Ultimate Backup provides two different backup options for users. There is a free version that contains several characteristics found in efficient backup apps. There is also a Premium version available that comes with additional features that better protect your Android device.
- App management
- Free version
- Backup options
- No root required
- Freeze and defrost options
Ultimate Backup is probably one of the best choices for users who are concerned about the data and information associated with their apps. The tools available for app management include: app uninstaller, freeze system, app converter (converts user apps to system apps and vice versa), links apps to Google Play for automatic updates, kill and force close running apps, select apps to kill at boot, create app groups, send/share your apps, explore an app's data and APK file, clears app data and cache, and fixes permissions on apps. Basically most of the tools and features associated with backing up and protecting your apps can be found with Ultimate Backup.
Users can download the app free of charge (if they wish) and enjoy a majority of the features included in the Ultimate Backup app. There are additional features associated the Premium app, but the free version has proven to do a good job of backing up important phone data.
The data and information stores on your phone can be backed up to Box, Dropbox, Google Drive, or another local storage without an additional fee. If you set up your own Dropbox account, you will be able to backup your Android's data directly to it using Ultimate Backup.
- Limited features without root
- Additional fee for Premium
Like most Android backup apps, Ultimate Backup can be used with either a rooted or un-rooted device. It is important to note, however, that features may be limited if a user has not rooted their device. There have also been complaints from users who do have rooted Android devices that some of the features have failed to operate correctly.
In order to get the best out of the Ultimate Backup App, users will have to pay an additional fee of $2.99 for access to the Premium version.
