I have a mess with my many .APK files sitting around on my PC. Some .APK files were renamed badly with names that don't make sense, let alone I have multiple versions of the same apps.
ApkSpy is a simple tool I hacked up tonight which allows you to easily view the manifest of an APK (screenshots attached - not up to date though) just by double clicking it. (It can even associate with the .apk filetype, yay!)
ApkSpy relies on the aapt.exe tool from the android SDK, so you must have that installed (or just copy aapt.exe from somewhere, that's the only file needed to run ApkSpy).
Would love to get feedback.
Off to bed now..
filenames with unicode might not work.
adb.exe/aapt.exe should be found in current directory or PATH
Install APK button
Rename file by package or application name
batch rename of all apk's in a directory
Added link to market
Added rename file, which renames the loaded apk to <packagename_version.apk>
