This is simple description:
Android application package (APK) is the package file format used to distribute and install software (usually games or apps) onto Google's Android operating system (Windows PC systems uses exe files).

To make an APK file, a program for Android is first compiled, and then all of its parts are packaged into one file. An APK file contains all of that program's code (such as .dex files), resources, assets, certificates, and manifest file.

APK files are a type of archive file, specifically in zip format packages based on the JAR file format, with .apk as the filename extension. The MIME type associated with APK files is application/vnd.android.package-archive.
