5 Apps To Back Up Texts On Android
Think about how much time you spend texting. Really think. Okay, maybe I am the one with the problem, but I do text a lot. I just find it easier. And I do prefer texting over calling when it comes to dealing with detailed information, like addresses, contact details, accounts and so on. Texts can also hold sentimental value, if you ever want to look back on how your relationship developed over time. This is why you may want to have the option of keeping your SMS history safe. Luckily, as always, there’s an app for that!
SMS Backup +
SMS Backup + is a simple and easy app, that will store all your texts in your Gmail account, creating a separate label. You can then access them whenever there is Internet connection and even do a keyword search if necessary. SMS Backup + can also save your call log entries and MMS.
My Backup Pro
As the name suggests, My Backup Pro allows you save all sorts of content to a cloud or an SD card. And by “all sorts of content” I really mean ALL: from photos, videos and texts all the way to system settings, applications and screen shortcut positions. This app is perfect if you like to follow latest releases and change phones often, as it will let you easily transfer your old phone’s content and even settings to a new device.
MySMS is an independent messaging app, that can and will want to take over the one you already have on the phone. Similar to iMessage, it will use Wi-fi connection to send texts for free to all your friends who are also using MySms app.Naturally, all your messages will be backed up and you can go back to your message history at any time. A good feature is that you can also back them up on Evernote.
Uppidy is a free app on Google Play that allows you to store your text messages on the cloud, while letting you keep your current messaging app. You can easily access your messages from any device and are also granted the option to sync Uppidy with Evernote. Uppidy also lets you manage, share and search all text/ SMS messages on Uppidy.com for free.
Similarly to BackupPro, Super Backup is a rather comprehensive backup solution, taking care of all sorts of data (call logs, bookmarks, calendar, etc) and storing them on your phone’s SD card, Gmail or Google Drive. A few nice features of this particular app are scheduled backups and the ability to save selected conversations (it’s up to you which ones to keep or toss), as well as the ability to save messages to your SD card.
