    Default Backing up saves for a specific app.
    I was wondering where do applications store their App-Specific settings. I was poking around at /var/mobile/Applications/<app folder>/Library/Preferences but all I found were two small plist files and I'm not sure if that ~100 byte file is what's actually saving all my data.

    Any ideas?

    AppBackup backs up App Store apps. ModMyi.com | AppBackup
    If you look inside a backup (/var/mobile/Library/Preferences/AppBackup/tarballs/) you'll see it backs up more than just a couple of plists.
