2] AppXplore: With the AppXplore tool, you can go through all the apps installed on your Android device and dissect many application details – app version, package names, certificates, permissions, signatures, activities, and lots of other information that would not be normally viewable from the device.

AppXplore is especially useful for seeing how much memory an app is using, and if the file is movable to the SD card. Likewise, developers can use AppXplore for testing and quality assurance purposes, to make sure their apps are showing the proper permissions in the manifest file. Check out the AppXplore page to download and get more information.

Once all tests have completed, a static HTML summary is generated with detailed information about each device and test. Read More
