Keep Your Data Safe: 5 Backup Apps For Android
Quite often we do not take backing up seriously until it’s too late. And it’s only when all our messages, contacts and app data fall into the abyss that we start thinking that we should have taken the extra time to get ready for the worst case scenario.
Let’s avoid the problem instead of going through the trouble of fixing them. Especially, since there are so many helpful tools to make the backup process go quickly and smoothly. Here are 5 backup applications for Android devices that will simplify the task of keeping all of your data safe.
Helium App Sync And Backup
Helium is a great backup solution, as it will help you back up your apps, data, contacts, text messages and call log. The best thing about is that you WILL NOT have to root your phone. You will only need to install a desktop application in addition to the mobile one. And if your device happens to be rooted, you will only need the mobile application. Helium App Sync & Backup is an app by ClockworkMod (custom recovery for Android smartphones and tablets) and a strong choice for all your backup needs.
You can also go for a premium version, which supports cloud backups and is ad-free.
Another app that does not insists that you route your phone is Holo Backup. Well, it’s not an app per say, but a desktop tool, that allows you to back up your smartphone’s data to your laptop. You can back up your apps and data, as well as text messages – and, what’s more, do all of that wirelessly. You will need to root your phone to enable wireless backup, but it’s a nice option to have nonetheless. The app is free and there are no premium upgrades with more advanced features. But when it comes to performing a simple backup with no add-ons, it does get the job done.
SMS Backup Free +
If you are primarily concerned with backing up your text messages, MMS or call logs, then you may choose an app that caters specifically to that backup category. You will be able to set up the frequency for when the app backs up your messages and there will be a separate label in Gmail for the backed up texts. True, SMS Backup Free may not offer the same comprehensive approach as other applications and you will not be able to backup your media. But it is a simple and lightweight solution for backing up your key data.
We have already mentioned Titanium Backup in Must Have Apps For A Rooted Android Phone. And yes, it does require root and is one of the most popular backup tools for rooted phones. Titanium Backup is an all-in-one backup solution and once you have it, you will probably not need anything else. The only downside may be an overly simplistic interface and even though it does not in any way interfere with the functionality, be forewarned that the app cares about its inner beauty much more than its looks.
If you search for beauty as well as functionality, you will be more pleased with Ultimate Backup. The app comes with a well-designed interface and the functions to match. The application is available in free and premium versions, but even the unpaid option offers a multitude of features, like local and cloud backups of apps, app data, contacts, message, as well as task killing, cache clearing and more.
Summing it all up, no matter which tool you choose to restore and save data on your phone, make sure that your key information, like contacts, call logs and apps are safe and sound. Just in case.
