Default Backing Up 3rd Party Apps ?

Please Login to Remove!

Is there anyway to do a back-up and keep all of your 3rd party apps and their settings as well as your usual contacts list and calendar?

I haven't figured out a way to get that done. Whenever I have had to restore my data, none of my 3rd party apps are ever saved in my back-up files.

I restored an app using the sequence from the FAQ. I see it in the App list, but it doesn't show anywhere in the Menu, so I can't run it. Any ideas on how to get it to show up? Thanks!

It may be hiding in a folder or hidden itself...try showing all icons. Open all yer folders and look for it.

For some reason I don't have the option. I looked in the manual and it says to do it from the main menu, but there is no option to show all, just hide. Any ideas on how to get around this?

Show all should be available when you click the menu button.

If not, you've got issues beyond my control possibly, lol.

Why not just get the OTA for the app?

Is it super secret and not available?

I can OTA all my favorite ten apps in 10 minutes.

It's not available for free any more, so I am trying to restore it from a backup. The restore worked as far as it showing in the app list, just not in the menu to actually be able to run it.

Try deleting it from the applications screen and then restoring it again.
