Step 1: Download the Flappy Bird APK game file to Your PC
All you have to do is download the APK file for the game and install that onto your Android phone. Download it from here (right click save as) or from our resource section at the end of this post and store it somewhere on your PC that you’ll remember. I’ve placed the .APK file on the site and on a few file sharing sites in case there is any issues.
Step 2: Check Android Settings and Compatibility
All Android apps/games have the .APK file extension and you don’t always need Google Play to install them. But 3rd party app installs are disabled by default on Android’s so you’ll need to enable them first. Just go to Settings > Application > tick “Unknown Sources” box or Settings > Security and tick “Unknown Sources” box for Android OS’s older than 4.0.
Step 3: Transfer the Flappy Bird APK to your Android device
Connect your Android mobile to your PC or laptop and transfer the APK file to your phones internal storage or SDK using a File Explorer app. You’ll need it to install the file and you can download one for free from the Google Play store. You can search “File Manager Free” or we recommend using File Manager Explorer by Rythm Software. Once installed, open it and browse for the APK file you transferred to your phone and select it. When asked if you want to install it say Yes. Follow the instructions and then boom! Flappy Bird game is installed onto your Android! 🙂
Now you have the Flappy Bird download for Android all you need to do is play it and you can get to see what all the feather ruffling is all about. Think you are good?
