Thumbs up [APP][2.3+][FREE] Total Backup - backup and restore contact joins, groups & call log

Hello,

I have released a free application called Total Backup that can be used to backup and restore contact joins, contact groups and call log, complete with scheduler, sharing, compression and encryption. It can be downloaded from Google Play, Amazon Appstore and Samsung Apps.


Here is the official description:

Quote:
In a nutshell...
Total Backup offers the ability to backup and restore user contact joins, contact groups and call log with the touch of a button. Never lose your ordered contact list and groups when deleting accounts, reseting or migrating to a new device. Save and restore your call log fast and without hassle.

What is it good for?
Have you spent countless hours managing your contacts? Grouping or joining all those users with different names for each account took forever? And have you ever reseted or migrated to a new device? Lost all those groups or joins? How about your precious call logs? Bring order to chaos right now! Keep restore points updated using scheduled daily, weekly or monthly backups and compress/decompress, delete or share them as you want. You can easily send them by email or bluetooth and restore all that data on other devices. You can even upload them directly to Google Drive or Dropbox account (if you have their applications installed). And if you need extra security you can always choose to encrypt restore points with the AES algorithm.

Features
Here is a list of features Total Backup offers for free:
- backup contact joins, groups (for most of your accounts) and call log
- restore all contact joins, groups and call log at any time
- save restore points on internal memory or on external storage and easily manage them
- automatic scheduled backups with customizable trigger (daily, weekly or monthly) and limit
- support for zip compression/decompression of restore points (can reduce memory usage with over 90% in some cases)
- support for restore point encryption by password (using AES algorithm)
- easy sharing of restore points by email, bluetooth or any other application that supports zip file format
- upload restore points to Google Drive or Dropbox (requires their own applications installed)

Premium features
If you want an ad-free user interface, extra features (like advanced compression, encryption and power saving settings) and support future development you can always buy the Premium features with a low one-time fee of only 1.5$ (depending on your region).

Wiki
If you want to find out why Total Backup needs all those permissions or get an answer to other related questions please visit Total Backup's Wiki located at https://bitbucket.org/adriantc/total-backup/wiki/Home.

Any kind of feedback (bugs, feature requests, comments) is more than welcome. Please do not hesitate to contact me at totalbackup@softwareshack.org or (if you want to track the status of the issue) I invite you to open a report on https://bitbucket.org/adriantc/total...ew&status=open.

Thanks,
Adrian-Costin Țundrea

A new version of Total Backup has been released that brings a few improvements and bug fixes. Here is the change log:

Quote:
+ v1.1.1 (Build 11) - STABLE BUILD
- [Major bug fix] In some scenarios restoring contact joins would crash the application!
- More under the hood changes and optimizations

+ v1.1.0 (Build 10) - STABLE BUILD
- [Major bug fix] Changes to the settings would not be saved after the application was closed (not minimized)!
- Backup and restore now run as services on a different thread so they do not block the UI while executing
- Added notifications that display the progress of the backup and restore processes
- Added internal public memory as a backup destination for devices without removable memory

Hello,

Unfortunately not. I have planned such a feature, but it will be some time before it gets implemented.

Thanks,
Adrian
