    XAP files are those executable files which are meant for Windows 8 phone, so whatever files you have received from your friend can be installed as the apps in your Windows 8 phone. Now follow the below mentioned steps to do it,

    STEP 1: Copy all the .xap files which you want to install in your Windows 8 phone to your SD card.

    STEP 2: Now go to Start -> Store -> SD card and wait for few minutes for all the .xap files to be loaded.

    STEP 3: Select the app which you want to install -> Select Install option.

    STEP 4: If your apps are compatible then you can see them in the Compatible apps list if not it will be shown in the Incompatible apps list.

    STEP 5: Once you have successfully installed the apps, you can see those apps listed in the Apps list from start.
