    Long story short my phone got wiped and I lost all of my backups. I had about 300 apps installed, and I see all of them under "ALL" in the apps section of My Apps. Is there any way to install all of them at once?

    Thanks!

    There is a setting to backup and restore your apps, but if you didn't have that checked before you lost everything, google will have not known to reinstall everything. Actually people are typically asking to avoid what you are trying to do on purpose. #irony

    Either way, I don't think there is a way to force what you are asking. What may be faster is to get on the Google Play website and initiate the installs from there.

    Good luck.

    +1 to the Google Play website method. It's painful to do it on your phone, especially with 300 apps.

    And 300 apps, wow! Maybe it would be a good time to go through the apps and determine which ones you actually use. And that being said, I wish there was a way to remove the apps from My Apps so I don't have to see apps that I installed 3 years ago. Or apps I installed and deleted 2 minutes later because they were horrible.

    Yeah, I know 300 is excessive.. Thanks for the suggestions, guess I'll go through the online store.

    If you root, you can back up the APKs for all your apps using Titanium or MyBackup Pro and simply have them saved to your SD card. I think you can save that file to a computer, too.

    I had the same thing happen. Used the Google Play web store. It was quick, and worked great.

    I was rooted, had NANDoid backups and all that.. Then my SD card got wiped.
