Installing whatsapp without a google account

I have phones which I did not want to associate with a Google account, so installing applications is a bit of a pain without Google play.

Here are my notes to self in case I need to install or upgrade e.g. Whatsapp on those phones.

Plug in the source phone

./adb shell pm list packages | grep whatsapp
./adb shell pm path com.whatsapp
./adb pull /data/app/com.whatsapp-2.apk

Plug in the target phone

./adb install -r com.whatsapp-2.apk
