    Apps Backup

    Do I really need to backup my apps? Can't I just reinstall them from the Market? The Market knows which ones I own anyway.

    I am using MyBackupPro for data, but do not want to use the space needed for this because it puts me over the 50MB free space.

    What are you doing? Yes, the market remembers what you've bought and downloaded. Free apps, it won't. The backup, makes it easy to get to a restore point if you're flashing ROM's and whatnot.

    thx

    Thanks for the quick reply. I am simply wondering it is worth backing them up. I am not rooting yet, but maybe it will come in handy then.

    You confirmed my suspicions.

    I don't think that's completely accurate. I've been hopping back and forth between a couple ROMs, each time doing a fresh install and not a backup restore, and the Market Seems to automatically re-install all my previously installed apps; even the free ones.

    It depends on where you are storing your apps. SDcard? Should retain. Anything on the sys. folders...wiped and the Market will remember.

    None of them had been installed to the SD card. I know it's the market that was installing them, because the apps would suddenly just start appearing on the device after I logged into the market for the first time on the new isntall.

    Well, whatever. If the market installs the free ones too...fantastic.

    Do they require backup? Can't hurt, but it doesn't seem necessary if the market is going to remember.

    I always back up my apps with Titanium Backup, because it also stores the user settings/preferences and data associated with the apps as well.

    I also backup my apps with Astro, just because.

    I've already come across two apps that have since disappeared from the Market that I still use, because I have the apk files backed up to my sd card/PC.
    a little obsessive...

    I use titanium even though market backs up my apps as well. Why not, it's not like I'm short of space on my sdcard anyway. Plus, that way you can back up specific apps only. I backup all my apps, then use titanium to restore only the ones I want.
