Supercharge Your Android App Management

We’re all power users here. And because of this, we probably have many tens, if not hundreds, of apps installed on our devices. Be it apps to let us better keep track of our hardware stats or a benchmarks or even something for a little entertainment while taking some time off, there are nearly countless numbers of apps for any purpose—and there’s a good chance that we will want to try them all.

So how do we more easily search for, manage, and uninstall all of our apps? XDA Forum Member AndroidDeveloperLB offers up a solution with his aptly titled App Manager. This app acts as a replacement to the standard Android app manager. It offers essentially all of the functionality of the original, but with a few added tricks. For starters, it has an excellent search feature to allow you to more easily find the applications you’re looking to uninstall or share. Next, you can use the app to share apps via Play Store or Amazon links or directly by sending an APK—though the latter should never be used on paid apps. With this app, you can even uninstall system apps if you grant it root access.

If you’ve been looking for a more powerful App Manager, head over to the application thread and give this one a shot.
