Android files user-interactive analysis


I wonder if anyone is willing to share some experiences regarding how to analyse apk files with atd. I am new to the product, but have a system set up and is currently spending my time analysing random apk files that I download from the Internet.

Here are some reflections so far:

  • It seems that most files requires me to run in user-interactive mode to have a reliable result.
  • Running one file without interactive mode gives me a low threat level, while running the same file interactive and just seing the screen, not being able to do anything gives me a very high threat level
  • Some files that I upload are not analyzed by dynamic analysis (sandbox) even if they are not known. They seem to be analyzed when running interactive though.

Ideally I would like to be able to run tons of apk filen through this ATD, but if I will have to run all of them through user-interactiv analysis it will take to much time.

Any suggestions?

I am running on the following platform:
