    .apk is packaged software usually used on android phones.
    It is essentially a compressed archive.
    You should be able to open it up using Ark. Just right click on the .apk file and select "open with Ark"

    I'm a little puzzled why you would download something when you don't know
    what it is - that seems like a potentially dangerous thing to do, as it's
    a good way to end up with malware, viruses, and other similar issues.

    As others indicated, it's an Android package file, not something used by
    Linux at all.
