    For anyone who is constantly switching ROMs to stay up with the latest a greatest, you know how difficult it can be to jump around making backups of all your apps every time and going through the hassle of having to reinstall them once you've installed your new ROM. Well, thankfully, a new tool is in development for ROM Toolbox that will make all of that a whole lot easier. Just select the apps and data that you want to have saved and then you just have to choose 'Install update.zip' from CWM and viola! All of your apps will be installed and working without having to go through the painful process of installing backup software, etc...

    I was starting to wonder if I was the only one who after flashing a new rom went back to google store and download every paid app again.But lately google store has reinstalled all apps once you syc google account.

    I use nandroid manager which grabs all your apps/data from a nandroid backup. This looks pretty cool though for sure.

    Yeah, superR is right, nandroid manager is really easy and works great. Especially if ya have a backup that is missing the nandroid mdm5 file. Grab apps from that and install on new flashed rom....i think that's how it goes, lol

    Update: this app has gone through a few major updates and now compatibility is much stronger. Now able to smoothly switch ROMs with ease.
