how to download apk file from googleplay

if we use android phone, when we need to install new application, we go to google play and install the application. but we never get the apk file of the andriod application. And we can not download from google play as well.

So some websites have emerge to provide the solutions for this those website are:
- https://apps.evozi.com/apk-downloader/
- https://apkpure.com/
- https://apk-dl.com/

and there're also addons for firefox and google chrome that can do the same think, but it require to input google account and android phone id.

However, if you use ubuntu  we can use gplaycli to download apk from goodle play without provide any other information at all.

1- install gplaycli to our system
$ sudo apt-get install gplaycli

2- search for software you want, example i search for vnc
$ gplaycli -s vnc

3- download software that you want, but looking at the search result for the AppID that we are going to use in the download
$ gplaycli -d com.realvnc.viewer.android
