What is an APK file?

APK file is a software package specially designed for Android.

Many of us may not know where the Android system came from.

Android is actually an operating system designed by Google for smartphones, which is used by most of the big phone companies (because Google related apps like Hangout, Gmail, Google Map, etc. by default) 

It is installed on all Android phones.

The APK is designed to only run on the Google Android OS.

As a result, don't expect to run Android apps on the iPhone and iOS platforms.

An APK file is actually a package that contains all the information, code, source, and summary of everything the program needs to install and run, all in this APK.

Of course, some of the big games and software require data, which I recommend you read this one 

 The article is for more familiarity with APK files. (What is an APK file?)


How is APK file content displayed?

As we said, the APK file is a package that includes various icons, resources, licenses, etc.

From this it can roughly be concluded that an APK file is just a place to compile and execute files.

As a result, the APK file looks like a zip file.

APK files are structurally similar to JAR (Java Archive), and both are in ZIP format.

The interesting result is that with programs like WinRAR , you can access the contents of any APK file.

For example, we want access to Chess APK content for Android.

This file does not work normally in Windows and is as follows:

Now to access its content, you only need to enter the phrase name .zip at the end.

To do this, right-click on this file and click Rename.

At this point you may encounter the rename warning, in which case click Yes.

(In fact, this warning tells you that doing so will change the file's format, which is exactly what we want in this tutorial)

Convert the file to a zip


This requires that WinRAR or similar software be installed on your system.

Then click on the new created file to open it.

Here you can access all files included in the APK package.

Of course, there are a number of special programs for this, but the easiest way to view APK content is this one.
