You can keep track of what api other apps are targeting as well using this app.
Let's see a pic of all your apps that don't target API 28 yet!
Edit: Use this app to view your apps target SDK version.
If you're interested in helping this get changed, and see what apps do not target M and thus definitely do not support backup, see this app:
Very good for checking the api levels of all apps installed.
Now do everyone a favor and give them the shitty ratings they deserve for not updating.
I had one dev fucking tell me, not long ago, that he won't target M until more people use it. Except it's not much he even has to change, he's just lazy. And here we are, with N coming out in the next few weeks.
Application cache files are typically stored in your storage/Android/data folder. You'll need to know the app's full package name, which you can find out using AppChecker or searching for app in the Play Store and clicking share and copying it to the clipboard and checking the name at the end (or visit play.google.com in a web browser). Once you find out the package name, you need to find out where the ads are stored. If you're lucky, they might be stored in a "cache" folder and it's obvious what those files are.
To give you an example, for the game Eternium, it's located in storage/Android/data/com.makingfun.mageandminions/cache/UnityAdsCache
Yeah, Pixel 3. I'm assuming it's the scoped storage introduced in Android 10/API 29, and Brave still targets Pie/API 28
Edit: I'm basing that on this app called AppChecker
The apps have to target Android 10 or above to record audio with the native video recorder in Stock Android (but you're on a beta, so who knows what bugs are abound). You can use Appchecker to see which version your installed apps use.
Unless you root, you're not gonna find a third party recorder that can record sound, Google has locked this up tight while still not offering a worthwhile solution. This is why OnePlus, Samsung, and other OEMs have created their own recorders that work with inline sound on their devices. In Samsung's case, they created an entirely new audio engine to work around Google's bullshit. Not sure what tricks OnePlus is using.
If you really want to record with inline sound, Pixel was the wrong way to go. Should have picked up a Samsung. Now your best bet is purchasing an external recorder, and if you wanna capture native res at high framerates, it's gonna cost. Problem is, this is still the best way to go because internal recorders, especially when recording sound and video, take up a lot of resources, resources that are required for demanding apps and games, so there are diminishing returns when using native recorders that will display as frameskips, which in turn makes your content look bad or simply reflects poorly on the app/game when it shouldn't.
I use an app called AppChecker - List APIs of Apps comes in pretty handy when I want to know which apps are eating up my battery because they're targeting older API levels.
A very important note OP left out in case you want to do it his way and aren't tech savvy enough to do it the adb way
OP's method only applies to apps that target Oreo and above. Not all apps do this yet, so you won't see the option to "show silently" for apps that don't yet target Oreo. Thankfully by the end of this year, all apps must target Oreo if they want to be approved for Play Store updates.
If you want to know which apps you have that target at least Oreo (API 26), use AppChecker: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.kroegerama.appchecker
Apps that target Nougat (SDK 24/25) can't have HTTPS filtered unless the cert is in the System store, which yes, requires root, or unless the app developer specifically specifies to trust user certificates.
You can use this app to see what version apps target:
This app does it indirectly https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.kroegerama.appchecker
Apps that haven't been updated for a while are compiled with older versions of Android. So if you see an app compiled with anything below Oreo chances are it's been years since the last update. Also Google now forces developers to use newer compile versions if they want to submit updates. So most regularly maintained apps should not be more than 2 versions behind.
Use titanium backup. There are few apps that actually target api 23, and even then the dev can opt out of the new auto backup. Down load app checker and you can see how few apps are even targeting the new marshmallow api.
Sorry I have no idea how to link properly and this is a very obscure (like 500 downloads) but useful app. I actually left it on my screen just as a shortcut to the app info page.
There is another possible explanation.
Maybe you have Pixel 7 (or Pixel 7 pro) ? This device is 64bit-only device, so 32bit apps can't be installed on it.
You can check if this app is 32bit or 64bit using this app (sort by architecture) :
That's very true.
Can you please give me an example of the oldest app that you have? I want to see if I can find it on the Play Store.
You can sort by targetSdkVersion (to see which might be the oldest) using this app:
You could try checking what Appchecker says. Simply sort by architecture. It should show 32 for apps which are 32-bit and 64 for 64-bit compatible apps.
You can download app checker to check what apps you have that are targeting specific versions. Right now I have: (other than the Google apps)
>I could, but I won't downgrade to Android 10 just for this.
I meant, use a file manager that is still targetting to Android 10. Apps developers can target whatever version they want. That's to say use a file manager that is still working.
You don't have to downgrade the OS to do this. Use a file manager that is still targetting to Android 10. You can use an app called AppCheker to know the target versions for any app.
If you use AppChecker (Play Store link), it will say what installed apps are 32 bit and what apps are 64 bit.
The only 2 notable app I had installed that were 32 bit only were PCMark and the Pebble app. I am assuming that PCMark will be updated to 64 bits because it is a significant benchmark app, but the Pebble app is discontinued and not getting updated anymore.
Fair but seeing as Personal Safety exists from Google and has the same features of Trusted Contacts in the recent Pixel Drop, it's probably only a matter of time in this case. Authenticator made more sense to bring back from the dead with no other Google alternative.
And yeah, this app shows 64/32 bit support and all of the 32 bit apps on my device are Google apps. Accessibility Suite, Android System Webview, Carrier Provisioning Service, Chrome Canary, Play Movies & TV, and Play Store. It's very ironic.
Everytime an app updates you might have it supporting higher APIs. This leads to better battery usage of the apps. I had a few apps before Nougat was released jump from Marshmallow to Nougat API levels. This is very good for battery life as they introduced even more background restrictions for this API level. A little offtopic, but I use this app to see what level APIs apps are using. If anything, I tend to remove apps targeting lower APIs and just use their mobile interface figuring their app development is too far behind. https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.kroegerama.appchecker
Just checked with App Checker. Going to be a lot of never update apps I think.
Install this app
The policy change won't affect you as a user, but it will affect developers.
Use this app to check target API:
This app is good to see what apps you have. Have been updated to nougat api https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.kroegerama.appchecker
You can use this app
Not OP, but AppChecker. It's a great app.
I check them in Appchecker
Apps Like this one do it.
AppChecker is usually what I see recommended.
Try this. Should tell you if your downloaded apps are out of date.
You can use AppChecker to determine that.
According to another thread "AppChecker" on the play store will let you see which apps are 64 vs 32 bit https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.kroegerama.appchecker
AppChecker on Google Play lets you easily filter your installed apps by whether they support 32/64-bit ABIs.
Most? I have a fair number of apps on my device and exactly one is 32 bit.
Appchecker - https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.kroegerama.appchecker Shows the API version of installed apps
34% of my installed apps doesn't have Android 11 api. Tested with this app - https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.kroegerama.appchecker
Use this app. It shows you what every installed app on your phone targets.
It has nothing to do with it.
Apps can support it without targeting Android 29. It started a long time ago, ever since the nav bar could be transparent, then continued to notch (cutout) support, and now again with gesture navigation... Developers don't handle it much, maybe because it doesn't bother most users, and it's a bit annoying to handle it.
But, if you insist on checking target API for all apps, you can try :
https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=sk.styk.martin.apkanalyzer&hl=en (doesn't show API 29 currently, maybe in next update)
I use this app 'appchecker'
what app are you using to tell?
NVM, found it
Most apps on my device are
Oreo > Pie > Nougat > Others
There might be the data somewhere else but i use this app.
I recommend downloading this app, very light and does what you want!
Yup, I recommend using API checker:

I'll try and list some stuff that came out in 2015.
