  1. In as much as this is/was a good write up, I think it just backs up your installed apks, not really getting free space for the internal memory.

    On marshmallow, it's practically impossible, to move installed apps to from internal to external memory.

    So, in a nutshell, what this apk does, is just to create a backup of your installed apps.

  2. i just tried it…..but it dint work…..

    first the ExtractedApks file did no create even when i lumched the app…i have to do it manually…

    As i lunch the app and go on the extract,it just creates the apk file….and its even in the internal nemory….
