Organizing APKs on your PC is quite a tedious process. More likely than not, they’re probably named as nonsensical gibberish, and trying to find a specific APK is akin to the ‘needle in a haystack’ cliche. That’s probably why apps such as ApkRenamer are great tools for the typical Android user. If, however, you’re looking for something that does the same thing on your PC, you may want to check out XDA Senior Member pesiran‘s APK Organize.
APK Organize is a free program for Windows PCs that comes with a suite of functions that’ll help organize your APKs—specifically to rename, compare, search for, install and uninstall, and backup and restore APKs. Renaming APKs goes further than just individual apps on your PC, as APK Organize allows for batch renaming, pattern renaming, and renaming of APKs on your device. It also comes with a monitor feature that automatically renames any APKs you place into a specific folder. The compare function allows you to easily and efficiently delete, copy, and move files to a specific directory. And if you want to install/uninstall, copy/move, or backup/restore select apps, you can do so with the search feature. Installing and uninstalling apps on your device simply requires a connection to the device with ADB enabled, and the same requirement goes for the backup and restore function.
The only other requirement is that .Net Framework 4 must be installed on your PC. But other than that, there’s really not much else that’s needed. APK Organize is free exclusively on the XDA forums, and is being constantly supported and updated by pesiran. If you would like to give APK Organize a go, be sure to visit the original thread for more information and download._________
