Bluetooth App Sender is great little app that lets you send an app from one Android device to another.
Bluetooth App Sender is a clever solution to a problem you may have never knew you had. What it lets you do is send an app from one Android smartphone or tablet to another device. This is made possible by how self-contained APKs generally are. Let’s say you turn your friend on to a new social media app. Rather than them having to find it in the store and download it, you can just send it to them in a matter of seconds. Businesses, schools and so forth can also use this to share custom apps among groups.
The app is at its best when both the sender and receiver have it installed, but that isn’t the only option. One user can send via this app, and other users can access via Dropbox, Facebook or numerous other services. This may even be preferable when sending an app to a group, and adding more direct group support is one way in which Bluetooth App Sender could really improve.
Bluetooth App Sender is free. Use it on as many devices and as often as you like without paying. The developer earns revenue with ads. Over the course of this app’s existence, that ad support has been relatively inoffensive. More recently, some users have complained that the ads have become more pervasive and even invasive. Even when not in use, the app can send ads through notifications. This can be blocked, but casual users may not be aware or know how to do that.

Potentially dangerous permissions
- ACCESS_COARSE_LOCATION: Allows an app to access approximate location. Alternatively, you might want ACCESS_FINE_LOCATION.
- ACCESS_FINE_LOCATION: Allows an app to access precise location. Alternatively, you might want ACCESS_COARSE_LOCATION.
- READ_EXTERNAL_STORAGE: Allows an application to read from external storage.
- READ_PHONE_STATE: Allows read only access to phone state, including the phone number of the device, current cellular network information, the status of any ongoing calls, and a list of any PhoneAccounts registered on the device.
- WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE: Allows an application to write to external storage.
- ACCESS_NETWORK_STATE: Allows applications to access information about networks.
- ACCESS_WIFI_STATE: Allows applications to access information about Wi-Fi networks.
- BATTERY_STATS: Allows an application to collect battery statistics
- BROADCAST_STICKY: Allows an application to broadcast sticky intents. These are broadcasts whose data is held by the system after being finished, so that clients can quickly retrieve that data without having to wait for the next broadcast.
- INTERNET: Allows applications to open network sockets.
- RECEIVE_BOOT_COMPLETED: Allows an application to receive the ACTION_BOOT_COMPLETED that is broadcast after the system finishes booting. If you don't request this permission, you will not receive the broadcast at that time. Though holding this permission does not have any security implications, it can have a negative impact on the user experience by increasing the amount of time it takes the system to start and allowing applications to have themselves running without the user being aware of them. As such, you must explicitly declare your use of this facility to make that visible to the user.
- WAKE_LOCK: Allows using PowerManager WakeLocks to keep processor from sleeping or screen from dimming.
