With the removal of Equipd from the App Store on December 31, 2014, many who arleady purchased it are wondering how to backup the app. Backing up apps is a handy way to restore them later if they are removed from the App Store and accidentally get deleted from your iPhone. This is also a good idea if you get a new iPhone and want to install an app that is no longer available.
This video walks through how to do just that with the Bible study aid app Equipd (tap here for our video review of Equipd). Here we look at a couple different scenarios. First, how to backup an app before it is removed from the App Store. Then we show you how to backup an app that has already been removed from the App Store but that you still have on your iPhone. This method works for both iPhone and iPad apps.
