Well I made a thread about the being able to do this but I decided to go ahead and just re-post the host sites guide.
Demo of what this add-on does. This is for Chrome only.

First: this project is made for my personal needs, then I decide to publish it because I think some people may need it. This is not a tool for pirating. It’s good or bad depend on how you use it. Please don’t make me look bad because of this.

This is the official page of APK Downloader. Do not download the extension from other sources.

Use at your own risk. I’ll not take responsibility for anything happen to you or your account.

APK Downloader is a Google Chrome extension that allows you to download Android APK files from Android Market to your PC

Download and Install: APK Downloader 1.2.1 (codekiem.com/apk-downloader/crx/1.2.1.crx) *USE AT YOUR OWN RISK*

Requirement: Chrome 17 or later

* Please read and follow this instruction carefully before using, or it WON’T WORK *

After installed APK Downloader, you’ll need to follow these steps in able to use it


I. Disable SSL error warnings

If you don’t do this step, the extension WILL NEVER WORK.

Below instruction is for Windows users. For OS X and Linux users, please read this post ( replace –remote-debugging-port=9222 in the example with --ignore-certificate-errors )



1. Right click on Chrome shortcut, select “Properties”

2. Switch to “Shortcut” tab. In “Target” field, insert [space]--ignore-certificate-errors at the end. Once you have that finished, click “OK” .

It will look something like this:
C:\…\chrome.exe --ignore-certificate-errors
or
“C:\…\chrome.exe” –ignore-certificate-errors

Close Chrome and open it again with that shortcut

3. Open APK Downloader Options page. If your screen looks like the right picture ( the warning box is gone ), then you disabled SSL error warnings successfully



II. Enter email and device ID on Options page

1. There are two ways to get Email and Device ID

a. Easy way: install this Device ID app, it will show you your emails and Device ID

b. Difficult way: Open dial pad, call *#*#8255#*#* ( 8255 = TALK ). If it opens “GTalk Service Monitor”, find lines that begin with JID and Device ID. Your email is JID, and your device id is a string that after android- prefix

For example: if it shows android-1234567890abcdef , then your device ID is 1234567890abcdef

Do not type in random email or device ID, it won’t work

2. Enter your email’s password, then press Login. If everything is ok, now you can use APK Downloader

III. Start using

After finished two steps above, you can start using APK Downloader. Open Android Market, view any FREE apps ( for example: Simple Text ), then press the APK Downloader icon on address bar ( see screenshot )

Subscribed..I'm gonna get on my pc and try this now. Thanks.

Ok. It works. Scary thing is though...

I added the [space]--ignore-certificate-errors to ONE Chrome shortcut, but the
extension worked on a shortcut that did not have the ignore-cert command.

However, after deleting the shortcut that had the command in it, the normal
shortcut without the command, gave an error when trying to download an app.

I will use this extension though. Very nice. Thanks again.

PS. If you are not using it, just go into your extensions, and disable it until you
want to use it again.

Thanks for actually trying it out. And yeah I've noticed it works for all shortcuts once you change it once. Or maybe were just both accidentally using a shortcut of that shortcut lol.

I have this APK Downloader working on my Chrome browser.
But when I try to download talkatone, in Google Play, I got this "This app is incompatible with all your devices."
How can I fix this mobile device settings, so that I can download the apk app?

Thank you.

That probably means that your Android devices are not supported by this app.

Try updating your software and see if that fixes anything.

I am testing VoIP firmware on a ATM7013 board running Android 2.2. I want to compare function of our firmware with VoIP software.
That is why we try to download this app.
Actually, our board show up as 3 "unknown" mobile devices in Google account. But unable to delete or update the device from account.
