The description of Cheat Droid PRO
IMPORTANT: ROOT ACCESS NEEDED! (READ BELOW.) THIS APP WILL NOT WORK ON UNROOTED DEVICES.
Cheat Droid is a developer's tool. Do you want to debug your self-developed apps or try to hack your games in order to find security vulnerabilities? Do you care about data privacy and want to find out which apps store which information about you? Did you forget your password in your own app or game and try to recover it? Or are you just 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. Other games might store your highscore, amount of coins, gold count or whatever in it.
However, please note the disclaimer below. Cheat Droid was only created for technical, scientifical and debugging reasons. It is not intended to be used in order to illegally cheat in games or hack other apps. You may only use it on apps you developed on your own or with the author's consent.

FRQEUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
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.
How do I get my phone rooted?
Check out the internet, you will definitely find enough material. For instance, you could google "Rooting [your phone name+model]". Also, you might want to try out one of these links:
Cheat Droid needs root access - accordingly, every use of it can also negatively affect the functionality of other apps or even of the whole system! Do only use if you really know what you are doing. I do not assume any liability if you mess up your device or the functionality of other apps. Think of exporting and creating backups of those shared preferences files you might want to edit. If an app does not work properly anymore, you can try clearing its data.
