    Downloaded apps missing after reset of Samsung Android handset

    As there were some issues with the navigation app for android installed on my phone, I tried resetting the device. But as of now all the downloaded apps on my gadget is missing. How can I retrieve those apps?

    I think you did't back up before resetting.It is advisable that to have backup before factory resetting.Because of you don;t will lose everything.This is the reason why you are not able to find any installed app.So,always remember to have backup.Since,you have lost all the installed app you need to install those app from Google Play Store again.Secondly open the Google Play Store.In that tap on Menu key & a new window will be opened.In that window will see an option as My Apps.In My App move the screen to right & will see All.In that will find all the apps which you have installed.

    Hi

    I am really sorry to say but you cannot retrieve any of the applications that you had earlier in your device.. Its always said that whenever you are going to format or reset your phone to the factory setting or even update it to the latest android software, PLEASE KEEP A BACK UP OF YOUR DATA ON YOUR LAPTOP.
    That is said because once format happens, all the data on your device is bound to get deleted..

    Hence you can visit the Google Play Store and then download all the other applications from there one by one.. so that ultimately one time you would have all of them back on your phone..

    From next time onward please remember to keep a back up, or atleast write the names of the apps on a paper so that you can later on download them again..

    Hope this helps

    Yes, apps got deleted when you reset the device,not only apps but also other things like contacts,games,messages,other datas in internal memory got deleted when you reset the device,so always remember to take backup of all data present in the device and storeit in pc or laptop with the help of USB cable just transfer the data from device to system,since apps got deleted,you need to again install them from play store or android market and use it,always remeber to take backup of all data

    Hello friend,
    There may be some software regarding issue to must have to rset your phone and then try again.

    Remember, by performing a reset, all your data- settings, messages, apps, etc would be deleted.
    So backup up anything important.

    Follow these steps:
    - Go to 'Settings'.
    - Privacy.
    - 'Factory Data Reset'.
    - Fill in your id and password and confirm.
    - You can choose whether to delete SD card data or not.

    After the process is complete, your device would return to its out-of-the-box state or to its factory settings.

    Regards!
