Up until the ICS update on my HTC Incredible - this worked perfectly. Now it does not work at all. When is the working version coming out?

How to restore??? Hello, can you please tell me how can we restore our text messages that have been backed up on Gmail? I have backed up my text before factory data reset by this app on my android mobile but unable to restore. How can I get my SMS back to my android inbox from Gmail??

Unbelievably EASY !!! Did EXACTLY what I wanted, and "no fuss, no muss"! (Oh, and I have an HTC, One, android) I think you have to have a Gmail account, but I have plenty of those, AND Yahoo accounts. I just REALLY like to save almost everything, to remember what I said to whom, and when... (: ..... Then, people who don't remember exactly what was said, I just read it back to them).. (: ... I TOTALLY LOVE THIS APP. IT COULDN'T BE SIMPLER! (You can tell they put a lot of effort into making it so)... (: .. Stephie.

What happened to auto-backup? This program was once a must-have on any Android device I got my hands on, but it seems that it will no longer run auto-backup despite the option being ticked (running either 4.2 or 4.4.2). Originally gave this one 5 stars, but had to drop it because of this vital feature. EDIT: it seems that the problem is linked to having Hangouts set as the default messaging app. If you restore the original messaging app as default auto backup works as it always has.
