A couple of weeks ago a new backup solution for the Android platform was launched called Carbon. This app which is developed by Koushik Dutta aka Koush, who also developed the ClockworkMod Recovery app, is probably the best app backup and synch solution available for the Android platform today. The best part of this all is that you don’t need a rooted device for you to be able to use this.
Carbon- App Sync and Backup is now available for download at Google Play. There’s the free version and there’s also a premium version which will cost you $4.99. The free version lets you do backups on your SD card or your PC. The premium version gives you more features and does not include any ads. Some features available in the premium version are automatic backup schedules, Android to Android synch as well as cloud backup and restore. You will be able to use several cloud services such as Dropbox, Box and Google Drive.
If you own a Motorola Android device then you won’t be able to use this app. The developer explained that there is a bug in the Motorola system that breaks up Androids backup system. Until this is resolved by Motorola the app is unusable. The good news is that other Android devices running at least Android 4.0 will be able to use this.
Carbon allows you to easily backup your apps as well as app data to a local or cloud storage. Rooted devices will be able to do this easily while unrooted devices will need extra steps for this to be accomplished. Either way, it’s still simple and effective.
The reigning backup leader for the Android platform is Titanium Backup however the entry of Carbon makes it a good alternative for anyone that does not have a rooted device.
If you are looking for an easy to use and free backup solution then head out over to Google Play and download Carbon now which just recently got out of beta.
