    I just got my new M8 in the mail today and have two concerns:

    1) How to transfer all my basic data over (although I do use Exchange)
    2) Transferring Apps and App Data

    I know HTC has a wireless-transfer-tool.

    Has anyone used it and what was your experience?

    Google will transfer the settings of your phone?? I had no idea...
    How does that work?

    Also, I was under the impression that when I signed into the Google Play store on the new phone, it would automatically download all of MY APPS.
    That didn't happen.

    I had to manually re-install each one...

    It downloads all your apps and in Lollipop, sets up their location exactly as you had it. Settings, no you're right.

    Too late now I think if you didn't have it on before but Settings -> Backup & Reset -> Automatic Restore (turn on).

    App data, no, except for Google apps, which are all cloud based.
