As the suffix (-bin) implies - this is the end binary (compiled by the author of the tool), while the 'android-apktool' package downloads the source and compiles it on your box. This packages is just a 'shortcut' if you don't want to spend time and resources installing the necessary dev packages and then compiling it locally. Or you have a low end box and just takes forever to build :) If in doubt - prefer building from source. Cheers

What is the difference between this and android-apktool?

A note for jnbrains or me in case apktool gets updated - change the arch to just any to comply with AUR packaging guidelines. Since it does not contain any ELF files, the only requirement is the JRE. I forgot to do that when changing the license identifier. Also, it will be cleaner to use $_pkgname in provides and conflicts.
