Excellent backup solution for pre-root There are some apps that prevent being backed up using the ADB backup feature this uses, but it's a solid app with good features. Much appreciated

Almost Trying to upgrade an S4 to an S5. This app showed promise for transferring some app data. Installed on both devices with no problem. Backup could not complete without errors and any restore would have forced me to buy the app. No problem buying the app, but please just say so up front!!!!! Uninstalled and moving on.
