Working on Lollipop Working with Lollipop (no root). This app was my favourite utility app when I was running 4.4.4 and now it's working on 5.0, too. Great! :D

The best and most reliable ftpapp (and I tried a lot of them) syncback so is able to backup my phone and maintain date and time stamps on the files so subsequent backups only transfer modified or new files
