    Are you rooted, didn't see you mention that.

    If not rooted, it is my understanding they are put to the sd card into a special folder, but you can't see them. They still run, just off the card. Not sure if that is the same for rooted phones.

    Is that your problem, or are they all gone on phone to because you wiped and had no apps backup like Titanium Backed if rooted or MyBackUp Pro for non-rooted users. You need one of them and back up your sd card before wiping, not necessarily everytime, but enough to keep the bu up to date.

    Do you have a phone backup, if rooted, that you can restore from. If not I guess you have to manually reinstall. Sorry.

    One of the advantages of rooting is full image backups.

    I just went through a wipe myself a couple of weeks ago. I had Apps that could be installed on the SD card ON my SD card. After the system wipe I set it up with my GMail address & then left my phone alone for about 20 minutes. When I picked it back up all my apps had been downloaded and re-installed on my phone. Just a heads up though, the apps that can be moved to your SD card, first attempt on my phone failed with an error message (I forgot what it said exactly) but it took two tries to get the apps back onto my SD card. After thought, I figured the first attempt wiped the info from the first install, and then the second attempt actually did the move.
    This error message happened for every app. All is back up and working correctly now no problems.
