If there's one thing that scares you even more than a girlfriend rummaging through your smartphone, it's the loss of all your apps and data.
Of course, you are careful and you want to know how to back up your Android apps before it is too late. With App Backup, you can simply back up and restore your entire list of apps.
The Google Play Store offers a similar option, but terribly less efficient (in the sense that it decides whether or not it works depending on the type of phone, the time of day, and the alignment of the planets).
Fortunately, this defect is compensated for by tools such as App Backup offering much the same service. The advantage of App Backup & Restore over the Play Store restore service (besides the fact that it always works) is that even applications installed from a source other than the Play Store will be backed up and restored.
Back up and restore your apps on Android
Here I will show you how to backup all apps from one phone and restore them to another.
First of all, you need to insert your MicrosD card into your mobile. Next download and launch the Backup & restore app to display the list of applications installed on the device. Select them all using the button at the bottom right, and press save. The operation may take a few minutes.
Now insert the Micro-sD card into another Android phone, and while waiting for it to be detected, go to settings> security and tick allow installation from unknown sources. once the card is detected, download and launch the Backup & restore app. This will offer you to move the archived apps to the backup directory, accept.
Now go to the archived tab where you will find all the applications of your old phone. once again, select them all, and tap the restore button. the applications will then be installed one by one, and for each of them you will need to press install, then ok. a bit laborious, but less than if you had to do everything manually.
