Downloading android apps

Have you ever tried to download an Android App with your computer? It is a pain in the ass! There are countless pages which offer free downloads. But as soon as you click the download link you are either redirected to some other page or you are kindly request to register before downloading. Some pages even do not offer any download link at all although the advertise free downloads.

Free download means it is for free, i.e. you don’t have to pay for it and you can download it when ever and for what ever reason you like. Nobody has to care about. And this includes: no registration! Of course, this might be different for commercial software packages because there should happen some payment in the background.
