Keep Your Data Safe By Backing Up Automatically

Posted by Kevin Jackson in "Android Software" @ 05:00 AM

http://lifehacker.com/#!5784857/how...ckup-on-android

"In an ideal world, your Android's apps, their settings, and your system settings would automatically back up to the cloud so that if you lost your phone, bought a new one, or installed a new custom ROM, setting up a fresh device with everything in place would be a piece of cake. The good news: This utopian Android backup actually is possible. Here's how to set it up."

Lifehacker has a great write-up on keeping your (rooted) Android device backed up automatically. Titanium Backup alone is a great reason to root your phone, so check out this guide and, if you haven't rooted yet (why not?), check out this guide to rooting, also from Lifehacker.

Sweet Home! Makes Automatic Backups of Photos and Videos Easy

Posted by Kevin Jackson in "Android Software" @ 05:00 AM

"The free Sweet Home! app uploads photos and videos taken with the camera of your Android device to a shared network location of your choice. It can do this automatically-as soon as you get home and connect to your wi-fi network-or manually if you prefer."

Here is a cool and useful new app for those who take lots of pictures and videos with your phone. If you've ever used an Eye-Fi enabled card with your camera your familiar with the basic concept; when your device connects to a pre-determined wireless network it automatically uploads the photos and videos to a location of your choosing. Unlike Eye-Fi, this currently only works with a local network share, so no auto-uploading to Picasa, Flickr, or Facebook, but seeing as this is currently an early release, maybe we could see some of those features in the future. Either way, the ability to automatically, wirelessly back up your photos and videos is great.

Set up is dead simple, as you can see from the screen-shot above, and it works as advertised. Quick, simple, and a great concept. Let us know at the "Discuss" link if you have tried the app and what you think about it.

MobileSync Pro - Sync, Share, Backup, and Protect

Posted by Danny Simmons in "Windows Phone Software" @ 11:00 AM

"Retina-X Studios, LLC announced today the release of MobileSync Pro, a cross-platform mobile phone freeware for Android, BlackBerry, iPhone and Windows smartphones. MobileSync Pro is the most versatile and feature-rich mobile software utility yet to come out from Retina-X Studios, which has bundled a 4-in-1 solution by incorporating backup, theft-protection and file sharing solutions, besides its key function as an all-purpose sync solution."

Most mobile phones have built-in synchronization for your contacts, email, calendar, etc. But what happens if you want to change platforms. How do you move your data if you want to ditch your iPhone to try out Windows Phone 7? Or move from BalckBerry to Android? In most cases this would not be an easy process. MobileSync Pro is a free application that can do this for you. It also adds the capability of sharing your data with others. They offer 200 MB of free storage. They are also currently working to offer support for Windows Phone 7 and other platforms that should be finalized in the coming weeks. Curious? Check them out here.

And When The Cloud Breaks, Your Data Will Fall...

Posted by Jason Dunn in "Digital Home Talk" @ 08:00 AM

It's all about The Cloud these days - your data, you entertainment, your everything - stored on a service that you can access with any online connection. The benefits are many, but what you don't always hear about are the down-sides of everything being cloud-based. What if you get locked out of your account? I've heard of more than a few people that get locked out of their Gmail account or who can't access their Gmail calendar. It happens to Hotmail and Yahoo users as well. What if the company hosting your information deletes it, either accidentally or not, or goes out of business? That's not an uncommon problem. In terms of uptime most cloud services are fairly robust, when things go wrong, they can really ruin your day. Read more...
