I understand some apps won't back up properly through iTunes, and this is my case with these 3 apps i have. is there a way to get them off the phone individually? im getting a swapped phone soon and need to do this so i don't lose my data. i tried iexplorer, it keeps quitting on me. both computers.

I thought they all backed up. Please list the apps and I'll see if I can find any information on this.

iCloud and iTunes backups are the same, but iCloud can sync data between devices. For example, if you are reading a book on your iPad and then close the app and open the book on your iPod or iPhone, it will pick up on the same page where you left off on the iPad.

Ah okay, only have an iPhone and the one i'd be getting would be on the spot at Target (when they do decide to get my 16gb iPhone 5 in stock).

Backing up to iCloud or iTunes on a computer will back up all app data.

Restore backup would also carry over game saves? I know these apps that I have don't work with backups, but will game saves backup ?
