Team review

" The backup solution ! "

The application has not yet detailed description, however the team assigned the note of 8 / 10. This note is based on the following criteria: Quality, Usefulness, Ease of Use, Privacy Concerns of user data (depending on the permissions required)..

The app is compatible from version 2.3 of Android. Any supperior OS version will support it.

Its weight is very light, less than a megabyte is sufficient to store and operate.

Its number of downloads in the Android Market (Google Play) makes it an extremely popular application and rightly so. More than a million users are using it on mobile or on touch pad.

Negative review Lost so much data!! by anonym
Used the app to backup my phone because I needed to do a factory reset. Then used the app to try and restore my info, and although it reinstalled all the apps I had, it only brought back about 25% (if that) of my photos!!! Really wish I had chosen an alternative. 1/5
Negative review by anonym
i was looking to perform a Full backup (Data, Apps, Settings, Media, etc) and this one read like it fit the bill. it created separate Data & Apps backups. after performing the factory reset, i re-installed MyBackup and attempted the Restore process. to my dismay, instead of transplanting the apps and settings, this utility simply copied the apks. since they didn't come from the play store, to install them i had to disable trusted publishers protection. after copying 200+ apks, i had to MANUALLY "Review,Approve,Install,Done,Repeat." through each one. all these APKs were being attributed to the one account i was on, instead under the accounts that some of them were paid for, rendering some of them "unregistered". after 2+ hours of installing the apps, i rebooted as instructed in order to "recover all data". NONE of the apps preserved their settings; no logins, no configuration. NOTHING. This completely defeats the purpose of using the utility. I could have manually added all the accounts back and let Google's own auto restore feature bring all the apps back under their rightful users. i'd give this negative stars if i could. 1/5
Negative review Bought pro license now they want more $$ by anonym
I purchased the pro license a year ago November, no mention of a subscription back then. Now when I attempt to use it the product is requiring a repurchase and not letting me reenter my license. Not ethical. 1/5
Neutral review Good app but very poor customer service by anonym
This is a good app that does a very complete backup of everything. Sometimes you will have questions and Reware don't reply to questions. Customer service is non existent 3/5
Positive review by anonym
Great for recovery. . As my LG doesn't reticulate properly and apps get lost ..This is good to save and recover 5/5
Positive review Cool app by anonym
Really handy when switching phones. Lost a lot of photos recently so its a relief knowing they are all backed up 4/5
Positive review Best Cloud Storage for Android (no kidding!) by anonym
I've been searching diligently for an Android app that seamlessly, flawlessly, and with light speed (the speed is truly amazing) does exactly what it claims to do without a single hiccup. I love that it allows me to choose between having and not having rooted my device, since I'm still undecided on the root/not root issue. All the features are there for my requirements despite my non-rooted Galaxy S7 Edge. I also purchased 40GB extra cloud storage for $3/monthly and upgraded to Pro for $3.99/annually. Wow! 5/5
Negative review by anonym
Beware subscription owners: If you have previously purchased a subscription to My Backup Pro, do not update the app, as the new version does not support pro subscriptions and you will not have access to the pro features of the app until you REPURCHASE the $6.99 PRO version. BAIT AND SWITCH 1/5
Positive review Highly recommended by anonym
Very user-friendly and backs up those files that's some other programs aren't able to. Recommend the pro version is definitely worth the money and very affordable 5/5
Negative review Note 7 Restore on Pro version ? by anonym
Due to the Samsung recall I purchased this app to backup a lot of apps, accounts, and configurations before turning it in. When I received my new phone and ran the restore it only partial restored some apps and settings. Many apps missing, and had to spend a considerable amount of time bringing my phone back to original state, not what I was hoping for with this application. 2/5
Negative review by anonym
I wouldn't trust this developer for anything that requires a purchase. I paid for the pro features subscription so I could copy my home screen setting (folders, icons, etc) to my new phone and it didn't work. I got a fail error "Home Shortcuts: Failed: Provider not supported", and the developer did not respond within the 48 hours I had to request a refund from Google. Stick with one of the many other free apps for backing up your data. The only unique thing about MyBackup was copying the home screen layout, and that didn't work. 1/5
Negative review Complete sh*t by anonym
They charge you, YEARLY, to have any feature worth having, such as moving a backup to a new device! Whats the point without that?! Greedy bastards. 1/5
Positive review by anonym
Best and easy to use. Purchase the pro version. Waited 30 days to see any glitches NONE. Thank you. However, my phone can not be rooted, would like all benefits and would pay extra. 5/5
Negative review It does nothing from what it promises by anonym
The only thing it is good at is to take your money, it can only restore the program but that you can do from play store and a lot easier IT CANOT RESTORE YOUR DATA AS IT PROMISES. 1/5
Negative review Not worth 1cent by anonym
The whole gig is designed to get you to upgrade and then only useful if you need to recover or migrate old texts. Most of what it purports to recover already covered by Google. Support responds slowly if at all. Pretty arrogant 1/5
Positive review Wish I had found this app sooner by anonym
Great app for backing up and saving apps to a OTG thumb drive. One thing I noticed in the reviews after getting this app was people bitching about the app not working on another phone. I clearly saw that stated in the free version I downloaded and am totally happy with this app still. 5/5
Negative review Rerware ought to be taken to court! by anonym
Before installing the so-called free version, the user should be made aware that restore won't be able with this free version in case it's not to exactly the same device. Thus, restoring to your identical warranty replacement phone is a very surprising NO GO, let alone to any other device. In short, you install the 'free' version, but practically always end up paying for the pro version. The fact that this is not totally clear in advance reeks of misrepresentation of fact and even swindle. Be aware! 1/5
Negative review The trouble comes with the restore! by anonym
It was very user friendly I thought...ha!ha! Made my backup with ease. About 2 weeks later I wanted to use it. It restored the apps just great. But, guess what, it absolutely refuses to restore the data. THAT IS THE MOST IMPORTANT PART AND IT FAILED. I AM DISAPPOINTED BEYOND BELIEF NOT TO MENTION STRUGGLING TO SURVIVE THE LOSS OF THE DATA!!! 2/5
Positive review Problems with Google Drive by anonym
I tried doing a backup on Google Drive. Restore ended up a total failure. I tried to look at the zip backup and the error message said it was corrupted. I tried backing up again with Dropbox and it appears to be working now. Hopefully restore will work when/if I need it. 4/5
Negative review Unable to restore my backup by anonym
