    Recently for my birthday I was gifted the Samsung Galaxy S4, and let me say it was quite an upgrade from my old phone, the Motorola Droid X. After having the Droid X for so long (roughly three years), I never realized how slow it actually was compared to newer phones in the marketplace. I immediately went to re-download some of the apps that I purchased when I noticed two apps I purchased from Play Store were missing: Gameboid and Rom Buddy. I was wondering if there was a simple way to move those two apps to my computer with a USB connection and then to my new phone with a USB connection as well.

    Welcome to the forum

    I don't even see those 2 apps on the Google Store but the answer is no. You would first need to be rooted at least on the Droid X phone, but there is a possibility that those apps are not, (for whatever reason), compatible with the S4. There are some app sharing apps on the Store site but they have never let me transfer the app I want to transfer as the app is locked.

    If you didn't even find them on the Store they may have been pulled by Google for some reason.
