Hi,
This method doesn't seem to work in marshmallow. I just see an empty screen. The permissions were granted to the Apk Tool to access files :(

Have a look at App Cloner. It's very easy to use, basically you just have to press a button to clone an app. No root required. Works on Marshmallow also. See https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.applisto.appcloner
