1. Never be unarmed.
2. See Rule #1
USMC rule # 23 of gunfighting: Be polite, be professional, but have a plan to kill everyone you meet.
OK, let me try again.
1. I buy MyBackup Pro to backup both my paid and free apps to the SD card.
2. My phone dies and I get a replacement or I need to do a factory reset.
3. I restore all of my apps from the SD card using MyBackup Pro.
Now the question:
Will I get automatic updates after I restore the apps from the SD card? If not, then it is useless for me to spend money on MyBackup Pro. I might as well just keep a list of all my free apps and reinstall them from the market.
Edit: Never mind. It looks like 640k answered my question.

if mybackup pro allows you to also save your settings, saved games, documents, etc., etc., it might be worth it. just because the app downloads and installs, doesn't mean that it's what it used to be.
from my personal experiences, only paid apps will be backed up and free ones will not..........spent time with vzw and moto on this because i was under the impression that any app from you download would be backed up since your history is attached to your gmail account.
The Android market Hep even states "Note: Free applications are not saved to My Downloads after you remover them." i.e. get a new phone or do a factory reset.
Correct me if I am wrong and help me because i was forced to install my apps from my backup from the sd and have just setttled for not getting updates for now until I have time to reinstall every free app again from the market.
if you had paid apps that you DIDN'T install, those WON'T install.
i have 50+ apps and am on my third DROID and have reset at least three times per DROID. every app is reinstalled.
it did. the timing on when you get the apps may vary, but i ALWAYS got my apps. and a solid wifi connection ALWAYS made them come faster.
