The extension for an Android package file, which typically contains all of the files related to a single Android application. The file itself is a compressed collection of :
  1. An AndroidManifest.xml file
  2. Application code (.dex files), 
  3. Resource files 
  4. Other files. 
A project is compiled into a single .apk file.
