an even Easier alternative

download the app, transfer it to your SD card

Download Apk Manager

W251bGwsMSwxLDEsImNvbS5tYWdtYW1vYmlsZS5hcHAuYXBraW5zdGFsbGVyIl0.

open "Apk Manager" and voila select the apps that you wan't to install

let me make it simpler how to install the Backup & Restore app

download the apk on your computer, send it to yourself through email, make sure you send it to your Gmail

now on your phone

go to settings -> applications -> check unknown sources

wait for the email, once  you get the email, open it, and instead of downloading the attachment it will allow you to install it, voila, done
