Currently I have installed ~500 apps, mostly productivity apps and tools of various types.
I would like to have only ~100 most frequent apps installed and keep the rest (~400) uninstalled, stored in the file system along with their settings. If needed, I would like to restore such a stored app (ideally including its settings), use it and when no longer needed, archive + uninstall again.
The sample of such an app is a Latin lexicon or some infrequently used measurement tool.
Is there an app or some procedure for this task? Or the truth is that there is no tool which can easily backup and restore settings of 3rd-party apps (only the APKs themselves)? Could you refer to a tool who could at least partially automate this? At least some APK install+deinstall tool keeping user-friendly record about each app and showing Archive/Restore button next to it?
The reason of my expectation is unnecessarily high battery consumption with ~500 installed apps, because many of them also install their own services, slowing down the device. I want to have them at hand if needed (including their settings) but normally keep them away from the OS.
The phone is not rooted.
