    Does anyone know if it's possible to turn an app downloaded from the market into an apk file? I have an app on my phone that I haven't updated. There are some changes in the new version I really dislike so I don't want to update. If I ever need to reinstall the app, I can't download the older version from the market, so I'd like to have an apk file of the old version. My phone is rooted if that helps.

    If you have MyBackup Pro you can back up apps with that and save them as apk`s

    You can also use ES File Explorer free from the market to backup your apps so you can reinstall as and when you want.

    Astro also works. With any of the suggestions, I believe you cannot do this with system apps though unless you are rooted. Please correct me if I'm wrong on that.

    search the app apk with google(include the version you want) and then save it to your sd card
     
  7. Also AppSaver converts to .apk files.
