Does exactly as advertised. :0) It would be nice if there was no limit to the number of entries, esp when first using the app. Way around the limit is to regularly maintain a backup archive. I know we can't look forward to automated backups. The dev hasn’t enhanced the app in 18 months, but it would be an amazing enhancement. I would gladly fork over a few bucks to the developer to continue engineering enhancements & maybe offer a Pro ver that manages contacts cross platform (Win, iOS & XML). But the app is truly free.
Best Text & Call Log backup Samsung S4 to Nexus 6 I downloaded 3 different backup apps to transfer my Text & Call Log from Samsung S4 to Nexus 6. The other 2 are SMS Backup & Restore and Super Backup. I created backup files for all 3 and saved them in S4 ext SD card & Dropbox & Google Drive. When I tried to restore my backups on Nexus 6, only this app that was able to retrieve my backups DIRECTLY from Dropbox. The other 2 needs me to copy the backups from external SD card and transfer it to Nexus 6. It restored everything perfectly too. Very satisfied.
Unable to restore. Restore feature can't find the backup files in Google Drive (<Google Drive>/BackupSMSCallLog/). It keep saying no files when the files are there. [Update 8/28/2016] I was able to restore. Turns out, the backup file needs to be in the zip format. But, group sms messages were not restored. So, I'm going to bump my rating from 2 to 4 stars.
All my important messages... Lost I needed to save my messages with my ex-wife for court reasons. Everything went fine the first time I used it and I thought this is great. Then my phone was set to delete old messages and so when this app backed up my information again it overwrote the information that was already there and so now those messages are gone
I've been going back and forth between two Moto X phones (both of which include Motorola's Migrate app), but that doesn't work when transferring TO a device with a custom ROM installed. This filled the gap perfectly! I haven't tried to cummulative backup feature, and don't intend to, so I can't say how well that works, but single backup/restore worked great.
Exactly as described Best I've ever used, just works without bombing you with rubbish. A schedule option for the archive backup would really make this tops, but even though there are other apps that can do this, they still have detracting factors. I'd happily pay for a pro version to do this.
