Keeping a backup is a MUST when it comes to personal computing devices. Be it computers, smartphones, tablets and whatnot! Smartphone usage has grown immensely in the last 5 years or so. Consumers are willing to save as much time as possible to automate tasks on their personal devices. Having a complete backup becomes an important aspect.
We have covered some versatile applications for Android OS which let users automate tasks and settings. G Cloud is one such app, which allows users to automatically and securely back up data from smartphones to an online secure cloud. Users can easily restore from created backup at any point in time, on any device. Once the initial setup is done, the user is allocated 1 GB of dedicated space which is not enough as compared to other secure cloud storage providers. But users can earn up to 8 GB more for free by following some steps. Which include: writing a review about the app, inviting friends, sharing and liking on Facebook, and Tweeting about Gcloud or following Gcloud on Twitter.
After installation, the user is presented with a dashboard on the screen. Files, folders and required data which is to be backed up can be selected. Backup from the attached SD Card becomes available as well. Contacts, call logs, messages, photos, videos, music, documents, system settings and browser data can be selected. The total size would be calculated and displayed on the app screen (at all times). A quick tap on Backup Now would transfer selected data onto Gcloud.
To restore onto a new or existing device; simply install the G Cloud app, log in with user credentials and navigate to the Restore screen. Available folders would appear which can be restored. Select folders and hit restore. By accessing app settings, users can enable notifications, set a backup schedule, change battery saver level, account settings, delete files from backup and more.
Feel free to try G Cloud app. We have successfully tested it on devices such as Nexus S, Galaxy Nexus, Nexus 4 and Samsung Note. The ability to back up system settings and browser data is a plus point for this application. It’s fast, secure and easily retrievable. And can easily be said that Gcloud is an Android app which allows users to easily back up their devices without having root access.
