Downloads: Nexus 5 APKs from the Android 4.4 Factory Image – Gmail, Maps, Keep,Hangouts, Wallpaper and More!

Android 4.4.Kit Kat 1

Since the Nexus 5 Factory image is now live, we figured we’d go ahead and start digging through it and looking for APKs. We found quite a few that do work on most devices (of course we can’t test every device). We’ve got them all listed down below for you. We’ve also included the Hangouts APK which we published just a little while ago. There are plenty of APKs here for you to play around with, but we must warn you that some of them may break things depending on the device you have. For instance I was side-loading the stock email app onto the Galaxy Note 3. But it won’t sideload because of Samsung’s stock Email app. Which means you’ll need to freeze or uninstall it then sideload the Android 4.4 app to get it to work. Just a little bit of trickery, not too bad though.

Android 4.4 Apps

Lots of apps for you to have fun with on your current phone while you await the Android 4.4 update or your brand new shiny Nexus 5. Google should be rolling out the OTAs for the other Nexus devices and Google Play Edition devices within the next week or so, so you’ll want to stay tuned for that. Otherwise, have fun with these.

Oh and don’t forget we’ve got the Android 4.4 wallpapers from the Nexus 5 as well. Which you can download from the link below. There’s not a whole lot of them, but the ones that are there do look pretty nice. I’ll be putting them on my Nexus 7 until KitKat arrives.
