With Backup Your Mobile, you have more choices than most apps will offer. Think of how annoying or nerve-racking it would be if something happened on your Android and all your contacts—business, personal and otherwise—disappeared. Think of all the phone numbers and email addresses that you would now have to track down and re-enter manually into your device. No worries: Backup Your Mobile removes this annoying and time-consuming process by backing up each and every contact you have in your book.
Another exciting and useful capability this app can boast is the ability to back up call logs. This not-always-seen feature is music to the ears of users who, for a variety of reasons, need the convenience of accessing previously made calls. If something happens to your phone, these call logs could disappear and you might lose record of an important call. But Backup Your Mobile will save these logs and put them in the file storage of your choosing, letting you revisit a call you made or an email you sent in the recent or not-so-recent past.
Users of this popular app can also back up browser history and bookmarks. Most people have no doubt inadvertently deleted a favorite website from their bookmarks or accidentally deleted their browser history, only to later discover they wanted quickly and effortlessly revisit that site. Now, with Backup Your Mobile, you can ensure that this information is copied, safe and secure elsewhere. Likewise, your Android calendars and dictionaries can be backed up, meaning a damaged or lost phone won’t mean forgotten appointments.
With rooted devices, users can also back up and restore applications data, Wi-Fi passwords and secure systems settings. Need to recall text messages or multimedia messages? No problem. Backup Your Mobile can save this information and back it up to another medium so that you’ll always have this information, even if your phone dies or is damaged.
So where will the backups go? Again, that’s the user’s choice, and Backup Your Mobile offers great file storage media. When a backup is created, users can elect to send the information to Google Drive, Dropbox or OneDrive—all of which are reliable options. Users may also transfer data from one mobile device to another.
Users can schedule backups and restores, or they can go with automatic backups. Again, the choice is in the hands of the user.
Backup Your Mobile offers a long list of great features, but they still have room for improvement. Here are some examples:
- Unfortunately, multi-language support and capabilities are not available with Backup Your Mobile. This is a somewhat surprising omission, as more and more business contacts and dealings are done with speakers of other languages.
- The app is relatively new, as it is currently on version 1.8.06. This isn’t necessarily a horribly negative aspect of the app, but it does signify that it’s still in its infancy and might still have some bugs to be worked out.
- Backup Your Mobile won’t work on all Androids—just 2.3 and up.
- Backup Your Mobile has storage capabilities up to 4.1MB. This is very small, compared to many services that offer unlimited storage.
