    you can download appmanager to backup apk files ... ?

    if you want to open an .apk file > on pc download winrar then you can open all apk files with winrar

    Tnx for replay.

    I am new to Android OS. Ok I know that apk file is something like zip. What happened when you run it, when you install it. Is it is extract? but where? You can find sys folder on your tattoo, and all of system applications are there, but where are 3rd party applications?

    thats hide on your phone you cant acces to that. but if you root ( jailbreake/hack) your phone you may acces to all thing in and on you phone but nobody has rooted this device YET.

    Why you need to know where the 3rd party apps are ?
