    Now that I have all my apps that I like from my phone loaded onto my Prime how do I go about copying user data to the Prime?

    As in the data for the apps? Saved game and that sort of thing? No way to do that without Root on both devices and Titanium Backup.

    And probably wouldn't be wise to transfer that data.

    AirDroid... it is the shizz, one of the best apps ever. Apps, data, files, images, sounds, music, photos, everything via WiFi and a slick browser interface

    App data should be OK (except you'd have to uninstall the apps and re-instate them with TB because the file names won't match the ones installed on the tablet via the Market, see the TB guide at my blog for details on that). I've transferred app data from tablet to phone and back again without problems.

    I think he may be thinking of system settings and data, which definitely should not be transferred because the it'll be unstable as all hell afterwards with more FC's than you can shake a stick at.

    If the app data is so important, then it probably will be fine but I wouldn't move any sort of data from phone to phone, phone to tablet, tablet to phone but that's me. It's easier to troubleshoot a problem when you're not transferring data.

    Nice application. You can also use WiFi File Explorer. I have transferred files back and forth between my GN and my Galaxy Tab with it.
