My wife has been playing games (Angry Birds Star Wars if that makes a difference) on my Nexus 7 which I have just updated from 4.1 to 4.2. Android 4.2 lets you have multiple users on a single device, so I would like to create a new user account on this device which has all of her game saves.

Without root, is it possible to migrate specific applications data to a new user account on the same device?

This post on Android Police basically says they will be offering accounts soon to the Star Wars game to backup data.

Find the data files for you applications and then upload to something like Google Drive or Dropbox.

Once you have upgraded, download the files.
