    I just did a factory reset as I had google calendar problems. I noticed that I had to go into the market and open all "my market apps" and download each app. Is there an app that manages all that? Download all kind of thing. Saves me the hassle of finding what app I want and having it installed. Something like ninite but for android apps would be fine too.

    My phone downloads them all automatically every time I factory reset.

    How does that happen? Maybe auto-sync on?

    There's an option to automatically backup and restore Google account data in Android 2.2 (iirc) and later. If it's there it'll be in Settings/Privacy.

    You mean the "Back up my data" option?

    My angry birds session has been wiped out:D The word document was also gone.

    No, you'll need root access to back up something like your Angry Birds progress. The word document is going to be gone if it's not backed up and it's saved internally.
