the file and it will throw an install prompt.
  • If you really want to give it a try, tap Install else tap cancel.
  • If all goes well, you will find the app under the app list under 20 sec or it will take upto 10 minutes depending on the size of apps/games you were trying to install.

Note: If you are trying to install apps/games which requires dependencies this method wont actually work. If that’s the case use our alternate method. This method will automatically install required dependencies for apps/games you were trying to install.

Alternate method to install Unmodded Store Appx/Appxbundle

If Installing Apps/games from SD card doesn’t work you can try this method on your Windows 10 Mobile. This method requires working Wifi connection to install apps. If you don’t have wi-fi at home turn on your phone’s mobile data and also turn on your Wifi Hotspot and move on to next step.

Head to Settings > Update & Recovery and tap on “For Developers“.

  • Under Device Portal, turn on remote diagnostics over USB and LAN connections.
  • You can either turn off Authentication or turn on it. Turning it off eases things a little bit.
  • After turning remote diagnostics On , It will provide an IP Address to connect to.
    wpppp
  • Enter that IP address either in W10 Mobile Edge browser or any PC Browser(depends on where you have appx to install). Make sure your phone is unlocked.
  • After authenticating to device portal page click Apps Section on the Top Left hand Side.Remote1
  • Under the Install App division Click Browse to select the Appx/Appxbundle you are about to install.Remote2
  • After adding the Appx/Appxbundle just Click  “Go” button and that’s it.If all goes well you can find your app under app list.(Using Fenice for Twitter as example).Remote3

FYI : We can install all apps/games using this method even paid ones you don’t own from Store. Those apps will tend to crash.
