For someone who reviews and tests mobiles like myself, one of the challenges of switching devices is that of having to install all your favourite apps on the new device. As a matter of fact, a significant chunk of your data plan can go into downloading your favourite apps from the Google Play Store during the installation process.
But then, if you are an Android fan, you don’t have to burn that much internet data to put your apps on your new device. Like we say, “There’s an app for that.”
The handy and nifty app, “App Backup And Restore” lets you backup your apps on one device and restore them on same device or another device (if an SD card is available).
For example, if you need to factory reset your device. You can backup your apps to an SD card. After the reset, you download only App Backup and Restore from Google Play Store and then restore your backed up apps from the memory card.
In the same way, you can backup apps from one device and restore on another.
I have found App backup And Restore a very handy and nifty tool in recent times. It has saved me data consumption and the trouble of manually hunting down and installing each of my favourite apps.
If you are a stickler for Android smartphones, be sure to give App Backup And Restore a look. It is available in the Play Store for free.
