    Hey all,

    I'm getting my new evo in the mail shortly (old evo suffered from screen separation issues). My question is, how do I get all my apps from my old evo to my new one? Is it stored in my gmail account?

    Thanks in advance!:)

    AppBrain works well if you just need your apps (and not a full backup).

    App Brain will make a list of all the apps on your current phone. When you activate your new one, you can download app brain again, and it will give you that list. You can then easily re-download all the apps at once, rather than one by one. Keep in mind, this doesnt backup settings or data associated with the apps.

    Like others said, you can use Appbrain.

    Before I got my replacement Evo, I used the FREE App Manager by Amazing Droid to batch-backup the apps to the sd card. I then installed it on the new Evo and did a batch restore.

    One other good reason to backup an app is because there are some apps that are/were free, but are later for sale only or have ads added to them. Keeping a backup copy helps in those cases also.
