Android applcation location (APK) of Installed applications from Android Market

We always use  Android Market to download and install Apps but we never know where the downloaded  APK installer file of that applicationis saved !!!!!!


Important requirement to begin with is you need a Rooted Phone.

On a rooted Android phone, Download  ES File Explorer.
If you are you are using ES File Explorer then
1.  go to settings and
2 enable “Root Explorer” option to get access to root Directories.

3.  Go to location address – /data/app/  here all apks are stored




This is useful if one wants  to backup  the installers which saves time as no need to download them again

 Also,  APK can can be send to other  mobile phone via Bluetooth
