Easily manage, backup and restore your apps

AppsMonster is a perfect replacement for the Android built-in app manage: it's easier to access and comes packed with interesting functionality. It allows you to quick launch, uninstall, backup, share and launch the market page of all the apps installed in your device.

What's more, all apps are listed displaying basic info such as if it runs in background, use Admob, support App2SD, install date and size. Apps can be sorted by name, size, date and App2SD. Likewise, they can be searched by keywords. AppMonters also shows basic storage information (used/available), apps installed and apps on the SDcard.

Although it won't win a design award, AppMonster is intuitive and useful. And, above all, it overtakes in ease-of-use and functionality the built-in Android app manager.

Developer's original description available here
AppMonster is an application manager for Android smartphones and tablets, that provides anything regarding installed Android Apps (like backup, restore, manage), by simple and powerful user interface.

The very first App Manager for Android, since 03. March 2009 on the Market.

Languages: English, German, Russian, Spanish, Polish, Japanese

With AppMonster you can easily manage, backup and restore your apps. Enjoy features like batch backup, batch restore, uninstall, install from SD card, share and much more. Simple, fast, easy to use, stable.

Let the AppMonster support you after phone reset or switch to a new phone.

It does not need ROOT, all features like backup, restore and other work without ROOT. But if you have ROOT on your phone or tablet, you get more features.

and more:

- Scan SD card for install-files (.apk-files)
- Share app-links via Facebook, Twitter, mail
- Share install files directly
- Send backed up apps (.apk-files) by mail, Dropbox or what ever

Since Android 4.4 KitKat on dual-storage devices (internal / external) apps can no longer write files to external SD card. Some apps can, but only files, f.e. pics, but no folders. AppMonster must write folders in order to work. As long Google does not make SD card useful again, the only workaround is to use internal storage to store your backups.

So if you on KitKat & dual-storage device change AppMonster's setting to use internal storage (see "Backup folder").

I'm working on a solution.

    I have been using this for years and I must say that this is a superb app. But I must also admit that I preferred the old version where apps "backup" or not was promptly displayed, and please bring back the black background. And since Kit Kat ruined the b

    Recently I've realized that the app cannot perform anymore a backup for any protected application installed. I know that this was possible, because I've done it before. The default backup is checked and the Root is present... What's the catch? I'm on 4.2.
