Best I've found The only decent app I've found that backups actual appdata without root access. It supports a lot of different options for saving your data. The pc activation is just a limitation of Android so I don't really care. Used it several times now to start fresh on both my nexus as cm12 device. On both devices it hasn't made a single error yet. Really satisfied, recommend buying the pro version
Awesome! This app works great, my only wish is that backup groups on one device could be seen by another device for faster selection and restoration process, other than that I love it! Also, not all of my apps get their data restored using helium no matter what method (SD card or cloud) will change back to five stars when this is fixed.
Works fantastically... It just doesn't do exactly what i wanted it to and thought that it did. "Android to Android" app sync is not a live application synchronization feature. It is a manual app by app feature instead of a "when the data changes on one sync it to the other" kind of thing. This is what I am mainly hoping for and look forward to in the future. Otherwise it does what it says has fantastic sync/backup and restore features similar to titanium backup. For some reason though it has some apps labeled as backup disabled.
Helium updates please I absolutely love the cloud backup and restore with premium however I do have some recommendations (1) Doesnt backup apps samsung bundles part of the rom Please resolve.(2) I really wish there is a way to backup account & settings. (3) Also i cannot restore or backup to & from SD directly. (4) ability to save helium app groups (I flash my device frequently & I don't want to reconfigure app groups everytime). I thank the developer as I'm closer to stress free android backup without root
Genius! The N7(2012) is basically our son's, but of course I rooted it. Recently I followed Android Police's, instructions for updating to 4.3, and of course I returned it to full stock. Little people are so curious, you know. So, I'm a little concerned cause I backed up some of his games with Helium while rooted, is the unroofed restore gonna work? Wonderful though, I installed the windows Helium helper and restored complete. Thanks to Koush, I'm not on my four year olds naught list. :-)
Don't buy it Had been using the free version happily for the last couple months with no problem. Paid for this to support the developer, and now it won't work at all. Repeatedly asks me to enable it (even though I don't turn off my device) every backup of every app gives me an error message, and reinstalling the app on my device and desktop made no difference. What had been a great app is now completely useless
Carbon was renamed to Helium. (trademark issues)
