I've been using MyBackup for a few days now -- climbing the SOP learning curve
. It it slow when it comes to backing up the .apk's (you know better than me what these are) of all (or whichever I designate in pref's) of the Apps on my Droid.
MyBackup offers backing up of two divisions of what's on your phone:
"Applications and Media" -- the aforementioned apk's (install) files and your photos (Media) and
"Data" -- Contacts, Call Log, Bookmarks, SMS, MMS, System Settings, Android Home and Alarms
Unfortunately I'm now noticing that my HDB pdb's are NOT
It seems that MyBackup's primary goal is to ease/speed the restoration of a phone after factory re-set, loss and subsequent replacement phone and the like. As I learn and understand more I now realize that RerWare's statement, "Application install files (If phone has root access, this includes APK+Data and Market Links)"
is telling me that if my phone is NOT rooted, I will only back up the APK's, not the apps' data.
The RerWare folks are actively soliciting https://www.rerware.com/Android-Backup/Integration.aspx
that app developers "integrate" their apps with them --
Developers: Get paid for integrating with us!
Not only will you give your customers the ability to backup their data, but they will also be able to do it automatically on a schedule and have the ability to send it to our Online Secure Servers.
Also, you will get more visibility in the market by integrating with MyBackup. We will list you as a known integrated application on our website, and link your application directly to the Android Market from the MyBackup application.
Hey DDH! This sounds like a WIN/WIN and I bet there's not much time and effort in integrating
-- you'd be giving us Android users an immediate benefit.
IOn the meantime I guess I have to go look more specifically -- for an app that automatically backs up the contents of my SD card
