ApkRenamer Organizes Your APK Files

Is your Android device full of APK files that you can’t even identify? They may have names along the lines of ‘asdf’ or ‘asdfasdffdsa,’ and while scrolling through archives of these nameless APKs just to find one certain app, regret starts to sink into your conscience. ApkRenamer ventures to rid of this dire inconvenience and save your sanity.

Independently developed by XDA Forum Member Svarion, ApkRenamer is an app that renames your APK file called ‘asdflasdrf1′ to the original name of the file. The app does this by searching through a user defined file directory and displaying the actual name of the APK files present by looking at their package names. Then, by simply selecting the APKs you wish to have restored and pressing the ‘Rename files’ button, your applications get their original names back. Svarion also included some nifty and convenient customization options as well, such as searching subfolders, different name separators, and whether to include the app name or version.

Presented with pleasant Holo aesthetics, ApkRenamer is sure to be a useful and practical app for many Android users. Its functionality is much needed and though it may not be revolutionary, it sure is nice to see another development homegrown in the XDA Forums. ApkRenamer is compatible with Android versions 4.0 and newer, and can be downloaded for free from the Play store. So if you need your APKs sorted out, make sure to check out the original thread.

T-Mobile Galaxy S6 Battery Woes

I've been using a T-Mobile Galaxy S6 since the device launched with T-mobile's service. However, over this past holiday weekend I knew I would be in an area without reliable T-Mobile service. So, I opened up T-Mobile's default "Device Unlock" app , pressed unlock, and placed my AT&T SIM card in the device. Everything seemed to be working fine: strong signal, great LTE, good voice calls - until day 3. On Sunday, my Galaxy S6 felt very hot to the touch and...

Earthquake Early Warning in Your Pocket

Probably all of us reading this have a smartphone in our pocket. For many of us, the smartphone has become our primary method of reading and writing e-mails, messaging, and browsing the web. Though proclamations that "smartphones have replaced the personal computer" typically fall on deaf ears, the statements aren't without merit. Indeed, smartphones have "replaced"—or more accurately, "displaced"—PC's in several areas that they have traditionally been dominant. But how many of you look into your pocket, or on your desk, and...
