Default [APP][2.2+]Backup Your Mobile

Very fast, easy to use and powerful tool to backup and restore.

Application can backup and restore: Contacts, SMSes, MMSes, Call logs, System settings, Secure system settings, Wifi passwords, User dictionary, APNs, Calendar events, Bookmarks and browser history (device dependent).
Wifi passwords and restore of secure system settings works on rooted devices only.

Backups are stored on SD card or in device memory, it is also possible to store data on Google Drive or Dropbox.

It is possible to schedule automatic backups. Application can automatically upload backups to Google Drive, Dropbox.

Thumbs up thx!

thx for making this!

til now i was using super backup (additionally to titanium backup), but since your app offers some useful additions i really like (backup of system settings, user dictionary and browser history and backup to the cloud for example), i just installed your app a few moments ago to give it a try.

does it backup stuff "only" for stock apps or for third party stuff like swype as keyboard or naked browser as browser, too? if not, do you plan to integrate such feature? it probably wouldn't even need big changes or additions (depending on the app to backup) to enhance your app with this, cause in most cases the only thing different is the place where the data (the .db, the .xml or whatever) is stored.

as always, just my thoughts though.

thx again and keep up the good work!


don't forget to press thx if my posts have helped you in any way!

I tested it on stock apps only if Naked Browser or Swype are using own providers, the app will not see their data.

Please make a backup of bookmarks and user dictionary, go to restore tab and tap the magnifier icon.
App will display preview and you will see exactly what was backed-up.

Hi there. This seems like a nice app but playstore says it's incompatible with my HTC desire running CM7.

¿Is this app supposed to run on Gingerbread? ¿Does it support Cyanogenmod settings?

Even if it does not, thanks for writting this app and posting it for free.

Default Re: [APP][2.2+][FREE] Backup Your Mobile

I get a force close every time it gets past the bookmarks bit. I'm on the latest Jellybean ota update.

It makes no mention, so I'm assuming you don't need root?

Great ideas though.

Thanks for this great application!
What a great idea.
I think something like this is very useful, and too often people use apps like Titanium Backup which allow sometimes what I feel is TOO much to be restored.
This seems like a great balance of what's desired by many and what's practical and safe to restore from rom to rom.

My one very small suggestion for now, which is not necessary, especially for a FREE app, but maybe a little reworking of the UI.
I would be happy to help with that if help was wanted/needed at all.
I just think there could be a little more visual balance and some updated icons, etc,..
If this isn't a concern or something you already had planned, then disregard this part of my post.

What I was thinking to balance things out a bit more, and this is just a quick throw together in photoshop, was something like this:
Check boxes moved over to the right side, like most menus in ICS/JB.
Though I was saying, maybe update the icons a little, make the check boxes smaller, like in ICS/JB, so the check mark is actually bigger then the box it rests in.

Something like this with smaller boxes and updated icons, or the same icons even, maybe just retouched a little..

Again, if this was already planned or not a concern, then disregard.
Thanks again for your efforts on this.
Do you have any issues with this being cooked into roms?
