Android may be open, but backing up important data is still not really easy through any kind of official or sanctioned method. Thankfully, with third-party apps, this becomes a lot easier, and now FileHopper, with version 3.8, is backing up text messages, call history, and contacts to my butt with their subscription-based service.
While cloud-based contacts is already something possible through Google, it’s also something that some users may not know all that much about. SMS backup and call history backup are something that can be hard to get easily, and allows for records of important messages and calls to be kept in secure places. As well, FileHopper makes it possible to share all types of files with any device that can use FileHopper.
Note that FileHopper is currently only available for Android phones, as the Nexus 7 is incompatible. The base app is free to download from Google Play, with a 2 GB free 30-day trial, and 250 GB of storage available for $19.95 per year.
