Browse Java Code of Your Favorite Applications Directly from Your Android Device

In the past few weeks, we’ve talked about several tools to decompile application and convert the output Java code. These tools, however, are for Windows and Linux PCs, and not Android devices. Naturally, these tools are very useful if you want to modify an application for your personal use or learn how to improve your own project.

Recently, yet another tool popped up to accomplish this task, but it has a unique twist. Show Java written by XDA Senior Member niranjan94 can decompile an application and show the code directly on your Android device. It’s a perfect solution for when curiosity takes hold, and you don’t have access to your PC.

The application uses two external tools: Class File Reader and dex2jar to get the code. The output is presented in an elegant, syntaxed form. Code is then stored on the SD Card, so you can even analyze it on your PC.

The application is still in a very early stage, which is described as Alpha by developer. There are still some bugs such as a slow decompilation process and lack of support for system applications. However, using the app is very simple. Just tap on one of installed apps and wait for result. Your device does not have to be rooted or have any additional apps installed.

You can learn more about this project and grab the newest APK by visiting the application thread.

The Witcher Battle Arena: Hectic Multiplayer MOBA Fun

Do you like MOBAs? Do you like gaming on your phone? Given that MOBAs (multi player battle arenas) have amassed millions upon millions of players, there's a chance you play LoL or DOTA. And here at XDA we love phones, and we spend a lot of time on them, so if you were to like gaming outside of smartphones you probably like some on them too. I personally like neither, and I simply download the latest 3D games to see the progression...

LG G4 Could Feature a… 3K Display?

According to myLGphones, a version of the LG G4 will not feature neither a 2K nor a 4K display - but 3K. If you are anything like me, your reaction to this news will be confusion. While we don't have many details about the sources of this leak, it has apparently been confirmed true by a poster at hardare.fr that gave some more details on model names for each version of the upcoming LG flagship. However, these leaks don't point towards all G4...
