The Good

With over 3 million downloads, MyBackup is one of the most popular Android backup apps on the market. With storage options and additional features for “rooted” Androids, MyBackup is one of the most secure backup applications and is available for all Android devices.

MyBackup offers a free version, in addition to MyBackup Pro. MyBackup Pro provides a higher level of support while maintaining an easy-to-use interface that beginner Android users can use.

MyBackup Pro has a scheduling option that allows users to schedule when and how often their Android device is backed up and saved to the cloud. Users have the option of saving information to the online secure server (where they are allotted 100 MB) or to their own personal SD card. In addition to saving data on your SD card, users will be able to backup and restore directly from their SD card.

All forms of communication are backed up as well, including: SMS text messages, message attachments (MMS), calendar events, and even the call log. Multimedia is also backed-up, so all of your photos and videos are securely saved either on your SD card or online. System settings, alarms, and even home screens are saved.

Out of nearly 30,000 reviews on the Google Play market, users gave the app an average of 4.6/5 stars. Because it is easy to use, the majority of those who downloaded it seem to enjoy the service.

The Bad

MyBackup does have some room for improvement. Some of these features include:

    • Though there is a version available free of charge, MyBackup Pro does cost $4.99 to download. While MyBackup Pro does offer more features and tools than other Android backup apps, the price may be a deterring factor.
    • While MyBackup and MyBackup Pro does not require Android users to “root” their phones to use their app, there are some features that are only available to “rooted” phones. While rooting an Android is not difficult, some may not want to take the extra step to enjoy the full features of the app.
    • MyBackup offers 100MB of storage which is minimal when compared to competitors who offer unlimited storage options.

The Bottom Line

For users who wish to securely store almost all data and information found on their Androids, MyBackup and MyBackup Pro are quality options. For a small fee, users can easily schedule and manage backup and restoring features. The migrating features allow for flexible use and distribution of data directly between two devices and the backup tools save all personalized settings.

MyBackup’s main limitation is their lack of storage space. Other than this setback, MyBackup is a great option for your needs.
