You better look for the APK from trusted developer or provider. There are several apps removed from Play Store due to certain reason. And now the app is available on its own official website so you still can enjoy the content without have to download it from the app store.

The process
The APK file can be downloaded directly from your smartphone or from your PC. You can go to the drawer of the app and find the Download button then click it. Then you can open the file to install it.
You will need a little longer time if you download it from the PC. So, you can use your internet launcher in your PC. You need to connect your android phone to the PC at the first place and then click the USB mass-storage mode to enable it. After that, you can drag the downloaded APK file and drop in into the storage of your smartphone. You probably will need some kind of file manager to locate the file before installing it even though some types of phone do not require that.

Again, I will remind you that downloading from third party may be a bit harmful so make sure it is safe before downloading free APK.
