APK Downloader

August 29, 2013

This allows you do download any free APK from the Android Market/Play Store. Unlike the Chrome extension you do not need to install anything, provide your Google credentials or find your Android Device ID. This tool is as simple as it gets: enter the package name or paste in a play.google.com URL, hit enter and the download will begin.



Cerberus anti-theft – an exploit allowing you to access any device

August 16, 2013

You may or may not have heard of Cerberus, an anti-theft application for Android devices. Cerberus allows you to remotely control your device if it has been lost or stolen. Features include: locate and track your device, start alarms, get a list of recent calls, download SMS messages, take pictures, record video, record audio and much more – all of which is done discreetly without the “thief” knowing so you can track your phone down and attempt to recover it. Pretty cool, right? Now imagine if anyone could access your device. A security hole in Cerberus allows just that.

APIfy Endpoint Change

September 11, 2012

I’ve changed the endpoint URI for APIfy to http://apify.ifc0nfig.com/ and updated the documentation. The documentation is 100% dynamically driven, so as soon as a function has changed or a new feature has been added the documentation will automagically update. I’ll keep the old endpoint URI active until the end of the year.

ASDA (Walmart) API

July 19, 2012

After taking a look at the Tesco API, the only next logical step is uncovering the ASDA API. Unfortunately ASDA arn’t as open as Tesco as they don’t offer any public APIs that “anybody” can use. In this post we’ll take a look under the hood of the ASDA Android app to try and extract a usable API from it.
