    I want to be able to copy Piterfm from my S2 onto my note 10.1 but unfortunatly this app is no longer on the play store and all links for the last 2.0.5 version do not exist it seems

    So how can this be done ?

    go into data/apps/ with a file explorer (ES File Explorer)and locate the package (probably begins with com.something.something copy this to a safe place and re install it on its new device.

    Thanks for info but this does'nt quite work with me. There are a number of com.xxx.xxx but not one for piterfm it seems

    There is a piterfm folder but this just has sub folders for cache and log ??

    If you have it installed it is under data/app or data/app private. If it is not there, you do not have it installed. Quite simple.

    Just look really closely at the icons. Its gotta be there disagree unless you installed it as a system app it would be in system/app but I can almost guarantee its not in there

    You can also find it under Play store > Apps > All. You will find it listed there. I installed one of my apps which is not available in the store by this method.
