    Hi guys. I'd like to know, is it possible to extract the APKs of apps on my device? If yes, how do I go about doing it?

    I have an Unrooted Tab 10.1 btw.

    Thanks!

    Try ES File Explorer (or any good file explorer) and go to data/app(for downloaded apks) and system/app (for system apps) and copy the desired apk and then paste it to your sdcard.

    Not sure how well it will work without root, but give it a shot.

    Probably to keep the average user from getting into files they don't need to be in.

    Wow actually I was downloading some apps and trying them out. I downloaded a File Explorer but to no avail. Anyways, I found a solution - Airdroid! There's an option to download APKs, and its supreamly fast even though it's on WiFi. My usual and max WiFi speed is 500-700kbps. But this one was working at 5mbps. Any idea how come?

    Not a clue why it was so fast, but I'm glad you found a solution. I tried Airdroid a few weeks back and really like it.
