To get a list of all apps installed on the device:
// App is a custom class created by the plugin and it contains // packageName, versionName, decodedIcon, installDate and lastUpdateDate. // this method takes three parameters: // bool includeSystemApps => default value is false // bool onlyIncludeAppsWithLaunchIntent => default value is true // bool includeAppIcon => default value is false // To show the app icon set includeAppIcon to true and use Image.network(decodedIcon). ApkScouter apkScouter = ApkScouter(); List<App> apps = await apkScouter.getInstalledApps();
// Result retrieved from this method call tells you where the app was launched. ApkController apkController = ApkController(); String launchResult = await apkController.launchApp("packageName");
ApkController apkController = ApkController(); await apkController.uninstallApp("packageName");
To make an apk backup of an app by its packageName:
// if the WRITE_EXTERNAL_PERMISSION is not granted // the method will ask the user for his permission automatically. // Result retrieved from this method call tells you whether the backup process // completed successfully, failed or the WRITE_EXTERNAL_PERMISSION is required // and method should be called again after the permission is granted. ApkBackup apkBackup = ApkBackup(); String backupResult = await apkBackup.backupApp("packageName");
To get a list of all stored backups on the device:
// All backups gets stored in your app file directory // under a sub directory called "backups" // for example if your app package name is com.example.name them backups will be // stored under /storage/emulated/0/Android/data/com.example.name/files/backups . ApkScouter apkScouter = ApkScouter(); Map<String, String> backups = await apkScouter.getBackups();
restore app from backup
// You can get apkPath from the map retrieved by calling getBackups method. ApkBackup apkBackup = ApkBackup(); await apkAdmin.restoreAppFromBackup("apkPath");
