Things that don't work (AppBrain) Things that do - fortunately a longer list

Replacing my Evo has been an adventure.  No real surprise at that.  But I trusted Appbrain and it completely failed. I log into the account online and see two lists "Apps on the HTC Evo 4G" and "Apps on the phone".  The former has my current set of apps.  The latter has the set that was on my phone before it died.  Same signed in account.  No way I can see to set the latter list to the current phone.  All kinds of places to share lists, put it on Twitter, put it on Facebook, get more apps, etc, etc.  But the most important thing that it does which is to be a stand by backup in case of phone failure is just that, a complete failure.  It is still sitting there waiting for a resync from a phone that is dead.

Good way to clean out my apps, though.  And I can just go through the list and get the ones again that I need.  Fortunately the Google has kept track of what I've spent money on.

Meanwhile, some of the apps have really done a great job.  Catch.com (Catch Notes) had me sign in with my Gmail account so that all of my notes sync'd and are back on my phone.  I'll be buying the pro version if they ever come out with one.  Audible even stored where I was in my book so that once I downloaded the book it picked up right where I left off.  Really a surprise.

Swype Keyboard comes up as no longer available for Android.  Haven't figured that one out yet but I'll keep at it as I like the app.  My favorite ringtones are back (.http://www.zedge.net/) although it seemed like it was easier to get them last time.

All in all th experience was not terrible but should have been a lot better.  I'll be looking for a better way to figure out my apps for the next time.. . . and there will be one... .it's why I have insurance on the phone.
