Developer World is Sony’s main hub for Android™ developers, and in addition to handy tutorials and the latest technical news, don’t forget that we also have valuable developer tools to help you in many stages of app development, whether you’re working on a Sony tablet, smartphone, or a mobile accessory. The BacklogTool, ChkBugReport, and XAppDbg are also open sourced, so you can modify these tools to suit your own development needs. Read further to get a quick summary of some of the tools available.
The latest version of AppXplore – version 2.5 – is now available for download on Google Play. AppXplore is a free analysis tool that lists all the apps on your Android device, and gives you detailed information for each, including permissions used, Android™ versions supported, libraries shared, and much more. AppXplore is especially useful for seeing how much memory an app is using, and if the file is movable to the SD card. Likewise, developers can use AppXplore for QA purposes, to make sure their apps are showing the proper permissions in the manifest file. Read on to learn more about the latest features of AppXplore 2.5.
Do you know about the AppXplore analysis tool? It’s a little handy app we originally created for internal purposes within Sony. But then we thought, why not make this available to everyone? So we did just that. AppXplore will give you all the nitty gritty information about the apps installed on your phone – what permissions your apps are using, what Android™ versions are supported, what libraries the apps are sharing and so on. And now we have updated this app with some new features!
