How To: Download And Install Need For Speed Shift On Android Phone

NFS

Finally there is some good news for Need for Speed gaming fans who like to sprint on their Android phones. The .apk file for the Need For Speed: Shift Beta is now available and you can now download and install this game on your Android phone.

It is not known whether this is a demo or a complete version of the game. Also note that this .apk file was extracted from Motorola Droid, so we can very well speculate that this game is only going to work on Android phones which have at least 1 GHz processor. Here is the step by step guide on how to install Need For Speed: Shift on your Android phone.

Please note that you must have at least 2GB of free space on your Mobile or SD card to install this app.

  • The first step is to download the Need for Speed Shift .apk file from here.
  • After download is complete, place the file on your desktop [Or anywhere you prefer]
  • Now connect your Android phone to the computer and mount SD card.
  • Now copy the .apk file you just downloaded on the SD card root.
  • After you have copied the file on SD card, use “Apps Installer” or “Linda File Manager” to manually install this app on your phone.
  • Wait for the installation to finish and there you go! You have Need For Speed: Shift app installed on your Android phone.

  1. PROBLEM! I have Tim tq150, shift works perfect, no lagging. But almost every time it crashes- I run the shift, when the game is loaded and I am ready to race the game just turns off to android home screen. Any ideas?

  2. “extracted from Motorola Droid, so we can very well speculate that this game is only going to work on Android phones which have at least 1 GHz processor.” <——your a tad bit off….this game runs smoothly on a galaxy mini with gingerbread 2.3 and a 600MHhz PROCESSOR

  9. Hey

    saw all d comments!!!I installed d apk(from a different website) and it came with a cache file(which we needed to place in the directory -Android/data).
    I had problems similar to some of you–as in i could not see anything but maps!!
    i removed d cache file–and now it is working like a dream!!!!
    Btw- i have an optimus one(600 mhz procssr and 200 mhz adreno gpu) and it works perfectly.
    i came checking here coz a frnd of mine owns a wildfire s and d same apk cud not be installed in his system.
    1 Ghz thing is a myth—-lots of proccsrs wid 600 mhz are running it fine.

    • well i have a HTC Wildfire.. and i have 154 mb free on my phone… i have a 2gb SD card in.. but when i go to install it.. it says NFS Shift could not be viewed. Free up some space on your phone and try again… But i have 154 mb free on my phone… :/// i downloaded it from your link.. Ciprian!! http://forum.mobilism.org/viewtopic.php?f=408&t=133810…. can you help me??..

    • dude, obviously the post said
      AT LEAST 1GHZ processor
      wats wildfire? 500 MHZ or something?
      No use!

  16. You need to have at least 100mb free on phone memory … android doesnt install any app / game directly to sd card … you install it onto your phone memory and afterwards if you have FroYo and the app can support moving to sd you can move it. In my case i have a HTC Desire 61 mb free on phone and a lot of apps i use … cannot install coz not enough free space on phone … is crap but hopefully … gingerbread will save the day ;))) cheers …

  17. after i copy need for speed on the sd card, I use apps install to install but pop message said
    not enough space. I have 11gb on my microsd. How is that it is I dont have enough space
