    Basically when you uninstall an app, it pops up asking if you want to turn it into a ghost. If you select yes, it stores the apk on your sdcard, and adds the app to its list of ghosts. When you want to install simply click on the ghost in the list.

    I use it to keep my phone clean, and if i download an app, but it doesnt yet have the features i want, i ghostify it.

    Top app, the developer seems very helpful and open to ideas too.

    "Ghostify will memorize all necessary informations to reinstall them quickly if you need them."

    So it saves application data as well? Does this app require root access?

    If it simply reinstalls apps when you need them without restoring data, then it's kind of pointless, isn't it? :thinking:

    I don't see any benefit over just backing up apk's with Astro or any other program. Now, if it allowed you to reinstall them without having to input your credentials again that would be great. Have a 4 digit code to allow it to reinstall them WITH credentials already input.

    Sorry, wm...didn't read your post first. ^^^^what he said!

    i used to use astro (actually i used app monster), but i like the way whenever i uninstall an app, it shows a notification, and upon clicking shows all the apps waiting to be ghostified (or not).

    I don't think it can restore data, use titanium for that.

    Whats confusing?? I explained why i used it in my post!
