Jolla store to remember installed apps and initiate reinstall

After full wipe of the device I should be able to download all my installed applications back to my Jolla device. Jolla store should remember which applications I had installed and propose to (re)install them. This should be tied to my user account.

This is a valid consumer need in cases of:

  • lost device
  • mechanically damaged device
  • purchase of completely new Jolla device
  • or when phone is flashed and user does not have backup (not sure if backup even restores this information)

Backup does not store this information about installed applications.

To this to work efficiently, every uninstall should be communicated to harbour too, or perhaps it is enough to "sync" installed apps when opening Store > My Apps, as it seems to go through checking for updates for every app (concluded from the fact that process is sometimes slow) - or whenever such process is done in background.

Should the reinstall be initiated (or suggested) when signing in on Jolla account with no apps installed (after factory reset) - Problems may occur when signing in with another account etc.

Just my thoughts.

Related to this question, here is an idea how this was implemented on the N9:
