    Default How do you transfer apps from old phone to a new phone

    How can you transfer all the apps you have on an old Droid to new Droid device so don't have to re-download all the apps again?

    Wanted to know how to do this before I upgrade from the D2 to the D3

    Thanks

    If you allow Google to backup your apps they will restore once you log in to the same google account
    with the new phone.

    As above....or if you're rooted use something like Super Manager or Titanium Backup to backup all your apk's to your SD card. Titanium Backup will also sync them to a Dropbox account.

    If you do use this method, Titanium will also if you ask it to, restore the market link for the apps you install as well so it will pick up updates etc

    Are you referring to the back up setting under the privacy option under settings or something else?
    That option mentions restore data, if it restores the apps as well that would be great.

    If you want transfer apps from D2 to the D3, you can do it withs Android Backup Manager export/import feature.
    Actually you can transfer contacts files from D2 to D3 directly.
    - Connect two Devices to PC.
    - Choose the category list of one device that you need to export files.
    - Check the files that need to export in the Content Panel and click "Transfer Apps from device to device" button.
    - All the checked files from one device can be transferred to the other one.
