    I have downloaded the Sideload Wonder Machine and a couple apps that I want to use it on, but my downloads all show up as a winzip file with .apk in the name. Such as "shakethemall.apk.zip". How do I make them a .apk file so that the sideloader will use it?

    ive never had a .apk.zip but ill try and help. my only guess would be you need to unzip it first and then maybe there is an .apk file in there

    Looks like winzip pro is recognizing that it can open the file and automatically adding a .zip at the end of the file. Not sure how to fix it, but I would start looking in the settings for that program, or any other similar programs you may have installed.

    Ok thanks. I figured it out. I had to change the file extension type after fiddling with the folder options. It works now.
