http://forums.androidcentral.com – I'm an iPhone user who got a galaxy s3 recently, so I've few problems with my android phone The most important concerns the backup. In ios it was easy as itune manages all (apps, musics, pics, personal info, etc). But in android, I use my google account to sync contacts and calendars. There is also Kies for samsung phones to backup media files. But, it remains the apps!!! I did not found a way to backup my apps to my pc or mac. If I do a factory reset, I have to re-download apps from google play. I just want to take them back by restoring from my pc/mac... if an app comes from other places, (HowTos)
