    Way to save apps prior to factory reset?

    Apologies if this post is in the wrong place....

    Hey all, I've been encountering a few problems with my fascinate (stock, running launcher pro) lately after the update...namely, an alarm that won't go away, no matter how many times I delete it, and I cannot change the volume or the notification tone in the Settings menu without a force close. These are rather annoying and I'm considering a factory reset. But, I've downloaded (and paid for) 100+ apps, many of which I use. Is there any way I can back these up/save them to my computer so that I can quickly load them onto my phone after a factory reset without having to pay for them again?

    Thanks in advance.

    All your apps purchased from the Android Market are backed up by Google. You can re-download them whenever you need to. Same with apps purchased from the Amazon Appstore.

    There are also apps on the Market that will backup and restore all your apps instead of manually restoring them one at a time. For rooted users use Titanium Pro (i think you have to buy the paid version for "batch" restores though) or for non-rooted users try "App Backup & Restore which is free and will backup & restore your apps.
    good luck!

    And you can back up your apps with google. Under settings/privacy.

    But my vote hours to Titanium Pro. it gives you the most control. But like was mentioned get the paid version to get batch operations.

    Another thing I do is called App List Backup. It makes a list of your installed apps so no matter what happens you have your apps in a list and you can reinstall them from the market.

    1. as for hard reset i have a full procedure here and i would say its indeed a panacea for thousands of issues occur on a phone. Let me share few of my experiences with you guys, I had some sort of problem on my Galaxy S2, it used to freeze quite often, initially I did nothing and felt its just a normal thing and will be all right on its own. But I was totally wrong because the phone became more drastic only after a week. This was the time when i started searching for a remedy, searched a ton on internet and finally came across a solution; I would say the best solution rather. Something that helped me to get rid of the problems was this How to hard reset Samsung Galaxy S2 I got a strong feeling while I was reading your Blog and thought of contributing a little to help people like me. I mean those who are having problems on their phones like I have mentioned above. hope it will work for you and get you out of this hazard. thanx
