    Hi guys. I know Titanium can be used to backup and transfer apk files, but thats a little long winded.

    I want a faster way where I simply locate the apk in a file explorer app and then copy/paste it to another device.

    But the question is, I've been searching everywhere, I can't find the location of my installed apks. Does anyone know where to look for them in a regular file explorer?

    PS: I have root.

    Probably the same way you did it when you created this post.

    I really hope you aren't doing this to pirate apps, and you have a legit need to do so. Because if these are apps you got from the Play Store, just download them again on the other device.

    Well Airdroid works....but I still feel I'm missing something. I'm sure it's in there somewhere in the file manager.

    Nope, not for pirating reasons whatsoever. Don't see how this can facilitate in doing that.

    I just use the Backup function in Astro File Manager and email 'em to myself, then install from the other device. Had to do that with some apps that I had one my phone, but were listed as "incompatible" on the Nexus 7, all legitimate stuff that I own and paid for. Haven't had any issues with any of the "incompatible" apps yet, mostly Audubon apps in my case.

    Navigate to the root directory of your nexus then go in to data then app and all your apks are there. If you are familiar with adb you can also use adb pull from this directory.
