App Manager v2.5.14 (Pre-release) (Open Source)






Yet another Android package manager and viewer but...


1. Copylefted libre software (GPLv3+)
2. Material design (and a nice UI)
3. No useless permissions
4. Does not connect to the Internet (the permission is required for ADB mode)
5. Displays as much info as possible in the main window
6. Lists activities, broadcast receivers, services, providers, permissions, signatures, shared libraries, etc. of any app
7. Launch (exportable) activities, create (customizable) shortcuts
8. Block any activities, broadcast receivers, services or providers you like with native import/export as well as Watt and Blocker import support (requires root)
9. Revoke permissions considered dangerous (requires root/ADB)
10. Disable app ops considered dangerous (requires root/ADB)
11. Scan for trackers in apps and list (all or only) tracking classes (and their code dump)
12. Generate dynamic manifest for any app
13. View/edit/delete shared preferences of any app (requires root)
14. Display running processes/apps (requires root/ADB)
15. Display your app usage, data usage and app storage info (requires “Usage Access” permission)
16. APK files can be shared (hence the use of a provider)
17. Clear app data or app cache (requires root/ADB)
18. Batch operations: clear app data, disable run in background, disable/kill/uninstall apps
19. One-click operations: block ads/tracker components, block components by signature, block multiple app ops

…and other minor features such as installing/uninstalling/updating/enabling/disabling apps, displaying app installation info, opening on F-Droid, Aurora Droid or Aurora Store combining the features of 5 or 6 apps any tech-savvy person needs.

Due to some major changes, backup functionality has become incompatible with the previous versions. Data backup feature is still considered experimental and please do not rely on it to manage your backups yet. If you encounter any problem, please report to me without hesitation.


Compatibility for blocking rules is removed for v2.5.6. If you're still using this version, update to v2.5.13, enable global component blocking (and disable it again) and then update to v2.5.14.
