User reviews of rsync backup for Android
Makkelijk te automatiseren backup van bestanden op de telefoon (of tablet) naar een eigen computer of server. Fijner dan spullen aan de 'cloud' toevertrouwen.

Works great!, I had to use a Linux box to create dropbear keys for windows and cygwin, Smooth sailing after that.

Awesome app for Linux geeks. Unattended backups using Tasker to schedule. Auto sync music library. Excellent!

Doesn't work with Lollipop This is an excellent app, but it doesn't work with Android 5 Lollipop. It just says: "error: only position independent executables (PIE) are supported."

UNRESPONSIVE DEV, great otherwise I have issues connecting when on LTE, Can only connect on WiFi. Emailed Dev to inquire whether this was a limitation of the app or possibly android or maybe even my particular service provider. I also had a question about permissions and setting timestamps. NO REPLY. Otherwise, this app is simple to use, and quite powerful if you're familiar with command line rsync. If not a Google search for "man rsync" will give you all the info you need.

Worth every penny A well done tool! The directions on his site are very helpful to get started properly. I wish I would have found this sooner.

Great time saver I love this app. It syncs all my photos and stuff from the phone. This way I don't have to worry about backup or missing files. Also it saves a lot of time because you only have to set it up once and the just hit the fire-and-forget button. I'm glad, that the new version (2.0.1) works with Android 5.
