I've been using Titanium Backup for the past few years, but I don't won't to root my M8. Is there a similar app you guys recommend in the Google Play Store that will backup my apps + data w/out me having to root my device?

Isn't there a non-rooted version of titanium Backup that would backup all your downloaded apps? If not there are plenty of apps out there. My backup for one

I think Helium may work but you need a computer if the phone isn't rooted.

HTC Backup, just link Dropbox or Drive to it.

I used to use MyBackup a lot, though I used the root version. It works, but it's not as easy at the HTC Backup.

I've had good luck with HTC Backup linked to Dropbox and/or Drive. However, it doesn't always restore ALL of my apps. It consistently leaves off about 5 or so with each restore. I have no idea why. It's not biggie as I can just download them manually. I like that it restores my homescreens including widgets and it restores all my saved wifi locations.
