I've installed a malicious app that is posting ads over my notification bar, but can't find it. I know the java package name for it: com.letang.game103.en using the command: adb shell dumpsys notification.

As you see the name of the app is not obvious from the package name. I want to find which app it is, that uses this package name. I also want to report them to Android Market, after leaving a nice feedback for them there!

I've looked at different dumpsys commands:

adb shell dumpsys [something]

But so far wasn't able to get apps based on their package names. Is there any way to do this?

I have the very same question (from package name to common name), but your accepted answer doesn’t help me... :-( –  Robert Siemer Aug 10 '13 at 5:07

The easiest way, without using any specialised tools is just to visit that app's page in the Android Market.

All apps in the Market have their package name as part of their URL, so you can just take your package name and prefix it with https://market.android.com/details?id= to get

https://market.android.com/details?id=com.letang.game103.en

Which will take you to the page for King Fighter Ⅱ by LeTang, Inc.

Doesn’t help me finding the common name of "com.android.providers.telephony”. –  Robert Siemer Aug 10 '13 at 4:42
