Why Don't I See My Application Data on My New Phone?

Environment

  • Upgraded from prior Android phone
  • Installed same application on new phone 

Answer

When you install an application on a new phone, it may not show the applications' backed up data. Simply installing the application may not include syncing any data to the app. You'll need to use the application's "data restoration" method to retrieve data from a backed up file.  

Additional Notes

The application itself must be installed from the PlayStore, and isn't installed from a backup.  The backup would only include the data that the application can "read."
