    What I want to back up App Data for my App, because I can always reinstall the app from the Play store. And I can’t tell from your write-up, if Super Backup SMS & Contacts will back up the data. Specifically, I want my shopping list from my shopping app backed up before I uninstall and reinstall the app.
    Will this back up the data, and help reinstall the data? Or at least save it in a way that I can find it for importing?
