Conversion of Android apk packages to Windows Phone xap application format.

There is no way to directly convert the Android installation package (.apk) to Microsoft Windows Phone or Microsoft Silverlight application package file (.xap), which users looking for apk to xap conversion want. You cannot convert apps meant for different platforms via some apk to the xap converter app, and you can't run apk files on Windows phones.

With that said, many developers provide apps for multiple platforms, so check if the Android app is also available for Windows Phone or in a desktop version based on Silverlight. The only other option would be a job for a program, i.e., to port the Android app for Windows.
