I'm interested in a way to go from the package name (e.g. com.android.providers.telephony) to its common name (Phone).

I'd like to know if there's ADB/shell command (from the phone), or any system/preinstalled app.

I know that a bunch of apps reveal both once you could pin the app in it. – In Android 4.x (tried with 4.2.2) you can even use the system app manager to confirm the package name once you found and selected the app via the common name.

  • Robert, if you're still looking for this, my answer here might be interesting for you. In short: CM-based ROMS with Kitkat or later ship with aapt; and if yours does not, you can install it yourself (root required, though). Having that, a one-liner calling to ADB does the job for you. Details "over there" ;) – Izzy Jul 19 '15 at 1:25

If you haven't given up on Android apps yet, you can use Titanium Backup. It lets you search either by app name or package name.

  • is there a way to get it to show the package name for an app? – endolith Aug 23 '15 at 20:21
