    Published: 2015-10-01, by .

    A development app for tinkering with your Android operating system code

    • Great for developers
    • Performs well
    • Better manage your device
    • Only for those in the know
    • Busy interface

    "Get To The Root Of The Matter"


    If you are someone who enjoys getting a bird's-eye view into the inner workings of your devices, then you need BusyBox. This app allows you to dig into the code that makes up your Android operating system, which itself is based off of Unix. Feeling geeky? Download BusyBox for a look at the inner workings.


    If you are a consumer with a rooted device, BusyBox is a must-have. The app performs well and executes its functions relatively flawlessly. Being able to better manage what your Android device does is a huge plus.


    This app is mainly for developers and Android programmers. There can be a lot going on in the interface, okay for developers, but hard to wade through for the untrained eye.

    BusyBox is a software application that provides many standard Unix tools, much like the larger (but more capable) GNU Core Utilities. BusyBox is designed to be a small executable for use with the Linux kernel, which makes it ideal for use with embedded devices. It has been self-dubbed "The Swiss Army Knife of Embedded Linux".

    Leave this installed if you always want to get the latest version of busybox!
