A "non-techy way" would be, given the package_name, doing a web search on it. Chances are it's available on some store, which then would give you the developer's name. A different way is, as indicated by ottucsak's answer, extracting it from the certificate. The way to do that is described here, and basically involves the following steps: unpack the .apk ...

It isn't really is possible. However there is a workaround. If you have got the package name of the apk you can see the developer name. Something like this: com.<developer_name>.<app_name>. Example: com.google.drive. If you don't know the package name you need to extract the apk and then the package name is somewhere in the android-manifest file. ...

It will vary depending on your phone and version of android. But in Settings>Applications>Saavn you should find a Move to SD button which will move the app and its data to the SD card.

Go to the settings option in the play store and switch on the Auto-update apps over Wi-Fi only. :)

Yes, at the very least that will have to be done. You may also have to re-sign the apk, and also change any absolute references to the Application context inside the java code and/or machine code. This will require lots of effort, you might as well build your own Messenger interface via Facebook's API. Facebook does have a developer API for this kind of ...

In general, yes. The content you purchased via an in-app-purchase will persist between installs (and even across devices). The purchase is tied to the account and will usually be restored upon installing the app again. There may be rare cases, where the developer has not done this; but for the most part they do.

I stumbled upon this app called Permission Remover that allows you to remove permissions from the APK package before installing it. Worked for both installed and downloaded APKs. This method is convenient as it does not require you to root your device.

According to Sony's Xperia E1 specifications page, you're running Android 4.4, KitKat. As mentioned in numerous SE articles, KitKat does not allow the SD card to be used for app storage, including transferring apps to it.

No, there's no setting to fully close an application when you press the home. It depends on how the program is built. Some stay running, some stay in memory but are inactive (not eating CPU but wasting memory in case you restart the program), and some just close as desired. Additionally, there are plenty of Samsung or carrier applications that run in the ...

No, you can't downgrade the app. The installation will fail (with error code [INSTALL_FAILED_VERSION_DOWNGRADE] if installed from ADB). Normally, you need to uninstall the app/updates, then install the specific version from the APK, but doing this will also clear the data. There are alternatives to prevent that: If you're using ADB, you can use adb ...

The reason for the trouble is you've replaced the existing SD card without having copied the data. With apps installed on the (original) SD card, those are naturally "gone" as soon as you've popped it out – and did not "magically transfer" to the new card. What you'd have to do is to first copy everything from the original card to the new one – including ...
