Cheat Droid is a developer’s tool. You are a developer and want to debug the shared preferences of your apps and games? You care about data privacy and want to see, what apps save which information about you? You forgot your password in your own app or game and try to recover it? You are simply some sort of “hacker” and simply technically interested?
Then give Cheat Droid – Shared Preferences Editor a try! Shared Preferences are the most common way for Android apps and games to store settings or information inside your phone data. For example, a puzzle game might store the current level inside this file. Or other games might store your money, gold count, highscore or whatever in it. Apps might track, how many times you started them. Or when was the last time.
However, please note the disclaimer below. Cheat Droid is rather adapted for technical, scientifical and debugging reasons.
★ view, edit, add, search through and delete shared preferences
★ export and import preference files
★ browse through sqlite database files
★ export and import any other application files (CheatDroid ★ PRO only)
★ edit sqlite database files (CheatDroid ★ PRO only)
What is Root and why won’t CheatDroid work without it?
Basically, Root access provides your Android smartphone with admin privileges (including editing system files like CheatDroid does). Therefore, you need a Rooted phone for CheatDroid.
For some apps I do not find a lot of Shared Preferences to edit, why?
Since no developer is forced to USE Shared Preferences, those apps might use another way to store their settings. CheatDroid does not work everywhere.
