Raccoon is a simple to use tool that acts as a Google Play download client which allows you to grab APK files from the store without having to directly interact with it.
As straightforward as they get
Right off the bat, Raccoon is one of those download clients that won’t give you a hard time when it comes to obtaining the files you need. The application displays a user-friendly interface and should be easy to handle by just about anyone.
To download a file all you need to do is login to your Google account through Raccoon, search for the app, game or book you need and when you locate it, simply click the ‘Download’ button. It’s as simple as that and the target file is placed in the archive folder which Raccoon creates on your system.
Quick and detailed search results
It takes just a second for Raccoon to display the search results. They are all made available in a neat list and you are able to view besides their title, additional information such as developer, file size, publishing date, price, permissions and user rating which always come in handy.
Another thing you get is a small thumbnail with the cover of the app to help you identify it faster. As you can imagine, search keywords such as ‘Windows theme’ are bound to produce a large number of results and a preview image comes in handy. One aspect you should definitely take in consideration and be aware of is that the application helps you grab files but it does not act as a malware scanner. Be sure to scan any and every file you download before you use it any further.
Maintain your Google Play download anonymity
The best advantage of using Raccoon is that since you don’t use the actual store, your activity can’t be tracked by ad-bots and so you won't be spammed with app suggestions when you browse Google Play.
Raccoon offers additional advantages to obtaining Android APKs, such as always having them on your PC so you can install them while offline. So, with the above facts in mind, it’s safe to say that if you're looking to grab a few application package files from Google Play, then you should consider using Raccoon.
