How To Install APK With OBB Or Data File On Your Android Phone


Have you been trying to install your APK game that has OBB file on your Android Device? Yea! It is very easy and simple. OBB (opinary binary blob) is always created by Android developers in order to make the APK file function properly. OBB file contains Bundles of large assets like high quality graphics and many others.

So if you download any Apk game that has OBB or Data file with them, this tutorial will definitely help you to install the Apk and OBB file together in order for them to run on your Android Device.

It's preferable to download the OBB file of your game through your web browser than download it through the Apk file. Because if there is any problem while downloading the OBB file through the apk, you won't be able to resume your download. But if you are using a powerful Web browser to download the OBB file and a problem occurred, you will be able to resume the download at the break point. But know this, if you download your game data through the Apk file, the data files will be automatically installed in the game. Unlike downloading with your Web browser when you will have to manually install the OBB data for your game. Since any problem can occur during download, therefore I preferred downloading the OBB file with my Web browser.
