Recover data from an accidentally deleted app in iPhone?
Recently, I accidentally deleted an application (called “iTalk”) from my iPhone. It is easy to re-download it. However, I have some recordings in it which are lost. Could you please let me know if there are any softwares to recover data from iPhone.
My friend was screwing around with my iPhone and deleted my app. When I connected to iTunes to sync (without knowing) it also deleted the app form my computer. When I finally realized it I tried to reinstall the app but the app data is lost! I have a time machine backup of it and I need to know how to restore the app data for that one app only. I do not not want to restore since it will update my iPhone and get rid of the jailbreak. Any help would be appreciated thanks!
