Apk Easy Tool is a lightweight GUI application that enables you to manage, sign, compile and decompile the APK files for the apps you are working on.
APK Easy Tool is absolute free for commercial and non-commercial use.
Please note: This tool is not meant for newbies, but meant for faster tasks for those who are lazy to use CMD
After 6 years, it has to be sadly announced that the project has been discontinued due to the changes my personal life, and lost the movitation to continue this project. I don't have the opportunity to get back to working on this anymore
Due to what happens with Android (Split APK/Android App Bundle, APK protections, Play Protect, system restrictions...) I decided to finish my Android journey right here. It was a nice experience, but not anymore.
The source code and assets are provided under download links. The project is based on C#, use Visual Studio 2019 or above to use it. Please feel free to continue developing with it, wish you good luck
Bitbucket server will be shut down at the end of 2022 (Jan 1 2023 00:00), users who use older version will no longer recieve update notification. Bitbucket became horrible service anyways, so there is no point keeping it up anymore

This tool may be flagged as virus by your anti-virus. It just typical anti-virus that doesn't like modding tools, don't believe in anti-virus
Softpedia labs has tested this tool multipletimes and still reported this tool 100% clean. See here: https://www.softpedia.com/get/Programming/Debuggers-Decompilers-Dissasemblers/Apk-Easy-Tool.shtml
For the first time you launch the tool, it will automatically set apktool.jar and work directories for you. You can change it in Options
Selecting/opening APK or decompiled folder will be used as your main project work. So if you doing actions, it will be placed in your work directories that was been set.
Spaces are supported but accent characters are barely supported, you may need to rename it before opening APK. APK filename that contains chinese, japanese etc will still not work.
Drag and drop are supported. The files would be placed on the same directory where the apk came from
You do not need to use Framework unless you know what you are doing, it is for ROM developers and System App modder only
It works the same way as the command line version, just a bit faster
I don't cover how to modify APK in general, that just beyond the scope

Same as apktool, APK Easy Tool is neither intended for piracy, game hacking and other non-legal uses. It could be used for localizing, adding some features or support for custom platforms, analyzing applications and much more. Just try to be fair with authors of an app, that you use and probably like.
