Using the Top Backup Applications For Smartphones: Titanium VS MyBackup
Many people think of their PC whenever ‘system backup’ is mentioned. The truth be told, this is not the only device that contains delicate information about your personal and professional life. Your Smartphone is just as vital. Come to think of it, can you use your mobile device for a week without having to store some new data, receiving that vital business contact via SMS that you would want to take your time and properly record later? What about those times you dug through your call log to fish out numbers you forgot to save or when it came up that you need to reply to an SMS that though didn’t seem relevant when it was received two weeks ago? Not to mention that most people, especially those who work on-the-go, manage their professional life; setup and attend meetings, access business files and conduct many other professional tasks on their smartphones.
The list can go on, but this few is just to let you understand that while it is necessary we consistently backup our computers, your mobile device hold important data tied to your personal and professional life that though if not needed today may come handy tomorrow and they need to be properly secured. Even if you don’t plan to lose your smartphone or are too carefully not to do anything that may cause a phone crash, what about when you buy a new smartphone? Won’t you enjoy having a system that can help transfer all the data from the old device to the new one? This is why you need an automatic system that will consistently backup your apps and settings, messages, call logs and every other piece of data on the device.
The Premium Backup Apps for Your Use
There are two major backup applications that have proven to be the best not only for their effective services but also for the simplicity behind their operation. If you are looking for a more robust, effective and user-friendly application that can get the job done with little to no effort, we’d recommend you use Titanium or MyBackup. Let us now examine what these two backup applications have to offer.
Titanium Backup App
Titanium is one of the premium root backup applications for Android. It can handle just about any piece of data on your mobile device including apps, app data, SMS and MMS records, contacts, account passwords and even your social usernames. It is built to provide enough control over backup operations, including the ability to schedule backups, backup different kinds of data, including the ability to backup directly to Dropbox. You can also enjoy extra features like deleting crapware and other left overs from old apps and moving apps to and from the SD card. If something happened and you lost the data on your phone or perhaps would like to restore these apps and other records to a new phone, Titanium will most likely place every single data where it should be.
Titanium is offered with two licenses; the Free and Pro. While the Free license come with most of the features described above, the Pro version come with even extra features including one-click backup, dalvik cache cleaner, unlimited schedules, direct saving to dropbox account and many others like the ability to freeze or delete an application.
