    Asurion replaced my Droid once and for some reason it automatically restored all my installed apps.
    This second time around, it did not. Though if I use a desktop PC to log into http://market.android.com/mylibrary I can see all of the apps I used to have on my old phone.

    Is there any way to run a script rather than manually downloading all of my old apps?
    I'm no coder, (crashed a computer by dividing by zero in High School C++ class while writing a program to play Tic-Tac-Toe.) but I'd think that the script should be pretty simple.

    START SCRIPT

    Create List variables "Local List" and "Library List"
    Create string variables "Local Prog" and "Library Prog"
    Create integer variable "Count" with initial value of 1

    Log into Android Market library
    List apps in Alphabetical order -> Store in "Library List"

    Subroutine 1
    Goto local phone storage
    List apps in Alphabetical order -> Store in "Local List"

    Subroutine 2
    View item number "Count" in "Library List" -> Store in "Library Prog"
    View item number "Count" in "Local List" -> Store in "Local Prog"

    IF "Library Prog" == "Local Prog"
    THEN "Count" +1 -> Store in "Count"
    repeat Subroutine 2

    ELSE Fetch and Install "Library Prog"
    repeat Subroutine 1

    END SCRIPT


    Actually, I think that's gonna crash because it'll try and look for a list item higher than what's actually on the lists... Like I said, I'm not a coder.
