Do you want to install FrostWire Plus on your Android and you’re getting the error:
“Can’t Open File”?
We’ve made this video to show you how to fix the ‘Can’t Open File’ error on Google Chrome when downloading .apk files on Android.
This tutorial works not just for the FrostWire installer but for any app installer (.apk file) you may have had to download from a website, and it works for every Android phone or tablet.
There’s no reason why Google Chrome should be blocking the installation of .apk’s with their browser which happens to be the default of most phones out there, any app can handle opening .apk files, Google has simply decided to have more control of the android ecosystem and is trying to force everyone to use their Google Play market.
If things keep going this way, Google will be able to censor app developers completely if apps don’t follow their whimsical market rules, eventually they’ll turn Android into an iOS like environment where you can’t simply install apps without using the official store, the biggest bait and switch in the history of personal computing. Google, don’t be evil.
