Looking for a simple solution to backup & restore Android apps to & from your PC? Look no further, because XDA member hamsteyr, has introduced APK Batch Installer Tool, a Windows-based application that makes backing up and restoring third-party Android apps a breeze. Just as its name suggests, APK Batch Installer lets you create backup of all your Android apps in the form of individual APK files. In addition, it has the capacity to restore APKs of your favorite/required Android apps from computer in batch. No need to resort to any complex ways that only allow you to restore required apps just one-by-one. Instead, with APK Bath Installer, all you need to do is connect your Android device to the computer via USB cable, and backup/restore apps without any hassle whatsoever. Using this tool, you can pull APKs of all the required apps from various devices, and then batch install all of them to your Android in one go. Please note that APK Batch Install only pulls the APKs of the required apps, and not their customized settings (cached content). This means that upon restore, you only get back an installed and readily available app that needs to be reconfigured/set up right from the scratch.
