Backing up and restoring applications is a topic that has been discussed on XDA at length before.
!!! AppSync requires a rooted device !!!
Whether you’re flashing a new ROM or moving to a new phone, backing up your applications and saving your app data can be the difference between bragging rights and playing Angry Birds Space for another two months to three-star every level. Thankfully, there’s an application that will help you sync applications and app data across devices. AppSync’s the name and it’s looking very good for you to do intended.
ABOUT THIS APP
RATING:(8) average 5.0
AppSync is a very simple application that transfers apps and data between Android devices that are connected on the same LAN using multicast, which is what UPnP and DLNA devices use. Developed by XDA Senior Member chrulri, the app can be useful for backing up applications on a spare device you’re not using or even transferring your apps to a new device.

- Some older Android devices do not fully support multicast networking because of an old bug, this will cause, that your device cannot see other devices in your local network. For more information, see: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=de.cedata.android.htcudpfix
- Some apps do store device dependent settings (sometimes even encrypted) and it is known that you will not be able to sync those apps because of this
While simple, having yet another way to keep apps backed up is always welcome. For further information, go to the application thread.
