Pressuming you have the android sdk installed:

Put your phone into developer mode plug it into the computer, and enable adb

Open command prompt and navigate to the adb folder inside the sdk

adb devices

after this type:

adb install apkname.apk

or the other way enable allow installs from unkown sources put the apk on your phone navigate to it and then open it and install it that way but the first option is easy enough to make an install script for when you update it.

Hope this helps
