Well if you google "editing apk" there are lots of results which will help.
If you download 7-zip then you can open the apk in that and see the individual files inside the apk.

Thanks man. I used google before I made the topic, butt all I could find was websites that wanted money for a program that magically could read any type of format, but didn't trust anything I found. I used 7zip as you recommended, now I have to find ways to open the other odd files inside the folder. Such as, .dex .arsc and xml. Thanks for the help, plus rep.

Change the file extension from ".apk" to ".zip" and just extract it. An apk file is just a compressed zip file with a different extension.

I have solved this problem. Just need to know how to open an XML document. Every program I have tried so far won't open it.

You can open XML in notepad.

I tried that. But I'm guessing it's coded? When I open it up in notepad, I it's nothing but symbols, and I get an error message when using an XML program. If it helps, it's an app from Android that I am wanting to look into.

Oh I think that their probably encrypted then, I'm not sure how you would go about decrypting them though.

what app are you trying to edit cause i can guarantee you that any XML file on anything android related isnt encrypted
and if you have to you can decompile the apk using apktools, edit what you have to, than resign and recompile the apk file
