If you have not already installed this, grab it now. This is THE tool to have. Thank you for Helium. :-) I just backed up my most important apps with their data to Google Drive and restored them from GDrive to another, very different Android device in about 30 seconds. Worked perfectly. Doing the same manually would have taken hours! Helium is really great. :-)
Helium I bought this to enable me to back up my save game in Final Fantasy, but I got so much more! I can now access my last play session from any of my devices at any time (provided they have a viable data connection, and have not been restarted since Helium was last enabled on PC). I have a Sony Xperia Z3 Compact, a Tesco Hudl2 and an Acer Iconia One 8 and it works seamlessly on all three. THANK YOU!!!
Excellent so far Only four stars because I've only used it for one backup - Granny Smith game data via Google Drive. Worked perfectly and worth the £3.00 I paid for the premium version. Very impressive that it doesn't require root. The Helium desktop app works well on Mac and is required to enable USB debug mode for Helium.
Does not work as advertised Do not waste your money or time buying this product! I asked for a refund but no response! Backed up multiple applications especially once with sensitive recorded audio files to its cloud sync (Google drive) hoping my data will be recovered once restored but it did not restore any files associated with the apps. You also have to download all the applications you "backed up" in order to restore empty files. How do I get a refund? I'll update rating for better customer service, if that happens.
Seems to be limited to popular brands I have issues with the drivers available. Android yes, but not popular brands as Samsung, Sony, etc. These brands already have their own backup systems. The reason for choosing to pay for this app, is simple. In my case I have a Caterpillar S50 and a Hisense S20 King Kong 2. So I'm left alone again for not being a mainstream consumer. Sorry, but I have to ask for a refund till you can give me a solution to my needs.
Can use some big improvements 1. Please add support for Copy, the best cloud storage option. 2. Whenever I try and backup all my apps to Box, it constantly crashes and gives me errors 3. There's needs to be a quick setting for backing up all your apps to the cloud. Making a scheduled backup is nice, but it seems to be limited by the apps I have installed at the time of creating the scheduled backup. What happens if I create a scheduled backup for all my current apps today, and then tomorrow download a new app. Helium won't back it up.
Carbon was renamed to Helium. (trademark issues)
