Finally Know Which Apk is Which with APK Batch Name for Android

XDA member phsorx came up with a very nifty little tool to make sure that you remember which apk does what from your installation files. If you are like many other Android owners, you probably have a bunch of apks that you downloaded for your Android device, but due to their names, you have a hard time trying to figure out which one is which. This app will take all of these apps with weird names and create a copy with a readable name. The dev claims that he had only made this for his personal use but has decided to share this with others.

Please leave any feedback you may have in the dev’s thread.

APK Batch Rename Tool recursively crawls input folder and all of its subfolders looking for Android Package files (.apk’s). It reads Label and Version info from apk’s found and creates a copy for each apk under the output folder but using the Label and Version info acquired.

For example a com.example.hw.apk will make Hello World! 1.21.apk provided that the label inside the package was set to Hello World! and version is 1.21.

The old and the new apk files are 100% the same in terms of content and are lunchanged. Only the new copies are given new filenames. Input files are left completely intact.

You can find more information in the application thread.
