I am using Android 4.0.3 and I can no longer find package name for some app. If I recall, I used to go to Applications and has been able to see it there.

So, how can I see full package name of some app? Like, the app's name is "Test" and I need to see its package com.test.mytest.

The accepted answer on this question (which has the opposite problem: finding the app name when you know the package name) suggests simply looking it up on Google Play website. The package name will be right there in the URL. –  Al E. Sep 4 '12 at 15:09
    
@AlEverett I need to know how to view it on my mobile, without play store. –  AnDroDroo Sep 4 '12 at 15:12
    
Sounds like a similar question as How to get application id of an installed application? –  eldarerathis Sep 4 '12 at 15:23
    
@AnDroDroo You might want to "accept" your answer ;) –  Izzy Sep 4 '12 at 15:39
    
@eldarerathis Yes, it seems android os does not allow package display and we have to use a separate app –  AnDroDroo Sep 4 '12 at 15:39

I installed an app called Android System Info which is able to show app's package name.

This app is buggy in so far: I clicked on “Manage” for Phone/Messaging Storage” and it gave me the “manager” for “Phone” instead. –  Robert Siemer Aug 10 '13 at 5:05

If you are proficient at using adb and Linux you can find it pretty quick using the linux command grep.

Just do:

adb shell
ls -al /data/data/ | grep 'yourAppName'

You need root of course to be able to search in /data/data/
