Novosoft, one of the leading providers of backup solutions worldwide, announces Handy Backup for Android, a data backup and restore utility for Android-based phones. Alliance, Ohio, November 3, 2009 – Novosoft, an international software development and IT-consulting company, today announced the release of a lite version of Handy Backup™, a data backup tool for Android-powered mobile devices.
"We started working on compatibility with Android in early spring of this year," said Alexander Prichalov, head of Novosoft Product Department. "The first beta came out in March, and it was a client software that allowed a PC version of Handy Backup access and back up phone’s data. After collecting user feedback, we saw a huge demand for a standalone Android backup tool, so we immediately started working to come up with a solution."
By creating a portable version of Handy Backup, Novosoft provides owners of Android-based smartphones with an opportunity to back up their data independently of Google services. The current release supports backing up SMS messages, contacts, call logs and SD card data. Contacts are saved in VCard format, so they can be later imported to Outlook or other messaging software.
"While the application may look simple at the first sight, we actually developed the same architecture that we have in desktop version of Handy Backup," said Mr. Prichalov. "Now it will be easy for us to extend the functionality with support for more data, various Android applications, capability to back up to network and FTP locations, and much more – just the way you can back up your PC with Handy Backup."
Handy Backup for Android is free of charge and can be downloaded directly on your phone from the Android Market.
