"I have some apps installed on my Android phone and I want to perform a factory reset. Is there a simpler way to recover the wiped applications after the reset."
Actually, lost apps are not necessarily completely gone. Purchased apps are normally stored on an online account. However, it only allows for a limited number of additional downloads at no additional fee. Another annoying thing is that it will take you a lot of time and effort to reinstall it: search them in Google Play, and then reinstall them again one by one.
Is there any more straightforward method to recover deleted apps on Android phone? Absolutely yes! We used a data recovery program for Android device named Android Data Recovery which can recover apps (APK files) and other data including photos, contacts, videos, text messages and call history on Android phone and tablet, which are lost due to deletion, rooting, formatting, factory reset, even system crash. It supports all Android devices running Android Lollipop, 4.4 and newer, Android 3.0 to 4.3, Android 2.3 or earlier, such as Samsung, HTC, Motorola, Sony, Google, Asus.
Follow the instructions to get back lost, deleted, missing, wiped Android apps immediately.
Once you have restored lost app files (APK files) with Android Data Recovery, connect your device to your computer and enable mass storage. Go ahead and copy them to your Android device via a USB cable.
Before you can actually install the APK file, you'll need to tell your device that it can install any apps outside of the Play Store. You can find this switch in your Settings –> Security –> Unknown Sources.
Once this is enabled, you're clear to fire up your file browser (I personally prefer ASTRO), locate the APK file, and open it. The Android OS should take over, identifying that the APK file is an app, and ask you whether you'd like to go ahead and install it, all permissions accounted for. After a couple seconds, your app should be installed and ready to go!
