    Is it possible to backup only one app and have everything fresh on the 5S? I was one of the lucky few to purchase iTether before it was pulled from the App Store. If I delete the app on my phone, I cannot re-download it from the store since it i sno longer available.

    I have it backed up onto iTunes but it is backed up with all of my settings. If I buy a 5s, can I install it brand new and then connect it to iTunes and only bring that one app over?

    Yes, when you plug it in simply set up as a new phone and then when you sync make sure the only thing that has a checkmark by it is the app you want.

    But if you have any data / setting in the app, that won't transfer over if you do it this way.

    Sure but the OP says the app is iTether, which if he loses his app data on it he can set it back up like new in 30 seconds.

    Not that I need it for iTether, but don't apps save settings and scores in the cloud? Like Angry Birds or Candy Crush? Or am I wrong?

    Some apps do, some apps don't.
