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.

M9: Is Throttling a Non-issue? Can’t We Trust Benchmarks?

When the first reports of the M9 overheating came to light, many forum users began a collective joke-round calling the phone a popcorn machine, a grill, and other unoriginal remarks that we’ve seen with every device that presents sign of overheating, from gaming consoles to graphics cards. In this sense, the internet is not very inventive, and the cycle of rehashed jokes re-surfaces on different products every year or so. This time it was the M9’s turn and it was...

What’s Next For Pebble?

It is all well and good stating figures, but what does $20 million of crowd funding mean for a company? The Pebble Time just recently ended their Kickstarter with over 4000% of their initial request which was just $500,000.  This level of funding is unprecedented for Kickstarter and it passed $1 million in less than an hour bringing with it a level of fame unavailable to many other OEMs.     Produced by the Pebble Technology Corporation (PTC), the Pebble Watch has...
