Worked exactly as advertised I performed a factory reset on my phone and wanted to have all of my text messages intact after getting it set back up. This app did exactly that. It took over an hour, but that's because I had over 32,000 text messages to restore! Worked like a charm. Thanks for the fully functional app.
Nice app, interesting features and no nagging stuff around. I miss one feature though: data sent by email are not compressed and since my email provider limits to 10Mb, the email backup feature is useless (even generates an app error and a delivery failure email) here and it's probably the case elsewhere. I think that (an optional) compression would be an interesting feature even for cloud sync'ing, saving a lot of bandwidth since data is mostly text (and the XML overlay adds a lot more of it).
Quick, easy, effective. I was able to do the whole backup and restore between devices in about 5 minutes. There was some annoyance getting the old messages to show up again in Hangouts, but that is NOT an issue with this app - just letting people know. After a restart: it was all there again!
Worked perfectly! Got the Note 7 and didn't like some of the system changes so, before returning it, I used this to merge the messages from the Note 7 with those existing on my Galaxy S4 and it did it perfectly and in chronological order. Past restores with Kies didn't do this good of a job. Great job devs! If you have a donate version, I'd be happy to contribute!
Very useful app I have used the app for over 3 years now and works very well. I have backed up and restored SMS over several devices and device resets. I love the scheduled back up future introduced recently. No need to worry about sms if device crashes without warning.
Thanks for integrating the network add-on and making the main page cleaner with great new features! Would like the ability to schedule backups based on specific days of the week (i.e. Mon, Tues ...) rather than the current "Repeat every..." method. Backups & restores are fast and reliable for full backups, Archive mode seems to result in file corruption (already reported this). Been using this for few years now, great app!
· Cloud upload features now integrated to the main app.
· New permission to access account information to authenticate with Google Drive and Gmail for cloud uploads
· More reliable restore process while in background & resuming after interruption
· Better handling of selected conversation changes in Archive Mode
