I recently converted back to Android with the M8 (went from OG Droid to iPhone 4S and now back again) and I'm just looking at the huge amount of apps HTC includes. Does anyone prefer the stock app to other Google Play options?

Also, would anyone recommend the HTC Backup? I looked at it, but I have no experience with it; I do know it's better than Verizon's "cloud" though!

If Google has an alternarive, I'll use it. They're a better software company.

Does it restore messages if you use a 3rd party SMS app? That actually sounds really useful...

Starting with Kitkat, message store is central and handled by the OS, not the individual apps ... thats why you can only have one single app for messaging enabled at any one time in 4.4

Wow seriously, that's fantastic! I guess I'll be using their backup then!

I'd recommend SMS backup and Restore. It's what i've been using since as long as I can remember.
