Why Do You Need To Recover Deleted Apps?

In most cases, you would go and uninstall an app that you don’t find worthy enough. However, there could be several reasons why the apps got deleted and why you want to recover it.

For instance, you were trying to clear the storage on your device and accidentally kicked off an app. Another reason could be simply accidentally uninstallation since it takes just a few taps before an entire app vanishes. One of the most prudent issues happens when you are transferring data or cloning a phone to another, especially when it’s an Android to iPhone transfer. That’s when most people might accidentally toss their favorite apps and might not even recall the names at times. 

Of course, I could go on and on but I am sure you got the point.

How To Recover Deleted Apps on Android Phones?
  1. Launch the Google Play Store on your phone.
  2. Tap on your Google profile located in the top-right corner.
  3. Select “Manage Apps & Devices” which should open a list of apps installed on your device. 
  4. On the top, you’ll see two options – Overview and Manage. 
  5. The first pill says ‘Installed’ by default so tap on it and change it to ‘Not Installed’. This is where you get a list of apps that were earlier installed on your device but aren’t anymore.

Recover Deleted Android Apps Using Recovery Tool

Another method you can get your hands on deleted Android apps is via recovery tools such as PhoneRescue and DroidKit. Most of these apps are free but you need to have a companion laptop/desktop to find the deleted apps. Also, the effectiveness of such apps may be limited so you will have to take care of that as well. Some of the recovery tools that I have seen and used are – PhoneRescue, DroidKit, Recuva, Dr. Fone Recovery Tool, etc.
