List of installed applications

To get the list of the apps installed on the device:

List<Application> apps = await DeviceApps.getInstalledApplications();

You can filter system apps if necessary. Note: The list of apps is not ordered!

Get an application

To get a specific app by package name:

Application app = await DeviceApps.getApp('');

Check if an application is installed

bool isInstalled = await DeviceApps.isAppInstalled('');
