    Just curious to know where apps store their settings/data, and how can I edit them?

    Edit how? As where they save their data at?
    Unless the app has a setting to change location, I'm not sure how you can.

    Some of the settings may be stored on the SD card, and sometimes it's stored in the allocated memory block of internal memory. Not sure you will be able to edit the settings of the files. I guess it might be possible if it's rooted, or it's stored on the SD card.

    I'm talking about the settings stored on the internal memory. But I don't know where it's stored. It is 100% possible to change the settings if your rooted, and I am rooted.
    So does anyone know where it's stored?
