APKPure is a website that allows users to download .apk and .xapk files in order to install apps on Android devices from outside the Google Play Store.[1][2][3] It is popularly used by users who have installed custom versions of Android on their devices without the Play Store, along with other popular sites like APKMirror, Aptoide, F-Droid and Uptodown.[1]

When Google and Apple removed the popular music app TikTok in April 2019, many websites told users to use mirror websites such as APKPure and APKMirror to download it.[4][5][6][7][8][9][10][11]
