This app extracts APK files that are only allowed to be accessed by the system through the official public api and therefore does not require root permission. However, always make sure that you comply with the license agreement of the app before you try to share app and install APK on another device!
If you want to install the shared APK on some other device, this device has to enable installation from unknown sources - see https://developer.android.com/distribute/marketing-tools/alternative-distribution.html#unknown-sources
This app does not require permission to write to sdcard, but you still have to make sure that you have enough free space in your internal storage before trying to extract and share an APK file.
