  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? – cavpollo Jul 1 '16 at 3:27

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.
