How to recover all the applications which were on my previous Galaxy?

Hi all

 

I really hope you guys can help me.

 

I got a Samsung Galaxy S III to replace my Galaxy S II. I thought that when I set up the phone and that I use the same Google/Gmail account, I was gonna get back all the applications that I was using on my S II. But nothing is there (I was able to get back all my contacts). How to do that. I really hope we can do that. Google has all the info about the apps on my account, right?

 

thanks a lot in advance for your help

so it's not possible guys?

 

I'm sure Android backs up the apps in the cloud, right?

The only way I kno is going back to playstore. Menu choose my apps. N then all of the apps you've ever downloaded will be there.

really? and so you mean, download them one by one, manually? I'm very surprised!

Click and hold each app for multi-app selection and you can choose to install them at once.

If you factory reset a device, and (possibly, not sure) if you buy a replacement of the same model (i.e. a Galaxy S2 to replace a broken/lost Galaxy S2), the apps will start to automatically sync to the new device, once you login to your Google account on the new phone.

 

But in the case of a new device, it typically won't do this.  A good number of people have more than one Android device. For instance, I have an Android phone and tablet.  And in many cases, one may not want all the same apps on both devices.

 

Agree that its not a very streamlined system, and could use some improvement, and options for different situations.
