So you’ve lost some apps that you paid good money for. Don’t worry, this happens all the time.
Fortunately, you can re-download all your apps back onto your Samsung Galaxy S II from the Android Market by following these simple steps:
- Navigate to the Android Market application and launch the Market
- Press the Menu button and select Downloads
- Scroll through your list of downloaded applications until you find the one that you are looking for (any paid applications should show “Purchased” next to them)
- Once you’ve found your lost application, just re-download it as you did the first time
That’s it! This also works for free applications as well, of course. Your download history is saved in the market to provide easy access to all your applications if needed.
Another handy use for this is freeing up device memory. If there’s an application that you use occasionally, but you don’t want it taking up your device’s on-board memory when you aren’t using it, simply remove it and re-download when you need it through this process.
