Modern app side-loading tool for Android apps to Windows 10 Mobile easy as drag and drop

Instalando-plicaciones-android-en-Windows-10-Mobile-1000x483We have seen the upsurge in tools to enable users to side-load Android apps over to windows 10 mobile phones. None however have an easy-to-use drag and drop feature like Modern app

Developer Antonio de la Iglesia from Spanish site MicrosoftInsider have gone one step further, creating a great-looking app which makes the process as easy as drag and drop.


Modern app is available in both Spanish and English and will of course only work with the following handsets.

Nokia Lumia 920Nokia Lumia 925Nokia Lumia 929 (Icon)Nokia Lumia 830Nokia Lumia 930

The download for Modern app can be found at

All tools are indeed side-loading itself may cause you legal issues or damage your device and is of course at your own risk.

Keep in mind that obtaining APKs of free or paid apps may be illegal in your country/area, so we recommend avoiding these tools and downloading APKs until Microsoft officially launches Project Astoria to developers to allow them to bring their Android apps to Windows 10 Mobile. It’s also worth noting that Project Astoria and this tool isn’t stable yet, and may damage your handset — again, avoid these tools and wait for Android developers to bring their apps to Windows 10 Mobile.
