When you sign into the new phone with the same Gmail account, you can easily download the applications. The data associated with the specific application might not be transferred if the application doesn't support the backup and restore feature through the Play Store.

I'm most definitely NOT a VZW employee. If a post answered your question, please mark it as the answer.
