After flashing a custom ROM, you no longer have Google Play available on your phone.
You updated an app, but the new version causes nothing but trouble and you want to go back to the previous version.

Why You need to use Raccoon?
Raccoon serves many use case scenarios, likely yours as well! Below are the top three arguments.
Your privacy matters!
Once you hook up your phone with a Google account, things will start to happen, you’d rather not want to be told about. In a nutshell Google monitors your every activity and collects more material than a two-bit gumshoe on a divorce case.
Your bandwidth matters!
Smartphones are all about apps. You download them, you try them out. Some become your daily drivers, others are just fun once in a while, and eventually your collection grows too big to fit entirely on the phone and you start swapping. With Raccoon, swapping is fast and painless. All your apps are backed up on your PC, so you’ll never have to download them again.
Your safety matters!
Unlike APK mirror websites, Raccoon guarantees that you will always get the original APK file of the most recent version of the app you are looking for. There is no man in the middle, you’d have to trust.
Your choice matters!
Raccoon is all about putting you in control over your phone:
Bypass region locks
Download incompatible apps
Roll back troublesome updates
Inspect apps for shady behavior

Manage multiple profiles:
Raccoon has to mimic an Android device in order to get service from Google Play. Unfortunately, the Android market is very fragmented and Play will never allow a device to download apps, it is not compatible with. Premium users get to configure multiple device profiles and switch between them at their leisure.
Raccoon comes with a build-in webserver that allows you to easily download apps and other files to your device via WLAN.
Raccoon is not just an APK downloader, but also the place to keep all your apps, whether they come from Google Play or alternative markets such as Humble Bundle.

Now Let’s discuss in short How can you use the program to search, download and install apps to your device:
Searching and downloading apps
Searching Android apps with Raccoon works exactly like searching apps with the Play app or via the Play website: simply type whatever you are looking for in the search box. More search results are automatically loaded when you scroll down.
Installing apps on your Android device
Once an APK file is downloaded to your desktop PC, it needs to be transferred over to your Android device for installation. You have three choices for doing so, each method having it’s own merrits:
Via USB cable, using the ADB tool
Via WLAN by scanning a QR code
Using the ADB (Android Debug Bridge) Tool offers the most comfort and should be the method of choice since it also offers other benefits.
Your Google Account – Staying safe
Google Play does not allow anonymous access. A valid Google Account is required for every operation, even for downloading free apps. You are strongly advised to register a fresh account exclusively for using with Raccoon.
It is an open source,easy to use Google Play desktop client / APK downloader for downloading Android apps on Windows, Mac OS and Linux PCs.
