Usually, Android apps are installed in:

Internal shared storage/Android/​data/​app/​com.example.MyApp/​

However, I've been looking for a while but can't find where CapCut (the video editing app) is installed. Anyone know where CapCut is installed or how I can find its installation directory?

    Sorry but you are totally wrong. Apps are never installed to the internal shared storage ( better known as /sdcard or /storage/emulated/0). Apps are installed to /data/apps. See also android.stackexchange.com/a/159070/2241 how to get the install path of an app.

Apps on the internal storage are stored under /data/app/. Apps on external storage are stored as .asec files under the .android_secure folder. System apps are stored under /system/app/. The asec files are mounted under /mnt/asec but it may all vary a tiny bit depending on the version. Try looking in each of these folders.

  • Do I need root access to view /data/app/? Because I'm not seeing it from my phone.
