Apps not syncing to new GS3
I got my mom a new GS3 for her birthday, and tried to help her set it up today.
I activated the phone, but wasn't prompted to sign into a google account like when you normally set up a phone. So I went into accounts and sync settings and added her account. However, the play store didn't start downloading the apps she had downloaded to her old OG Droid. I then tried to go on my PC to the Play store and view her downloaded apps and remotely install them on her new phone, but when I click "Install" and am asked to choose a device, her new GS3 does not show up as a choice.
So how do I sync all of those apps from her OG Droid to her new GS3 short of installing on the phones play store one by one.
On a related note, I know that she has a number of her apps on the SD card. If I transfer the SD card to her new phone, is there a way to install those apps onto the phone from the SD card? Where do I find the apps to do this if so?
Thanks for the help, all!
