Java Question

Where is APK java file?

I have recently become interested in changing an APK files extension to .ZIP. I began looking through them. I noticed that there were no .java or .class files. I do have hidden files enabled, so it cant be that. I am wondering:

How does the app function if the java is not there?File contents of the apk/zip

The zip file can be downloaded from here. (It's down right now. My dad is doing work with our WiFi.

(If the file is not there then I probably took it down. A few days or weeks, maybe months has probably passed)

Answer Source

Android programs are compiled into .dex (Dalvik Executable) files. File classes.dex contains app code.
