Hi fellow PRO users: You are doing this wrong. I understand that you want continued support of the PRO edition, which is what you paid for. IMHO the correct way is to give 5 star to the PRO version, then download and give 1 star to the FREE version (and then uninstall), so others understand that freemium is not an acceptable business model comparing to properly support your customers.
No More Support? Seriously? I've been using this tool for years; I thought it is one of the best SMS backup tools in the Android™ market, so I decided to buy it a couple months ago. Satisfied until today when I realize that Dev's support for Pro Version is no longer to be continued. It's okay and understandable to make your App totally free, but I just feels being abandoned and a bit dissapointed like other Pro Version Users/Buyers.
Worth every penny I tried the free version was in desperate need to back up my sms & mms. It does exactly what its suppose to do and it even uploads to Google drive which is awesome. Though I wish I could select dark mode dark background..... anyways worth every penny... thank you.
Carbonite bought this app from original dev. Everything is going downhill from now! The original dev was awesome! Now it appears Carbonite has bought it and has plans to make money off it. The pro version is not supported anymore. I highly suspect they are going to destroy this app's reputation by making it monthly or yearly subscription. This is a huge disappointment from the original dev! I can understand he wants to make money but this company will destroy all his hard work and reputation!
Carbonite? Really? A great app about to be ruined. Carbonite now owns the app and the pro version will stop receiving support in mid-February. All development will be shifted to the free app. How will Carbonite monetize the free app? Ads? IAP? Will I still be able to backup my messages where I want to back them up? Or will I be using Carbonite's servers?
I had to "downgrade" to this version because Carbonite took out the ability to restore duplicates in their free app. Sms message get split up after 160 characters, and on my Samsung devices, the split up messages show the exact same date and time, down to the millisecond. I am quite certain this is how this app detects duplicates, so the free app did not restore all of my messages, even though they were clearly backed up! This app works great, but how much longer will it be supported?
NOTE: If you are using the app to backup to external SD Card then do not uninstall the app as that will delete all your back files.
- We’ve added Call Logs backup & restore to the FREE version of the app, and fixed a number of bugs.
- We’ve added the ability to transfer your settings from this paid version of the app to the free version with a single tap! Once you install the free version, you’ll see a prompt to ask you about transferring settings.
