Analysing Android files
In this post I'll simply be listing several tools to analyse (malicious) Android files.
All tools or scanners listed are free to use.
Someone commented how to be able to analyze files from the Google Play store without actually installing/downloading them directly to your phone (or, for example, you don't use Android).
Therefore, you can use APK Downloader. It will fetch the APK for you - you'll then be able to analyze or scan it without the need to install. An alternative is APK Pure.
If you have knowledge of more free tools or scanners for Android files (.apk), then feel free to comment and I'll add them.
