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

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

An 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 back up  the installers which save time as no need to download them again

 Also,  APK can be sent to other mobile phones via Bluetooth
