If you have to reset your device, make sure you sign back into your Google account then all apps both paid and free will be restored automatically.
App Monster's restore of paid apps option is only "Restore From Play Store"
where free apps have an additional option "Restore From SD"
It does not save you from paid apps that have crapped out with new "updates"
