How to Move APKs and Apps Data From Your Android Phone to a New Android Phone

Looking for a simple way to move your entire collection of apps (third-party apps and system apps) along with its settings from your Android phone onto a new or second Android device? If yours is a rooted phone, here is how you can simply do all that with a simple app called Carbon. Note that Carbon will also work on non-rooted devices, but with limitation.

Carbon enables rooted devices to create backups of all their installed third party and system apps, along with data held within them and save them straight to SD card, PC, Google Drive or Dropbox. This makes it easy to restore your entire collection of apps onto a new or second device.

Also, you can choose exactly what you wish to backup. So, if you have more than one device and you need to keep them in sync, then you can give Carbon a try.


Carbon available in free and premium versions. Free version lets you backup and restore from SD card and PC, while premium version offers automatic backup as well as backup and restore from cloud storage such as Dropbox, Box and Google Drive.
