Despite’s Android ‘open’ nature, there is no way for non-rooted Android handset owners to make a complete backup of their phone’s data. To take a complete backup of your Android handset, including your installed apps along with its data, users must have root access on their handset.
Titanium Backup is the app for all rooted users to make a backup of their phone. The app is one of the most popular paid apps in the Android Market, and is updated frequently. Sadly, Titanium Backup is not an all in one backup solution since it does not make a backup of user’s personal data like contacts and SMS’s.
Last week, the popular Go Dev team has released a new app in the Android Market, which looks to dethrone Titanium Backup from its position. The app, GO Backup, allows users to make a complete backup of their contacts, SMS, installed apps (only for rooted users) and much more. Another advantage of the app is its ability to backup the settings and preferences of any other Go app installed on your system, which will definitely be appreciated by Go app users.
Two of the biggest advantages of GO Backup over Titanium Backup are its UI and price. Unlike Titanium Backup, which looks down right horrible and confusing, GO Backup has a very polished UI and is very easy to use. The final nail in the coffin of Titanium Backup by the Go Locker is its price – Free. Yes, like every other Go app released by the Go. Dev team, even GO Locker is available as a free download!
