    APK Extractor

    his particular app takes an installed app on your phone and converts it to a .apk file.
    That way you can back up the app into an installer like file, and store that .apk anywhere you want.

    Typically, a user "installs" an app from the play store. It is automatically downloaded then installed.
    However, with apk extractor, you can retrieve the app and re-zip into a .apk file.

    Its real handy as you can send an application to a friend nearby and that friend has no internet access to the play store.

    Real world example would be, you have an awesome calculator app, which your girlfriend thinks its the best.
    Fortunately, she has an android phone. Unfortunately, she has no internet access. But that is ok.
    You have apk extractor. you run the app. convert the calculator app to a calculator .apk file. Then you
    bluetooth transfer the file over to her phone. Over on her phone now, she opens the file manager, and launches
    the .apk file. The calculator app installs on her phone. Thats when the girl hugs and proceeds to kiss you, the hero.

    Good app.

    Thanks for the tip! That's a good thing to have, especially if you want to run an old version of an app.

    I've been using this app for a while to store my current versions on drop box..

    That way, when an update breaks an app I have a backup.
