ApkTool is a command line application that can be used to change the composition of APK files. It is intended for Android programmers of the "old school", who are used to using the console, not the graphic shell. To work with the application you need at least basic knowledge of SDK, PATH, aapt and smali. Even running an application is unlikely to be possible for a normal user.

So, using this tool you can modify Android-applications, change scripts, add new functionality and localization. The ApkTool developers kindly provide detailed documentation on the application's operation (in English) and strongly recommend using it only for "legal" modification. However, changing the composition of the APK downloaded from Play Market and its further distribution, in fact, already violates the license of Google. So use the program only at your own risk.

ApkTool simplifies the modification of APK files by allowing detailed changes to scripts, functionalities, and localization within Android applications.

The application allows you to extract any resources from the APK, and can also optimize some of the repetitive tasks associated with editing the contents of the package. Unfortunately, the possibility of "opening" the framework-res.apk application is not provided for. This is about special protection from Google. In the future, developers are going to "beat" this protection, so keep an eye on the release of new versions.

Note that ApkTool will not work without Java SE Runtime Environment installed. By the way, being a Java-application, it will run on all popular desktop operating systems. Naturally, the applications are completely free and have open source code.

- the lack of a graphic shell;

- extraction of resources and modification of APK contents;

- Smali dumping;

- possibility of changing scripts, adding new locations and functions;

- launch on all popular desktop operating systems (Java-application);

- availability of a BAT-file for convenient launch on Windows;

- decoding resources close to the original (including resources.arsc, XMLs and 9.png files).

Supports extensive customizations with an easy-to-use interface.
Completely free and open-source, promoting transparency and trust.

Requires advanced technical knowledge to utilize efficiently.
Limited customer support and documentation.
Occasional bugs and instability issues.

APKTool is an open-source tool for reverse engineering Android applications (APKs). It can decode resources to nearly original form and rebuild them after making some modifications. It also makes working with an app easier because of the project like file structure and automation of some repetitive tasks like building apk, etc.

ApkTool is a great software for reverse engineering Android apps. It has an intuitive and simple user interface which makes it easy to understand and use. I have used the software multiple times to decompile and compile APKs. It is very fast and easy to use. It can also be used to modify the code and resources of an Android application. The software can be used to add or remove features, change the look and feel of the application, or even to modify the application's permissions. Overall, it is a great tool for reverse engineering Android apps.
