APK Multi-Tool

Welcome to the NEW APK Multi-Tool Website

After almost a week working on making a new theme and getting the new website setup and planned out I finally was able to push out the new look and new everything.


Here are some screenshots of the old website for all who are new to APK Multi-Tool.

Old Main Page
Old Info Page
Old Downloads Page

From the screenshots you can see that the website has gone through a completely new look and feel and a bunch of new features and a more cleaner look.

The next few Weeks I will be working on adding in new stuff and fixing any issues that may arise.


I am moving away from Drupal to a more stable and better, cleaner, modern style website with less security issues and have more design freedom and easier interface and will allow me to add more feature quicker and always updated without having to manually check all the time…

I have plans to go with WordPress PRO Yea i know I am going a paid rout with this but it will be more secure then what I have had to deal with the in the past….

Latest Lollpop support has been added to both the window and linux version

On the Windows 2.0 WIP branch I have added the latest patches and support for the Lollypop Android Versions.

On the Master branch of the Linux version I have also added support for Lollypop Android versions

in the download section you will see two different links to download the latest builds one is a AdF.ly link and a Normal Link.

Help support the website by using the ADF.ly links which every click will  help support the site with a small advertisement. to get the download just click on the SKIP AD button in the upper right corner which will appear after 5 seconds and to further help please have any ad blocker turned off on the website.

 I have not received any donations in over a year and i have noticed that on a average i am getting between 300-1000 downloads of my application daily and it is hard work and cost money to run a website and also I am unemployed because of a disability and have zero income right now as my disability case is still in limbo and working on a lawyer to get it. I have been unemployed for over a year now and my wife is working three jobs and we are getting behind in the bills and rent because i am unable to work so any support is welcome specially with a wife and 2 kids a 2 year old and a  year old.
Remember the website is at


For thiughs who do not know

For though who do not know I have been on medical leave on short term disability which means my paychecks have been cut in half due to a spinal injury which I go seen the spinal surgeon august 6th. I been out on medical leave since the last week of may. On top of this my wife’s mother passed away June 17th. She did not have life insurance so me and my wife have to pay out of pocket and some how have to come up with 4 grand plus car payment and utilities by the end of this month which two grand of this is so we can pay so we can claim her ashes. Plus I lost my other two jobs because I can’t work or else  I would not be worried but because my main job pay is only half of what it is normally and the income of the other two jibs are completely gone that leaves my wife’s income which is only around 800-900a month I was bringing in around the same thing with all my jobs because my main job was where my health insurance came out which is 1200 a month for me my wife and son and my mother n law was paying 900 a month as well but now her passing away we are trying to disperly get by until I can go back to work. It would not so bad if we did not have to pay the 2 grand to pay for the funeral but because of that we are at a loss to what to do.
