    I want to do a clean install and set the phone up as a new device. But there is a car maintenance app that has data I need.

    Is there a way to selectively restore this one app from iTunes or the cloud.

    Any info would be much appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Rick

    The OP wants to restore the data for the one app.

    I'm not sure there's a way to do that.

    I don't think there is a way to do this, but I would love to know as well if there is. As much as I love angry birds and cut the rope. Playing them over isn't something I want to do at the moment lol.

    Don't think there's a way. That's a shame. Would be a very good feature to be able to do that.

    Thanks for the replies, this is what I thought, but wanted to double check. I'll have to decide if I'm ready to lose the data.

    I have thought the same as i have 2 apps which data i would like to keep shen i receive my 4s.

    A thing i will try when i receive it is:
    on the phone in iCloud settings i can choose which apps to backup, i will try to just backup the 2 apps i need, so when i restore it will only be those.

    Dunno if it will work, but its worth a try :)

    Good idea, I was thinking the same thing after reading the iCloud thread a minute ago.

    I may give this a try also.
