I have a unrooted nexus 5 and i want to analyze google play downloaded app source code but i cannot find any of my apps when i connect my phone to the computer... any one know how can i:

  1. Save google play app without extracting the apk file...

  2. finding the app when connecting in to computer.

  3. check the app source code in the computer

the app: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.ignite.lottosheli

  • Just out of curiosity, why do you want to look at the source code of a lottery app?

Achieving your request ("check the app source code") is simply not possible since an APK doesn't contains any source code, only Java bytecode and/or native compiled code for different processors architectures.
