Hi!
Could you tell me the best protection tool for my sources?
I tried the following:
dexprotector com
appwatermark com

The first one is very expensive and hard to understand.
The second one is one-click tool and got free plan. But it frighten.

I need your suggestions.

Maybe the easy way is to take advantage of the Code Obfuscation feature of Android Studio. (smug)

An ad-free & full-free app available on Google Play - https://goo.gl/ws42fN

I mean that we can take advantage the Android Studio built-in function, ProGuard. It's so easy to use.

Hello.
But obfuscation is not true protection. It's just tangle a code.
From the other side - these 2 services offer much more than just obfuscation.
BTW, I did try one of them - appwatermark, because it's free )
And I like it.
I've submit my apk, protect it.
When sign it by my key.
After that I decompile it with apktools and build again.
Tried to run my application - and it failed.
So, it seems protection works.
