After hours of research i was able to create a download link for my app on a windows server. here are the instructions for doing so.

under iis create a mime type by right clicking on your server name then click properties. select mime types button and add .apk with the mime type


create a download.aspx page or whatever you want to call it

add the following to your page

<asp:HyperLink ID="lnkdwnload" runat="server" NavigateUrl="~/myfile.apk">Download myfile</asp:HyperLink>

Next in web.config add the following under <system.webserver>
<mimeMap fileExtension=".apk" mimeType="application/"/>

Restart IIS and your users can now download your app

Make it a great day..
