1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    What backup app would you recommend?

    Sorry if there us already a post on this, but when I search backup I get a ton of hits that are not answering this for me. Thanks.

    Check out MyBackUp Pro and Titanium. Both are paid apps but worth the three or four dollars.

    Do you have to be rooted to use MyBackup Pro or Titanium? And will your restored apps be "recognized" by the market so that they can continue to receive updates from the developers? I understand the limitation with a lot of these backup apps are that the restored apps become standalone instances (like an .apk installed app) that you cannot update from the market anymore. Is this true?

    Titanium must be rooted, my back up no but you cant save app data without root.

    I use and recommend Handy Backup for Android, it's a good and free backup software.
