    I have a Droid Continuum and I am wondering where the apps are stored that I download from the marketplace.

    I checked the downloads folder in my SD card but nothing is there. It is obviously somewhere in the internal files of the phone. But where exactly are the downloaded apps stored?
    I checked the /data folder and i found nothing there...so it must be somewhere else..

    If anyone has the answer, it'd be great...I found the system apps, just not the downloaded ones.

    Thanks in advance!

    They are "installed" in the /data/app folder ... some in the /data/app-private folder. And associated data for each app is stored in the /data/data folder.

    yeah apps are stored in the /data/app folder as well as the /system/app folder. Depends on what you are looking for. Most apps are in the /system/app folder. Live wallpapers and such usually appear in the /data/app folder.

    If I delete the file in the data/app folder, will the app still work?
    Thanks
