Tools: Static Code Analysis for Smali

Dynamic program analysis will give you a pretty good overview of your applications activities and general behaviour. However sometimes you'll want to just analyze your application without running it. You'll want to have a look at its components, analyze how they interact and how data is tainted from one point to another. This is was the major factor driving the development of smalisca. There are indeed some good reasons for a static code analysis before the dynamic one. Before interacting with the application I like to know how the application has been build, if there is any API and generate all sort of call flow graphs. In fact graphs have been very important to me since they visualize things. Instead of jumping from file to file, from class to class, I just look at the graphs.
While graph building has been an important reason for me to code such a tool, smalisca has some other neat features you should read about.
