One of the most annoying problems in case you restore your iDevice using iTunes is that basically you loose everything (applications,games). Although, you can manually install the desired applications at the expense of spending some time. But what about the applications and games data that was stored in the iPhone, iPad etc. You can’t bring it back! and this is too bad. Another scenario is that you are playing some game on the iPhone say Angry Birds and you want the game progress (saved data) to be also available on your iPad. Apple’s iTunes have not any answer to deal with these kind of scenarios. However if you happen to have a jailbroken iDevice then you are in luck! This is because there is new Cydia application called Data Deposit that allows to backup the current iOS saved application and games data to your Dropbox account. Best of all you can not only restore it on the same iDevice afterwards, but also on any other iDevice you might own using Dropbox! So, you will never loose any important saved data in your applications or games again if you are using this Cydia application.

Data Deposit application itself is pretty simple to use, just install it from Cydia and enter your Dropbox credentials after launching the application, so that it can access your Dropbox account and then use the Backup My Save Data option to backup. On the other device that you want to sync use the Restore From Dropbox option. It’s that simple! Best of all it’s free.
