You will find the APK Downloader on top of the list. Now click on Options. It will ask for your google store email id and GSF ID (Google Service Framework ID) or Android Device ID.

What is the GSF ID (Android Device ID) and how to get it.

Android Device ID is a unique identification code for google. Google track your device by this ID while you download android apps and games. It gets changed if Android OS is upgraded,  the device is rooted and if it is factory reset.

Find your device id by typing *#*#8255#*#*, If this is not working, then you can get your Device ID quickly by an Android app called ‘Device ID’.

When you get your Device ID, fill your google email address, password and Device ID in APK Downloader Options form and click on button Sign in.
