How do I move Android apps from one phone to another?

Do I have to manually copy files from the microSD card or is there an easier way through the Market (like an account sync option)

Yes, you can log in to your account from your new phone, and see 'my apps'. Then redownload what you want. Or, use something like Astro file manager to back up your apps (the .apk installers) to sd and then, on the new phone just reinstall from memory card. It's faster than redownloading them... But if your new phone runs a different version of Android or has significantly different specs, it may be better to redownload because some app versions are not compatible with all phones/OS versions/screen resolutions etc etc...
