To make that thing happen you have to follow two steps in transferring android apps using Bluetooth which are listed below:

I. Downloading Required Files:
Transferring android applications via Bluetooth can be performed through the use of two applications.
  1. Astro (Google Play Link)
  2. BlueTooth Transfer. (Google Play Link)
Astro is highly recommended as a file explorer for Android as it allows the user to backup their installed applications on the memory card as an APK file which allows them to restore their applications in case your phone malfunctions or crashes.

II. How to Transfer Apps Between Android Mobiles Via Bluetooth
  • Download and install Astro onto your Android phone.
  • Open the Astro application. The main screen opens with a search bar on the top and three tabs underneath – locations, searches and recents.
step 2
  • Navigate to “Tools -> Application Manager”.
step 3
  • In the Application Manager window, Navigate to the Installed Apps tab and select the application you want to transfer via Bluetooth. Press on the “Backup” button that appears.
step 4
  • The application should now be highlighted bright blue and also found in the Backed Up Apps tab. Exit out of Astro.
step 5
  • Download and Install Bluetooth File Transfer app onto your Android phone.
  • Open the Bluetooth File Transfer app, Navigate to the following folder “/mnt/sdcard/backups/” and select the file (with extension .apk) you want to transfer. In our case, we would find “ES File Explorer” in this location. Once the file is ticked, press the Bluetooth button.
step 7
  • The android phone should be listed under “Found Devices” or “Cache”. Click the relevant android and send the file. Once the other user receives the file, he/she will then be able to install it onto their android.
  • DONE
