is there an android app that allows you back up your app and then install your apps from one device to another without losing your settings and configurations? for example back up a game, install it in a new device and then open and run from the exact same place without having to log in again.

Have you tried Helium or Titanium Backup? They are used frequently to backup apps and data.

There is also a ADB backup method that allows you to backup the apk file and its app data with the correct command/commands/switches and can be restored to another device.

Alternatively, you can use a file manager app that has a feature that allows you to see all of the user apps that you have installed and backup the apps of your choice. Once you have the apk file backed up(you could also just download the apk file from the internet), you should be able to find up the backed up copy of the apk in your backup/apps folder in your internal storage on your device, then you can connect your device to your PC then open your device's internal storage on PC and open the folder where the backed up copy of your apk is located and copy it over to your PC, then find your Android folder in your device's internal storage, inside your android folder, you should see a folder containing the app data for the app that you want to backup. Right click that specific app's data folder and make a copy of it then store it on your PC.

Then, on the other device, transfer the apk file to that device's internal storage then install the apk from internal storage, then connect that device to PC and copy/paste the app data folder to the Android folder on that device's internal storage. Then, reboot the device.

So, to simplify, backup the apk, copy the backed up apk to PC, find the app data folder for that app in the device's Android folder, copy that folder to PC. Then, copy the apk file onto the new device's internal storage, then install the app from there. Then, transfer the app data folder to the new device's Android folder, reboot.
