There is both a free and premium version of the app, with the Titanium Backup PRO Key root having more features and protection than the Titanium Backup root app.
- Several features
- Market Doctor tool
- App service
- Unlimited storage
- Frequent updates
No other Android backup app has all of the features and backup abilities that Titanium Backup offers users. From typical backup/restore options to branding your own apps, Titanium backup offers the most complete Android backup service. Users can also rest assured that their data is protected because Titanium promises to protect all backed-up data against deletion.
One feature that stands out is the "Market Doctor" tool. This allows users to re-link all of their apps to the Google Play Market. If a user decides that they do not want to have all of their apps (or certain apps) linked to the Market, they can also "destroy all market links."
Those who download the Titanium Backup app will be able to sync, backup, and restore apps, SMS, MMS, calls, and bookmarks to Dropbox, Box, or Google Drive. They will also have the option of manually backing up phone data or scheduling regular backup processes.
Titanium Backup offers a superior level of service when it comes to working with apps. There is an App freezer (which includes batch support and will freeze/defrost/launch apps in one click), as well as a converter which allows you to convert user apps to system apps and vice versa. Titanium Backup also allows users to backup, verify, and un-install apps in one shot. The Titanium Backup app is all-around simple to operate.
- Root required
- Not all features are free
Users are required to root their Android device in order to use all of the features offered by Titanium backup. While it is not necessarily difficult to "root" an Android device, it will require a few extra steps before the installation process for the Titanium Backup app can begin. Some customers might consider this a burden.
In order to receive the full features and protection, users will be required to purchase the Titanium Backup PRO Key root app. There is a one-time payment for the app, which costs $6.58. Users can opt out and simply download the free version, but the level of security and the tools available are limited if accessible at all. While it is a little more expensive than other backup apps (typically $4.99), it does come with more features and tools than other backup services.
