Highly recommended if you are transferring your SMS to a new phone. This app worked as advertised and moved all my messages with pictures & videos from a name brand phone to a generic phone. I tried a couple of different apps and my messages were either cut short or photos missing. This app completely moved my messages & call log to my new phone.

Makes own Selectable (Contact/Date) XML backups of SMS and can upload to Google Drive. From Google drive it can read with their "VIEW BACKUP FILES" web page and create a PDF. Handy to get a single text conversation on to a computer or PDF print out. I am surprised there is no feature on web app to unselect repeating Name/Number field and to select different background colors for Send and Receive. That could not be more than an hour of coding and would be EXTREMELY helpful to most of us users.

I appreciate this app for its ability to back up messages and calls, then upload them to the cloud. However, I suggest an improvement: instead of backing up everything anew each time, the app could simply append new data to the previous week's backup before uploading. This would be more efficient in terms of time and energy. Additionally, I'm encountering an issue with locating my local backups, as the app seems to be in a continuous loading state, making it challenging to delete these backups.
