The apps and the APKs They offer you the same thing, there is no difference there, for example: a WhatsApp app and APK will have the same operation, however, the difference is in the way of installation, while you get the applications from Google Play Store automatically, the APKs must be installed and updated manually.
Surely you will ask yourself, why do I complicate myself installing APKs when they are practically the same? The answer is the following, not all cell phones are compatible with Google Play applications, and even some are not found in this store, so users choose to download APKs.
