Google 'App Data' Sync Setting Appears On Android Devices
Head to the Android sync options for your Google account right now and you'll probably see a new check box sitting up top for 'App Data' sync. The new setting seems to have appeared overnight for most people, and we're currently seeing it on all our devices.
What exactly this new sync setting does remains a bit of a mystery, but with the Google I/O keynote due to take place today, chances are we'll find out sooner rather than later. One possibility might be saved-game synchronization through the rumored Google Play Games service, however 'App Data' sounds a bit broader in scope. With just five hours to go until the keynote, at least we shouldn't have long to wait before we find out more.
What's more, the Google Play Store app itself is also being updated on some handsets, with some folks reporting minor visual changes in the UI.
