Share an app

Experts,

Is it theoretically possible to share an app with another smartphone?  A link to an app?  ...?

If so, what would be involved?

For example, I really like my Kindle reader.  So here, good buddy, read this code on your device and presto!  You've got it downloaded on your Android.  Even better and probably way more complicated, here it is on your iPhone or BlackBerry.

Hi Glen Gibb,

Yes there is an app for that. I assume that You want to send them a link for an application that You have installed, so that they can install it from google play. I would use "Share Apps" from Squid Tooth LLC - developer. It is easy and it does the job very well. If You need file share, than would recommend "SHAREit" from "Lenovo Group" - developer.

Please let me know if You need any help.

Thanks,
D.

BUT if your question is "I bought an APP and i'd like to share it" then no. Until IOS8 on apple devices of course where they introduced family sharing.

Thanks.  Of course I am not suggesting that an app be shared outside copyright.  I'd like to know if I can code an app to do this, a free one sort of like ShareIt.  ShareIt is free and works well in the Android Space.  I'm wondering if there isn't some way to make it work cross-platform.

The problem with that is that even now there are few apps that work across or are available across all platforms.
