Review from Troy Miller
Premium App, full license is worth every penny I switch devices and ROMs all the time. This app makes my life so much easier. The fact that multiple cloud storage options are included with the premium version makes this even more worthwhile.
You just found what you looked for! Bought the premium for Google Drive backup without trying the demo first. THIS WORKS BRILLIANTLY! Normally i dont take time to write reviews but with this, I had to. Fast and easy way you backup your apps (WITH APP DATA!!) without having to root your phone and torch your warrenty! So worth the price. 5 starts
simply awesome! I didn't even know that there is such an application, able to backup everything without root. You need more marketing mate. Suffice it to say, this is godlike when moving from GB to JB and viceversa, without wanting to root your phone for various reasons. Managed to backup everything including SMS history and game data. Once again, much appreciated! PS: Could you make it appear as compatible with my i9070 as well? For some reason I cannot install the app on it.
It changed the way my device functions, the Windows drivers don't work for me, I paid for premium so I could use Dropbox instead but it STILL requires you get Windows drivers to work (WARNING would be nice). I asked the developer by his published email address for help to just uninstall it and restore my phone. It's the middle of the next week and no response. The device change was this wants you to change the mode it connects to your PC for file transfers (MTP vs PTP I believe it's called)... but the usual place in settings for you to undo that is missing on my phone (Carrier diabled? No idea - it's not where it should be for my version of android and search doesn't find it). I would definitely pay $10 to have this uninstalled cleanly - maybe he should sell that as "Helium Premium Plus".
It actually works! How awesome is that?! I tried so many other data backup apps, and this seems this is the only one that actually works. To be clear: I have *non rooted* Nexus 4 and 5, and I am able to migrate my app data (save games, text messages, etc) from one device to the other. This is just awesome! If there's any justice in the world, try the app and then give the developers their well earned 3 fiddy :D Seriously though, the free version works as well, but if you need cloud backup to migrate, you need to pay for the Premium version. But, like I said, it's absolutely worth it because it actually *works*.
Best backup app out there I love this app, it is one of the fastest ways for me to sync data between my phone and tablet. However, a couple of things that would make it perfect: *Schedule backup of ALL apps; at the moment every time I install a new app, I need to update scheduled backup to include those apps. *Remote start of backup; if I wanted to move work from my phone to my tablet I would need to start a backup on one device and restore it on the other. A one-click solution on the receiving device would be much easier.
Amazing This app was well worth the price. Being able to sync my app data to my Google Drive has been extremely useful. As someone that unlocks the bootloader/roots and flashes her phone with custom roms frequently, I often had to sign into all my apps again. This eliminates that step in most of my everyday apps and backing up/restoring is a breeze using my Google Drive for backups. It doesn't work for some high security apps and sensitive apps such as e-mail apps, banking apps and apps that store credit card information. For everything else though, it's awesome!
Carbon was renamed to Helium. (trademark issues)
